We at Dave's Auto Service in Chula Vista are very familiar with how fuel injection works. In order for your vehicle's engine to run smoothly, it needs to be provided with the proper ratio of fuel to air. A fuel injector is an electronically controlled valve that supplies fuel from the fuel pump to the vehicle's engine. The fuel injector is capable of opening and closing multiple times a second. When the injector is activated, an electromagnet moves a plunger that opens the valve, allowing pressurized fuel to squirt out through a tiny nozzle. The nozzle is designed to make the fuel as fine a mist as possible so that it can burn easily. The fuel injector is controlled by the vehicle's engine control unit, or ECU.
Whether you drive a Acura, Alfa Romeo, AMG, Audi, or something else, the signs of a damaged or dirty fuel injector are the same. A faulty fuel injector will mess up the intervals in which fuel is sprayed or will prevent fuel from being sprayed into the engine altogether. It is possible that your fuel injector is clogged or dirty and does not need to be replaced entirely. At Dave's Auto Service in US, we offer fuel injection cleaning & service and can help you clean your injectors out or replace them if needed. In addition to fuel injection repair, we also offer services in Automotive repair, scheduled maintenance, and tune-ups, and Maintenance & Electrical Diagnostic.
Here are some signs of a faulty fuel injector:
If your vehicle is not getting enough fuel from the fuel injectors, it will fail to accelerate properly and your engine will vibrate or misfire.
Before vehicles are released, they go through a fuel economy test conducted by the EPA to get an estimated mileage for your car. If your car is not getting as many miles per gallon as it once did, there may be an issue with your fuel injector.
