Clogged Fuel Injectors Cause Poor Vehicle Performance

Clogged Fuel Injectors Cause Poor Vehicle Performance
| By: Christian Brothers Automotive

Fuel Injectors Directly Affect Fuel Efficiency

In a nutshell, fuel injectors are responsible for pressurizing and pumping fuel into the engine. Although that sounds relatively simple, performing this task is delicate work, and the injectors do it just precisely enough to allow the engine to make better use of your fuel. During the process, the injectors spray fuel into the engine, creating a perfect sharp cone shape as opposed to the solid stream you would expect with a hose. The cone shape facilitates the fuel igniting and burning evenly.

Unfortunately, the fuel spray will eventually leave the area dirty and clogged, even from normal use. Once the spaces have been soiled, the fuel injectors can no longer do their job as efficiently.

Clogged Fuel Injector Symptoms

You can usually tell there may be a fuel injector problem by waiting for one of the following symptoms:

  • Decreased fuel efficiency
  • Poor engine performance
  • Hard starting
  • Pre-ignition
  • Throttle hesitation

If any of these things happen, simply cleaning the fuel injectors will make an immediate difference to how your vehicle drives. In fact, most drivers see a marvelous change in the behavior of their car. Cleaning your fuel injectors will pay for itself over time with increased fuel economy so you can get more miles out of every gallon of gas.
