When it comes to squeezing out maximum fuel efficiency as well as power from your engine, properly working fuel injectors are an essential component to helping your vehicle run flawlessly. Eventually, however, like any part they do wear out. Fortunately, the selection of stock fuel injectors available on the market is wide; with a little research you can find replacement fuel injectors that are right for your car and at a price that is right for your wallet.
Before you go to the expense of replacing your current fuel injectors, you should first check your fuel filter to see if it is the culprit. If clogged, replace the fuel filter and keep changing it every 25,000 miles. Gas prices are at all time record high levels, but you should only use name brand gasolines containing fuel injection cleaner additives to ensure continued good performance.
If after performing the above maintenance your vehicle still isn’t running properly, one or more of your injectors may no longer be working. If you have determined that this is the case, you will need to replace the malfunctioning injector[s]. If you are seeking better performance, then an after market fuel injector such as an Accel is an excellent choice. If you elect to go the performance route, you must replace all of your fuel injectors at the same time.
One of the leading suppliers of stock fuel injectors is Bosch. In 1967, the German manufacturer introduced the first fuel injection system with a high-pressure electric fuel pump. Bosch is a leader in innovative fuel injection technology and design, as well as in superior, original equipment quality. Yes, many vehicles coming off of automobile assembly lines already come equipped with Bosch fuel injectors: they are simply that good.
Alternatively, Ford fuel injectors, Nissan fuel injectors, and those made by and for other automobile manufacturers are all quite good. They have to be, otherwise their cars would not be able to run!
Prices for fuel injectors are all over the place. It is a good idea to shop and compare before making your purchase. Reputable online suppliers can often give you the best prices; some will even include free shipping making shopping on the internet your best bet.
