What Are Fuel Injectors?

If you're not in tune with automotive parts, you have probably never heard of fuel injectors. These components work together with your fuel filter and pump to ensure your engine gets a balanced air and fuel mixture. To be specific, the injectors are in charge of spraying the clean fuel into the intake manifold before it gets compressed and burned to power your car engine.


Over time, the fuel injectors can get dirty, wear down, and become inefficient. As a result, you may notice poor engine performance and bad mileage. To combat these problems, you may have to get them cleaned (or replaced) so that you can go back to smooth cruising.


Knowing the symptoms of worn fuel injectors can help you detect them early on and prevent damaging your engine. Below are the several signs that you need fuel injector repairs:

Engine Misfires

This may be a symptom of dirty injectors causing an imbalance between the fuel and air that is being burned. And it could send vibrations throughout the car. 

Rough Idling

If your car shakes at stops in traffic, you definitely have a problem on your hands. The technicians at Alma Tire Service would gladly take a look at your fuel injectors.

Jumpy RPM Needle 

Lousy fuel injectors can cause the needle on the tachometer to move unpredictably. It will indicate changes in RPMs even if you're not changing gears.

Problems Starting Car

If your fuel injectors aren't delivering gas to their corresponding cylinders, your engine won't get a balanced air to fuel ratio. In severe cases, your faulty injectors can lead to engine failure.

Poor Mileage

This may be one of the first symptoms you experience with failing fuel injectors. If you want to improve your MPG, you should get your injectors serviced ASAP.
