If you want to get the most out of each tank of fuel, clean fuel injectors are essential. When was the last time that you cleaned your vehicle’s fuel injectors? If it’s been several years (or never) it’s probably time for a cleaning!
Overview of Fuel Injectors
As you may already know, combustion engines require three things to produce power: fuel, air and spark. Since the 1990s, most vehicles use an electronic fuel injection (EFI) system to supply the engine with fuel. More specifically, the fuel injectors spray a precise amount of fuel into each cylinder. When combined with air and spark, it creates the combustion needed to power the vehicle.
How Fuel Injectors Get Clogged
Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for fuel injectors to become clogged. The additives and contaminants used in gasoline will work their way to their vehicle’s injectors, restricting or otherwise disrupting the flow of fuel to the cylinders. This doesn’t happen over night, but rather it typically takes years for deposits to accumulate.
While fuel filters protect against some contamination, they won’t prevent all of it. Therefore, you should clean your vehicle’s fuel injectors on a regular basis to ensure a high level of performance and fuel efficiency.
Symptoms of Dirty Fuel Injectors
Common symptoms of dirty or clogged fuel injectors include the following:
- Rough idling
- Failed emissions test
- Low RPMs
- Poor gas mileage
- Engine surging
- Trouble starting
How to Clean Fuel Injectors
The average cost of replacing fuel injectors is $643 to $1,671. The good news is that you don’t have to replace your vehicle’s fuel injectors just because they are dirty or clogged. You can restore them back to working order by using a fuel injector cleaning product.
