The gasoline and diesel injectors ensure that the fuel is injected into the combustion chamber of the cylinder with the right fuel/air mixture and at the correct time. If problems arise with the injectors, you will notice that in the performance of your engine. This means it’s time to clean them. But how to clean fuel injectors without removing them? First the difference between the diesel and gasoline injector and how problems arise with the fuel injector.
What is the difference between a diesel and gasoline injector?
Both injectors inject the fuel into the combustion chamber of the cylinder. The difference is in the ignition. In a petrol engine the petrol is first injected into the cylinder through the injector, after which it mixes with the air inside the cylinder. It is then compressed and ignited with an electric spark from a spark plug. In a diesel engine, the diesel is injected into the cylinder under high pressure and then it is mixed with air. This mixture is compressed to such high pressure that the temperature rises and a spontaneous ignition follows.
How do problems with the injectors start?
Even though there is only fuel coming through the injectors, the injector’s spray pattern can become inefficient because of deposits. The fuel passes through a filter, but tiny particles can always pass through it. This can lead to clogging of the injectors.
Replace or clean injectors?
A bad performing engine due to problems with the injectors does not always have to lead to replacement of the injectors. There can also be dirt in the injectors as mentioned, these are easy to clean with an effective additive for injectors. So you can clean the fuel injectors without removing them.
