Fuel Injection

What is a Fuel Injection System?

During a fuel injection, your vehicle’s fuel injectors are checked.  Located in the intake manifold of the engine, fuel injectors use small nozzles to spray a mist of fuel that your engine can burn.  Fuel injectors work with your throttle valve, which lets air into the engine whenever you use the gas pedal.  Over time, fuel injectors can become dirty.  Clogged injectors can negatively affect your vehicle’s performance, leading to poor gas mileage and dirty exhaust emissions.  Short trips make it especially easy for dirt and grime to build up inside the fuel injector nozzles.  Because a healthy fuel injection system is important for overall vehicle maintenance, we advise you to keep watch over your fuel injectors and have them checked and serviced often.

When Should I Get Fuel Injection Service?

If you are experiencing lean misfire, poor acceleration, or rough idling, your fuel injection system may be to blame.  When you encounter any of these issues or notice that your fuel injectors are clogged with dirt and grime, give Ric and Rocky’s Family Car Care Center a visit.  Our expert staff understands that dirty injectors can bring various problems to your vehicle, and we are equipped with the right tools for cleaning them.  We will work hard to remove any build up in the nozzles of your injectors.

In addition, we can check the pressure and volume of your fuel pump and pressure regulator.  While inspecting your vehicle’s fuel injection system, we can also inspect fuel lines, fuel rails, throttle components, and fuel filters.  We will also check to see if your vehicle’s sensors are performing correctly.  When your vehicle is ready for a fuel injection service, don’t delay.
