If your Cummins diesel engine just isn't performing like it should, you might have problems with your fuel system.
Well-functioning injectors are critical in keeping your engine running smoothly, and it's possible that injector problems can cause other kinds of engine failures.
When you need to take care of fuel injector problems, we know you want it done right.
That's why we've put together a list of common fuel injector failure symptoms, as well as some common causes.
Don't let fuel injector problems slow down your Cummins ISC or ISB!
There are a few key symptoms that can indicate fuel injector failure. These can include:
While these symptoms can point to fuel injector problems, they also might indicate a larger issue in your engine.
Poor idling, for example, might be because of corrosion on your injectors. In this case, there might be water contaminating your fuel, causing other problems in your engine.
If you notice these symptoms, it's best to evaluate whether or not new injectors can help solve your issue.
Even if you've pinpointed the source of your diesel engine failure, it's important to find out if there's a larger cause. This can help prevent the issue from recurring.
There are a few common causes of fuel injector failure that are good to watch out for. They can include:
Believe it or not, the quality of your fuel has a direct impact on injector performance. Poor quality or contaminated fuel can lead to some serious problems.
Avoid cheap fill up locations if you can. In these places, the fuel might sit for a long time, which leads to contamination.
It's better to fill up at locations that move large amounts of fuel, where it doesn't have a chance to sit for long periods of time.
Pay attention to your engine's operating conditions, as some will negatively affect your injectors.
These include short runs, excessive idling, light engine loadings, and cool operating. They can actually cause deposit problems in different areas of your engine, like the combustion chamber, exhaust spaces, turbocharger, and DPF filter.
High pressure and high temperatures in your system can actually degrade your fuel, leaving deposits in the pumps and injectors. This will then lower the lubricating ability of your fuel.
