What does a Fuel Injector do?

The fuel injectors are part of the fuel supply system of the engine (provided it is a petrol engine), they usually inject the fuel directly into the cylinders, but in some cars the injectors are situated in the inlet manifold. The injectors diffuse the fuel, which then mixes with the air being let into the engine by the inlet valves and, in turn, the spark plugs will ignite the mixture to combust.

What does a fuel injector replacement involve?

  • Mechanic will read the ECU for possible fault codes related to the fuel system.
  • Mechanic will inspect the fuel supply system and the fuel injectors.
  • If necessary, the mechanic will replace the faulty fuel injector.
  • Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced.
  • Mechanic will inspect the fuel supply system again for any leaks and test drive the car.
  • Mechanic will make adjustments if necessary.

Can I do a fuel injector replacement myself?

  • When there is a strong smell of fuel in the engine bay.
  • When the car's fuel consumption is higher than usual.

How often should I replace a fuel injector?

Over time, the fuel injectors can be affected by dirty fuel which will mean that the injectors can clog up. In turn the injectors will not be able to diffuse the fuel optimally. In most cases it means that the fuel lines or fuel tank have started to corrode. Alternatively, it can be that the fuel filter has become ineffective, not filtering out debris as it should. All of this leads to engine misfires and therefore an engine that does not run smoothly.

Should you experience problems with the fuel supply, then it is advisable to have the fuel supply system and the fuel injectors inspected and, if necessary, have the fuel injectors replaced. Seeing that the fuel injectors are especially prone to deterioration over time they should always be replaced as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.

Yes, if there's visible leak on a fuel injector can lead to an MOT failure. Any leaks in the fuel system will normally lead to an MOT failure, and hence it is possible the same can happen for an injector. However, injectors are usually hidden beneath engine covers which are not removed during an MOT so the chances of an MOT tester being able establish a visible leak with the injectors is small. That said, an issue with an injector will have an impact on engine performance and will likely result in excess emissions, which can also lead to an MOT failure. If you have a faulty injector it is imperative to get it checked and fixed as soon as possible by a professional mechanic. A fuel leak is a fire hazard and can be dangerous.

Yes, in certain cases it can be worth replacing all the fuel injectors at once. Many times an issue with one injector will likely mean that the others will be on their way out too, provided they were all instaleld at the same time. Replacing them all at once therefore can save hassle and money, as if the others go as well in future you'll have to pay for the labour again. That said, many fuel injectors can be very expensive so it's worth weighing up whether the potential money saved in labour outweighs the cost of a whole set of new or refurbished injectors.

How much does it cost to fix a fuel injector?

Can you replace just 1 fuel injector?

Often replacing 1 injector may turn out more expensive in the long run. It's likely other injectors will have deteriorated at the same rate as well requiring further replacements in due course as well, meaning that you'll have to pay for the same labour again. However, this will depend also on the cost of the injectors which can be very expensive, you will need to weigh up whether replacing just 1 injector is worth the risk in the long run.
