It is about time you replaced your Duramax injectors? These injectors are a very essential part of your car’s engine. They deliver fuel at the right time to ensure clean as well as efficient combustion. But, if you don’t maintain them properly, they can develop faults or become clogged, so you need to know how to spot the signs of a bad fuel injector and how to fix it.
Sometimes Duramax injectors can develop faults which impact on their performance or cause breakdowns. This can happen when they become clogged with debris, even though some mechanical and electrical issues can also affect the fuel injectors.
One of the common signs and symptoms associated with a faulty fuel injector is the check engine warning light, which appears on the dashboard. As soon as the fuel injector is not doing what it should (if it is adding too much or too little), this light will come on.
Even though there are a few different reasons why a check engine light can switch on, it could be down to a fuel injector. The engine control unit triggers the warning light when the fuel injector is delivering too much or too little fuel.
Another common sign that you need to have your Duramax injectors replaced is misfiring or vibrating engine. If your car misfires or there is a delay after you press the accelerator pedal, it is possible that you have a faulty fuel injector, most likely a clog or blockage in the nozzle. If the fuel injector is not able to deliver the dose of fuel called for by the engine control unit, the fuel-air mix in the combustion chamber will be off, something that can lead to misfiring or a sudden drop in acceleration. This is why it is very crucial for you to keep your car’s fuel injectors clean and free from blockages.
