Common Signs of Fuel Injection Problems
The fuel injector pressurizes and pumps fuel through a valve in a cone-shaped spray into the engine. The mist makes it easier to ignite evenly and burn fuel more efficiently. Eventually, deposits from fuel build up. This can clog the injector and decrease performance. A few symptoms of necessary fuel injection repair are rough idling, hard starting, poor acceleration, hesitation, and reduced gas mileage. Checking if your fuel injectors are clogged isn’t easy, it can often take an hour to access and evaluate. A certified technician should perform the inspection and decide if any action is vital.
How to Keep Your Fuel Injectors Cleaner for Longer
If your vehicle model year is newer than 2004, you are less likely to need your fuel injectors cleaned as often. This is because more modern designs and better additives within fuel reduce the amount of buildup that occurs, but this does not eliminate the need for periodic cleaning. The best thing you can do to prolong their lifespan is to use quality gas and have your fuel injectors serviced every 45,000 miles.
