Fuel Injection Services – Diesel Cars
All diesel cars can have problems with water being present in the diesel fuel. The newer diesel cars have a common rail injection system which injects the diesel through the injectors at extremely high pressures. If any water is present in the fuel tank of a common rail diesel vehicle, serious damage can occur to the injectors resulting in a very expensive car repair. Another problem with common rail diesel cars is that the inlet manifold blocks up on some vehicles.
A diesel fuel injection service can help to prevent these problems from occurring.
A diesel injection service consists of:
- the fuel filter is changed
- fuel injector cleaner is added through the fuel filter when the engine is running
- the inlet manifold is cleaned with a EGR spray while the engine is running.
For most diesel cars, you can add a water separating filter for extra protection from water. If you ever suspect that your car has water contamination, under no circumstances should you drive the car until a car mechanic has removed all the water from the fuel system.
