DD15/DD16 Common Rail Injector failure symptoms usually include:

  1. Reduced Power

  2. Decreased Fuel Economy

  3. Increased Emissions

A very common problem we see is poor fuel filtration. Poor filtration or fuel quality can cause ball seat erosion on your injector, which can cause starting, idling or smoking issues.

Common Rail Fuel Injector Installation Tips:

Before installing the new injector, check the fuel line for any damage. Also make sure there is no debris or oil residue left from the previous injector. 

The o rings are included. You will need to replace the hold down bolts, which are not included with the injector. 

During install, make sure you seat the injector in the cylinder head and align it between the two springs - you want the injector to be perfectly aligned with the hole that the fuel line will go in. Wait to torque it until you have made sure it is perfectly aligned.

Always address any problems you find as soon as possible, because they can be dangerous once the engine is hot.
