When Does Your Fuel Injector Need to Be Replaced?

There are two types of fuel injection systems; the electronic fuel injection system (EFI) and the constant inject system (CFI). Both systems should be replaced between 80,000 and 100,000 miles, as the internal mechanics such as the needle seats, plungers, and springs will begin to weaken. The injector will then send too much or too little fuel into the engine causing it to either flood or starve itself.

When a fuel injection system fails, it causes a number of problems with your vehicle’s performance. Symptoms to look out for that indicate your fuel injector might be failing include:

  • Hard starting
  • Reduced fuel economy
  • Rough idling
  • Fuel smell inside the car
  • Loss of power during acceleration
  • Noticeably reduced performance in warm weather

Cleaning most fuel injectors can help avoid these problems for a while, but replacement is inevitable. Using higher quality fuels also helps to prolong the life of the system. Keep your car on the road longer by replacing your fuel injection system regularly at Cox Mazda. Our service department is open six days a week, Monday through Saturday to serve you.
