Benefits of Replacing Your Fuel Injectors
Posted on September 24 2021
Being on the open road listening to your diesel rumble can be therapeutic for many drivers. The freedom, the open air, feeling the torque running through the seat of your pants—it's an excellent way to clear one’s mind and relax. As relaxing as it can be, it can also carry the stress of breaking down on the side of the road.
Reliability is a key factor to any part on your vehicle. While most injectors are reliable for tens—and often hundreds of thousands of miles, they do wear out. What happens when your fuel injectors begin to wear? Your smooth-running diesel might start to hiccup and stutter down the road, or worse. The efficiency and performance of the vehicle suffers as injectors wear down. Luckily, Dr Performance offers high quality replacement injectors to keep your truck running like new. Replacing your injectors isn't just maintenance; here are the benefits of replacing your vehicle's fuel injectors.
Better Overall Truck Health
One of the best benefits of replacing your fuel injectors is that it decreases engine-related vehicle breakdowns. It prevents excessive component wear by balancing each cylinder's fuel delivery. This will cause the stresses of the engine to be more evenly distributed throughout the entire engine block. Balanced injectors will increase engine efficiency and MPG. Not only does it help the reliability of the vehicle, but also its longevity. You will decrease truck maintenance costs over the life of the vehicle.
Decrease Injector Failure
As much as people don’t want to admit it, fuel injectors will eventually become worn out. It’s inevitable. Injectors lose their seals over time, until the point of where the injection pump won't be able to keep up with the leak-by. Excessive leak-by causes fuel pressure to drop, which eventually causes poor fuel mileage and/or loss of power.
So, be sure to check your injectors regularly. If replacement is needed, it will increase resistance and helps with maintaining functionality.
Prevent Turbo Issues
Over time vehicles accumulate clogs and excess carbon. Old fuel injectors may cause additional fuel to drip into the cylinder with the potential to cause damage due to unburnt fuel being introduced. Burning that extra fuel causes soot to build up much faster, which might cause your turbo to have trouble spooling up.
