Fuel Injector Service San Diego

Maybe Your Fuel Injectors Need Servicing

Cleaning and servicing your fuel injector system will remove the buildup and ensure proper functioning. You will know you need it if your vehicle is reluctant to start (it doesn’t start consistently or requires additional cranking to start) or if it appears to stutter or be down on power. All of these occurrences are signals you should be attentive to. The condition of your vehicle says whether your injectors need cleaning and/ or servicing. Do you have your car serviced regularly or have you been putting it off? Is the gas you use top quality or the cheapest variety you can find?

Cleaning will remove the dirt and particles that have built up over time and this will restore your car’s performance and reduce emissions at the same time. The performance boost will entail a better gas mileage and general drivability, which will effectively save you money on gas and prevent expensive repairs down the road. It also saves you the stress of experiencing a breakdown, since it increases safety and reliability.


Preventive servicing will make sure your vehicle is fully functional and dependable in the years to come. The manual you have as the owner provides precise schedules for maintenance of all the components and systems. They are usually outlined with respect to mileage.

There are other indicators or reasons for you to check on your fuel injectors apart from start problems. Maybe you are rebuilding the engine – inspect the fuel injector. Your vehicle has a high mileage and you’ve noticed it has been consuming more fuel than usual. The light “check engine” is on and a code points to the fuel system. Maybe you didn’t pass the emission inspection. You are experiencing some general drivability problems such as poor performance, start hesitation, misfiring, detonation, surging or poor idle.

There could be indicators in the engine performance. This involves losing power, dropping of gas mileage, pinging during acceleration, stalling or continued sputter when the engine is off. Other signs are also noxious smells coming from the exhaust pipe, rough engine running at certain or all speeds, the engine backfiring or spitting, the warning lights are always on.

The common causes of fuel injector malfunctioning are seals around the injectors letting in air. The incoming air limits the amount of fuel that reaches the engine. Leaking can occur in different places: in the injectors leak off pipes that are under the engine cover or harness, in the fuel filter housing (which should then be cleaned) and in the cylinder head seals.

For both pre-emptive and corrective maintenance, you should get a reputable servicing company.
