Fuel Injection Repair and Service
Lowell's Auto Repair Provides Fuel Injection Repair and Services
Fuel injection refers to the method of delivering fuel into an internal combustion engine. In modern vehicles, instead of a carburetor, fuel is delivered through a series of electronically controlled injectors that spray a fine mist of fuel directly into the engine’s combustion chamber.
Fuel injection systems provide more precise control over the amount of fuel delivered to the engine, leading to improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions. They also allow for better performance, as the fuel delivery can be optimized based on the engine’s specific needs at any given moment.
We may refer to fuel injection when discussing issues with your vehicle’s fuel system, such as clogged injectors, fuel pressure problems, or malfunctioning sensors that affect the amount of fuel delivered to the engine.
When is it time to address my Fuel Injection?
Fuel injection systems typically don’t require as much maintenance as carbureted systems, but they still need to be inspected and serviced periodically to ensure they’re operating properly.
Some common signs that your fuel injection system may need to be serviced or repaired include:
Reduced fuel efficiency: If you notice that your vehicle is using more fuel than usual, it could be a sign that the fuel injection system is not delivering the proper amount of fuel to the engine.
Engine misfires: If you experience engine misfires, where the engine stumbles or runs unevenly, it could be a sign that one or more of the fuel injectors is clogged or malfunctioning.
Rough idling: If the engine is running rough at idle, it could be a sign that the fuel injection system is not delivering the proper amount of fuel to the engine.
Engine hesitation or sluggishness: If the engine is hesitating or feels sluggish when you accelerate, it could be a sign that the fuel injection system is not delivering enough fuel to the engine.
If you experience any of these symptoms, it’s a good idea to have your fuel injection system inspected and serviced by one of our qualified mechanics. Regular maintenance, such as fuel filter replacement, can also help keep your fuel injection system in good working condition.
