What Are the Signs of Bad Fuel Injectors?

Most modern cars use fuel injectors in place of carburetors, commonly used in the past. Fuel injectors play a vital role in your car's daily performance. As the name suggests, the components' primary function is to deliver fuel into engine cylinders while maintaining all relevant parameters (correct timing, controlled fuel atomization and controlled fuel volume). Below are a few signs you have bad fuel injectors.

1. The Car Sounds Rough While on Idle

Bad fuel injectors can interfere with the delicate balance of air and fuel making its way into the engine. The result is a crackling engine while on idle. If your car is vibrating more than it did before, it's time to check your fuel injectors.

2. Your Cars Starts Consuming More Gas Than Before

If you notice, your car is spending more fuel than it should, according to the manufacturer's guide. Depending on how long you have had your car, you can tell if there are any changes in fuel consumption. The longer you have had your car, the better you will get at estimating fuel consumption off the top of your head/

3. Your Car Fails to Start

Fuel injectors are responsible for getting your engine the perfect ratio of fuel and air it needs to get started and run smoothly. If your car has bad fuel injectors, your engine may not get any of these components when you start your vehicle. Without fuel getting to the engine cylinders, your car will not start.

4. If Your RPMS Needle Becomes shaky

Lousy fuel injectors will make the needle in your tachometer start to act out. When you start the car, you may notice increasingly radical motions from 0 to 60. You can notice this change happen gradually, sometimes even moving without prompt. If your vehicle has any of these symptoms, it is time to take it into the shop for cleaning and general inspection.
