You depend on your car or truck to run efficiently. That's why you need regular service on your diesel fuel injection system. When diesel injectors start to fail, it delivers less power, lower miles-per-gallon and maybe rough starting. The injectors could be clogged or they might be degraded due to age or wear. Eventually, it's time to repair or completely one or more injectors.
Signs of a clogged injector include: reduced engine performance, poor fuel economy, difficulty when starting your vehicle. A simple test: 1 - turn on your engine, place the end of a long screwdriver or metal rod against an injector, and then put your ear to the other end. If you hear clicking traveling up through the rod, then the injector is working. 2 - use an ohm meter or test light that will enable you to touch each injector to see if it is getting electrical current. 3 - do a rough temperature check. Start the cold engine, and then flick a few drops of water on each cylinder to see if it burns off. A cold cylinder should be easy to spot as the functioning cylinders warm up.
If a fuel injector is clogged, there are options. You could try to clean your injectors yourself with a diesel fuel injector cleaner, but if the injectors are badly clogged, this might not do the job. Injector cleaners are better at preventing clogging than for cleaning out established blockages. If that doesn't fix the problem, another option is to pull the injector, take it apart, and clean it by hand. This is a job best done by a shop with an experienced professionals.
