If you have Duramax injectors in your diesel truck, you need to know what to do in order to keep them in good shape. Fuel injectors spray fuel into a vehicle’s engine using electronic controlled valves, which are capable of opening and closing many times a second. They have an atomizing nozzle that distributes the petrol or diesel evenly, for optimum combustion and efficiency. The injectors are a replacement for the old carburetor system, because they help engines run with greater fuel efficiency and also help to reduce emissions.
You need to know the signs of a bad or faulty Duramax injectors in order to know the right action to take. One of the common signs is a rough idle. If you have noticed that your truck’s idle noise has changed and feels rougher, it is possible that the fuel injectors may not be delivering fuel as they should. This is normally down to the injector nozzles being clogged with particles, which interfere with the atomization as well as spray of the fuel. There are several faults that can cause a rough idle noise, including a dirty air filter and a bad spark plug, but clogged injectors are one of the most common reasons for this.
Another sign of faulty Duramax injectors is engine stalling. If you have noticed that your randomly stalls or cuts out without you doing anything to cause it, it could be due to a lack of fuel reaching the engine from the injectors. If very little fuel is reaching the combustion chamber, the engine control unit will stop the engine, causing a stall. Stalling of the engine as a result of a failed injector usually happen when the nozzles are badly blocked or when there is a fuel leak where the injector connects with the fuel lines.
