How To Tell If You Have Faulty or Dirty Fuel Injectors

Cars nowadays are built with thoughtful engineering and using durable materials. Even with better-performing automobiles, they require a proper level of maintenance. Vehicle parts go through wear and tear, and eventually need to be replaced. One example is the fuel injectors in cars. 


Fuel injectors are a part of a fuel delivery system, and they are the devices that spritz fuel for the engine to run. When the fuel injector is clogged or failing to work, you may notice the following symptoms:

Bad Odor

If you can smell fuel all the time while driving, it is a sign that you have a leak. Fuel leaks are scary because gasoline is flammable. Plus, it can be costly. Your fuel economy will be impacted with a faulty fuel injector, so be sure to repair your fuel injectors ASAP.

Engine Struggles

Your engine will lose a significant amount of power when the fuel injectors have gone bad. Your car might not accelerate as quickly or at all. Since your engine won’t combust as it should, you  may also experience misfires and stalling. The sooner you get your car to Rainer Automotive, the less you’ll have to worry about these problems. 

Dashboard Warning Light Comes On

Last but not least, you might see an appearance from the check engine light. When this warning comes on your dash, it means your car’s computer has detected an error related to the engine. This can happen when your vehicle can’t obtain the right fuel and air ratio. Luckily, you can count on the team at our auto repair shop to scan your car and translate the problem code for you.


If your vehicle is in need of fuel injection service or repairs, please do not hesitate to give our friendly team a call or visit soon. We’d be happy to repair your fuel injectors for you.
