What's Your Fuel Injector Doing For You?

Fuel injection is one of the greatest innovations in automotive technology to date. From Blue Lakes Auto Repair in Twin Falls, ID, here’s a little more information on the fuel injector.

Fuel injectors provide a wide variety of benefits. They allow for exact amounts of fuel to be delivered at the exact right time, meaning you get the cleanest, most optimal burn every time your engine fires; the result is reduced emissions, better fuel mileage and performance, and less carbon buildup. The advent of injectors is one of the main factors that contribute to our ability to use computerized automotive systems in modern automobiles. Injectors are also overall extremely reliable. They smooth out idle, deliver performance on demand, run quietly, and rarely fail altogether.

In principle, fuel injectors are very simple. More or less, they are a spring-loaded, pressurized solenoid - when the computer tells them to open, they do, spraying an atomized mist of fuel into the cylinder, ready for combustion. They bypass the need for temperamental carburetors and eliminate inconsistencies in fuel delivery, so long as they are working correctly. Good fuel system maintenance is the key to keep them operating efficiently. Fuel system cleaner or having them removed and connected to special equipment for cleaning can maintain or restore an injector right back to its full potential. On the occasion that one does fail, aftermarket and OEM injectors are readily available.

If you’re experiencing a failing injector, you may notice a miss in your engine, a check engine light, loud ticking coming from one or more injectors, or leaking around the port. Fortunately, they don’t have to be replaced often, come with good warranties, and aren’t typically a difficult job - in most cases you can be in and out in no time, with your car running like new. For injector cleaning, servicing, and all your other maintenance or repair needs, our technicians have you covered.
