Fuel injectors are an essential engine component found in the majority of vehicles in Reno and Sparks. Your engine control computer tells the injector how much fuel to deliver as well as the precise time it should be delivered. This occurs thousands of times a minute in every single fuel-injected vehicles on the road.
Most fuel injectors for gas engines are known in the Reno and Sparks automotive community as port fuel injectors because they deliver the fuel to a port just outside the cylinder. The fuel pump is a mechanism that delivers fuel from your gas tank to your engine.
There are newer models introduced to the marketplace which are equipped with fuel direct injection systems. These systems allow direct injection of fuel straight into the cylinder and make for vehicles that allow for a better fuel economy, more power, and fewer emissions.
High temperatures under your vehicle’s hood and variations in our local gas quality cause fuel injectors to be fouled with wax, dirt, water, additives, and carbon. Eventually, fuel injectors become clogged and prevent fuel delivery at the proper pressure.
Make sure to perform or have your friendly technician at Wayne’s Automotive Center check these components at regular intervals to ensure al fuel system components are optimal and you spend less on gas and save yourself from an on-the-road breakdown.
