4 Signs Your Diesel Fuel Injectors Need Replacing

Is your vehicle driving with lack of power, misfiring and not running right? This may be a sign your Diesel Fuel Injectors are worn and need to be replaced. A contaminated fuel injection system or worn fuel injector can often supply the incorrect amount of fuel to the engine resulting in poor performance.

What are signs of worn injectors?

1. Misfiring
Do you find your vehicle misfiring on ignition? Once again, this could be due to the fuel injector either needing a thorough clean in case it is clogged, or an intermittent failure to open.

2. Fluctuating Power
 If your vehicle is revving inconsistently or your RPM gauge is up and down, this may be a sign your fuel injector needs a clean. A contaminated fuel injection system or worn fuel injector can often supply inconsistent amounts of fuel to the engine, resulting in poor performance.

3. Fuel Odors
The smell of diesel fuel means you most likely have a leak. This may be due to a crack in an injector seal, or the result of a valve not closing correctly

4. Reduced Fuel Economy
If you notice a sudden and ongoing decrease in your fuel economy, this could be due to worn injectors. Worn injectors burn more fuel to achieve the required performance output.
