What is a fuel injector?

In Automotive Diagnostics by HomeTowne Auto Repair & Tire

This week, a 2008 Jeep Wrangler was brought to HomeTowne Auto Repair & Tire.

The check engine light was on, and it had a fuel injector code.

Fuel injectors send fuel into the cylinder, allowing your vehicle’s engine to run. 

To reach them, we needed to remove the intake manifold. On this Jeep Wrangler, the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) tube runs from the valve on top of the intake.

While working on the vehicle, we realized that a fuel injector was out of speculation. We will need to install new injectors and recheck it.

The check engine light turning on isn’t the only sign that the fuel injectors aren’t working correctly. You may also notice the vehicle is riding rough and lacking power.
