Fuel injectors are a critical component in every car. For those who don’t know what a fuel injector does, it basically supplies fuel from the fuel tank to the combustion engine. But for the car’s economy and optimal performance, it is essential that the fuel injector must transfer the right amount of fuel to the engine. With advancements in technology, this volume of fuel that the fuel injector pumps into the engine is regulated by the Engine Control Unit (ECU) and the various input sensors that form part of this system.
Over time, depending on the usage of the car, the fuel injector may get corroded or blocked due to some fuel deposits. If such is the case, then you may encounter any of the following situations:
- The car uses more fuel than normal for same distances, in other words, its fuel efficiency goes down
- Poor acceleration
- The engine backfires
- The car does not start easily
