Before the popularity of fuel injectors, carburetors were tasked with turning gasoline to power for the engine. Due to the inefficiency of carburetors which only takes the engine vacuum and engine throttle position and doesn’t have a direct method of knowing when the engine is started, the fuel injection system which is controlled by a computer is favored along its many factors which include:

  • Air pressure
  • Air volume
  • Engine RPM
  • Engine start
  • Engine temperature
  • Throttle position
  • Vehicle speed

These factors aid the injection system inefficiently powering a car, allows it to run better, and reduces unwanted emission production. Just as our arteries build up from fatty foods and our blood flow gets blocked, the fuel injectors also become clogged and dirty.

CONSEQUENCES OF BAD FUEL INJECTORS

  • Engine knock or detonation that can cause catastrophic engine failure
  • Engine unable to reach full RPM
  • Failed Emissions Test
  • Increased fuel consumption
  • Poor engine performance
  • Poor idle
  • Smoke from tailpipe
  • Starting issues
  • An injector may not only get clogged, but it may also leak and this can lead to:
  • Fuel odors inside and around the car
  • Hard starting
  • Hydro lock, which can lead to catastrophic engine failure
  • Increased fuel consumption
  • Oil thinning, which can lead to catastrophic engine failure

A leaking injector is prone to a fire hazard, and as it cannot be repaired, it has to be replaced. Even with a good practice of using chemical injector cleaning solution twice a year, clogs or leak are hardly avoidable.

CLEANING A FUEL INJECTOR

The symptoms of a clogged or dirty injector aren’t very different from that of a bad coil, bad spark plug, or a broken spark plug wire. Our skilled ASE technicians are able to use advanced diagnostic equipment to check for fuel injector issues. The performance of your vehicle and your overall safety greatly depends on the proper functioning of your injector.

Upon noticing a lack of acceleration, it may be time for a fuel system cleaning. A dirty fuel system or filter may rob you of fuel efficiency and performance. Auto & Fleet Mechanic in Modesto, CA have the right tools, essential materials, and the professional training to clean your fuel system of efficiency-robbing deposits and replace your ailing fuel filter when it needs replacements.

Every time you use the gas pedal, you are in control of how much air and fuel the engine utilizes. Deposits overtime results in reduced fuel economy, power loss, and other driving issues. A scheduled fuel system cleaning can help maintain the optimal engine. Do you need to replace your clogged or old fuel filter? Schedule a visit with us today.

FUEL PUMP REPLACEMENT SERVICES

The health and how efficient your car’s fuel pump functions is essential to your vehicle’s overall health. Your car’s fuel pump transports fuel from the tank to the carburetor following the engine’s requirements.

FUEL PUMP REPLACEMENT AND REPAIR

One of our technicians at Auto & Fleet Mechanic can ensure that your car’s fuel pump relays, filters, pickups and the electrical connectors are functioning properly before our mechanics replace the pump. If the pump is discovered to be faulty, it will be removed and replaced with your approval. Signs of leakage, basic safety inspection, and engine light codes will be routinely checked.

A regular maintenance and repair habit is necessary for the proper distribution of gasoline and diesel engines for combustion purposes. The injector sprays fuel in following a precise pattern in order to create the ideal combustion condition in the cylinder. The aerosolized fuel combines with airflow from the intake to create the mixture that is ignited by the spark plugs firing in gasoline engines and compression in diesel engines. If the pattern isn’t precise, the fuel remains unburned, and that causes rich conditions in the engine. Not long after, rich conditions lead to poor gas mileage, carbon buildup and power losses. Luckily, your fuel injectors can be serviced by a skilled technician to keep your engine in good working order.

SCHEDULING FUEL INJECTION SERVICE

If cleaning the fuel injector does not produce the desired result, each line can be cleaned individually while outside the engine, albeit by a professional on most makes and models. The individual cleaning process entails the injector getting soaked in a detergent which breaks up residue deep in the chambers. The flow rate of the injector is tested after each session of cleaning to ensure that the pattern matches the manufacture configuration.

During the fuel injector service, the word line and other components in the system are often replaced. Your technician will thoroughly inspect to identify the elements needing repair so as to provide you with accurate service cost. The order the technician produces will break down how the parts and labor prices contribute to the fuel injection service cost.

CONSIDERING FUEL INJECTOR REPLACEMENT

If necessary, your fuel injectors can be replaced with aftermarket or OEM components. The fuel injector replacement process is often performed after the cleaning procedure clears residue out of the gas tank, pumps and lines. Our technicians can perform the injector replacement service to restore the power and efficiency of the fuel system.

NEED EXPERT HELP?

Our team of skilled mechanics is always at your service. They will perform a thorough inspection and carry out any necessary repairs on your fuel injector. You can also have them order fuel injector upgrades that will aid the improvement of your vehicle’s engine components. If your vehicle is stock, you can simply go with the regular injector size for the best gas mileage and performance characteristics.
