As you are well aware it takes fuel to make your car go. Since 1990 all vehicles require a fuel injector. The fuel injector squirts fuel into your engine. Your Engine Control Unit tells the fuel injector precisely how much fuel to deliver, as well as the time to deliver.

Virtually all fuel injectors for gas engines are known as port fuel injectors because they deliver to a port just outside of the cylinder. The fuel pump provides pressure needed to squirt the right amount of fuel into the engine. A few automakers have introduced gas direct engine systems on some engines recently. These systems inject the gas directly into the cylinders under very high pressure. Even though this process is more complicated, direct engine technology promises greater fuel economy.

Your fuel injectors need to be operating properly in order for your car to run right. High temperatures and variation with gas quality cause fuel injectors to get fouled with wax, dirt, water, additives and carbon. Your Grand Prairie fuel injector can become partially clogged preventing it from delivering the proper amount of fuel at the correct pressure. When injectors are dirty the fuel doesn’t burn as efficiently resulting in poor fuel economy and loss of power. To prevent debris from accumulating, it is a smart decision to have your fuel filter changed often. By letting a Grand Prairie ASE Certified Technician add a fuel injector to your gas tank you could prevent issues further down the road.
