Signs of Faulty Fuel Injectors

Brian Bates

The fuel injectors are an essential component of your car's engine or fuel system. These parts are accountable for supplying fuel to the engine in precise amounts to ensure optimal performance. Over time, fuel injectors can wear out and alter the vehicle's performance. As a vehicle owner, you should be responsible for picking up signs if they go bad.

Signs of Faulty Fuel Injectors

Poor Performance
One of the most obvious signs of bad fuel injectors is poor performance. If your automobile hesitates or stalls, it could be a sign that your fuel injectors are clogged or malfunctioning. Your engine may run rough.

Increased Fuel Consumption
If you notice that your car is using more fuel than usual, it could be a sign that your fuel injectors are not delivering fuel efficiently. This can also lead to increased emissions.

Engine Misfire
Another common symptom of lousy fuel injectors is an engine misfire. When the fuel injector fails to deliver the right amount of fuel to the motor, you may feel your engine misfire.

Check Engine Light
If your car's check engine light comes on, it could indicate that your fuel injectors are due for a replacement. A variety of issues can trigger the check engine light, but one common cause is a problem with the fuel injectors.

Rough Idle
Your vehicle shouldn't idle roughly if the engine is in good shape. Therefore, if your car shakes or vibrates while at a stop, please have a professional check your fuel injectors.

If you notice any of the above signs, please take your vehicle to South Park Tire & Auto Center to inspect and service your fuel injectors.
