You depend on your car or truck to do the job efficiently, every day. That's why you need regular service on your diesel fuel injection system. When diesel injectors go bad, you'll get less power, worse milage and maybe trouble starting up. The injector could be clogged or it might be defective due to age or wear. Eventually. it might be time to repair or completely one or more injectors.
Signs of a clogged injector: Reduced engine performance, poor fuel economy, difficult starting vehicle. How to test: 1 - turn on your engine, place the end of a long screwdriver or metal rod against an injector, and then putting your ear to the far end. If you hear clicking traveling up through the rod, then the injector is working. 2 - use ohm meter or test light that will enable you to touch each injector to see if it is functioning. 3 - do a rough temperature check. Start the cold engine, and then flick a little water on each cylinder to see if it burns off. A cold cylinder should be easy to spot as the functioning cylinders warm up.
If you have a clogged fuel injector, you have options. You could try to clean your injectors yourself with a diesel fuel injection cleaner. However, if the injectors are badly clogged, this might not work. Injection cleaners are better for preventing clogging than for cleaning out existing blockages. If that doesn't fix the problem, another option is to remove it, take it apart, and clean it. This is a job best handled in a shop, by an experienced professional. If parts get damaged or aren't put together correctly, the injector will not function. If you live in Rancho Cordova, bring us your vehicle, and if needed, we'll repair or replace it.
