Is It Dangerous to Drive With a Faulty Fuel Injector?

While fuel injector problems usually give warning, driving your vehicle for a long time with a clogged or faulty fuel injector can cause problems. At Rislone, we always advise customers to closely monitor how their engine is performing as a guide to determine if something might be wrong with their fuel system. Things such as:

  • Decreased engine performance and power
  • Increased fuel consumption
  • A noticeable increase in tailpipe smoke and emissions
  • Rough idle and hesitation during acceleration

These are all potential signs that your fuel injectors are faulty or need cleaning. Before you take your vehicle to a mechanic for injector cleaning or replacement, always try a bottle of Rislone Fuel System Treatment. In most cases, that’s all it takes to get your fuel injectors running properly again. Our proven formulas for gas and diesel engines remove carbon buildup and gunk and allow your injectors to spray fuel as they’re meant to.

What If My Fuel Injector Is Faulty?

If you have one or more faulty fuel injectors — due to wear or mechanical or electrical issues, driving for a long time can cause several problems:

  • Stalling or failure for your car to start
  • Flooding of your engine
  • Pre-ignition of your fuel

Left too long, a faulty fuel injector can cause serious engine damage that requires major repair. Avoid the cost and hassle by using Rislone Gasoline Fuel System Treatment or Diesel Fuel System Treatment every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, depending on the type of driving you do. You’ll want to use it every 3,000 miles if you drive short distances, in cold weather or in stop-and-go traffic. Fuel injector problems can eventually lead to a breakdown, or in extreme cases, an accident if your engine fails while traveling at speed on the highway. Be sure to treat the problem before that happens.
