Symptoms of a Bad Fuel Injector

Diagnosing engine problems yourself can be difficult, especially since many problems such as poor engine power, increased fuel consumption and higher emissions can have many causes. In some cases, however, a dirty or faulty fuel injector is to blame. (We know, we talk to customers with this issue every week.)

Even a small amount of carbon buildup or gunk in the injector nozzle can affect this spray and cause engine misfires, pre-ignition and other drivability issues. There are a few ways to diagnose a bad fuel injector that you can try at home, though, before you go to the hassle and expense of visiting a mechanic.
