Fuel injector cleaning service cleans fuel injectors in order to keep a person’s vehicle running efficiently. Over time the use of low octane and low quality fuels will cause buildup on the injectors and can cause them to become clogged. When the engine is turned off there is still fuel on the end of the fuel injectors. The fuel will evaporate on its own but leaves behind small particles which become solid. This process occurs every time the engine is turned off slowly causing buildup on the injectors.
The use of high quality fuels with detergents can help slow the process of buildup on the fuel injectors, but eventually a person will need to use a fuel injector cleaning service if they keep their vehicle for a long period of time. Signs that the fuel injectors may need to be cleaned include decreased gas mileage, increased fuel consumption, rough idling engine and loss of power when accelerating. When these problems are noticed and not resolved, it can lead to further complications and damage to the fuel injection system.
Fuel injection system
A fuel injection system consists of several components hooked into a mini-computer called an engine control module. The mini-computer regulates the amount of oxygen and fuel mixed in the engine to provide power, low emissions and peak fuel efficiency for the vehicle. A fuel injector cleaning service can run diagnostics to confirm the system is operating correctly. The basic parts of a fuel injector include a fuel filter, valve spring, plunger, nozzle tip, solenoid and electrical plug which are all wrapped in an injector casing.
The engine control module controls the amount of pressurized fuel being forced through the injector by turning the injector on and off. When the injector is turned on the valve spring and plunger open and allow the fuel to flow through the injector. It is possible for an injector to become stuck closed if dirt or other larger particles get into the system or to be stuck partially open which allows fuel to leak out. The injector casing can also become cracked and damaged from extreme temperature changes over a period of time. A fuel injector cleaning service which offers off the car injector cleaning can check for these problems. Even with maintenance fuel injectors can need cleaning services.
Off the car injector cleaning
Off the car injector cleaning from a fuel injector cleaning service is where the fuel injectors are removed from the vehicle and offers the best type of cleaning available. Quick change oil shops, car dealerships and some mechanics may offer fuel injector cleaning but this service uses a liquid chemical and is forced through the system through the fuel rail and does not involve removing the injectors and physically inspecting each one.
Injector RX, provides professional fuel injector cleaning service as well as testing of injector flow rates. Injectors are inspected for cracks and leaks, and then tested to check flow rate, spray pattern and spring coil resistance. Injector RX then cleans the injectors using a biodegradable cleaner which is safe for the environment. Any parts pintle caps and O-rings are replaced and the tests repeated.
