Fuel injectors are devices used to meter and dispense the appropriate amount of fuel necessary to run an engine. There are different types of injector systems; throttle body, multi-point, sequential, direct, and others. Fuel injectors run on systems that operate under high pressure and precise timing to provide the engine with adequate fuel to operate. The high pressure forces fuel through a very small opening which atomizes the fuel, basically turning it into a mist that can easily burn once inside the combustion chamber.
Fuel injectors can fail in a few ways, but the most common is for them to become clogged by contaminants in the fuel. As previously mentioned, injectors use very small openings to atomize fuel. Common sense says any foreign materials in the fuel can and do clog these openings up! The same contaminants, as well as trace amounts of water, can wear at the injector seals and mechanical components as well. Using higher quality gasoline and keeping the fuel system in peak operating condition are essential to preserving the life of fuel injectors!
We highly recommend having professional, certified automotive technicians service your fuel system. With flammable substances under high pressure and the risk of fire if improperly installed, you don't want to take any chances when it comes to your fuel injectors.
