If your car is experiencing problems with the engine, such as misfiring, irregular power, decreased gas mileage or has fuel scent? These can all be signs that your fuel injector is broken or has a leak and needs replacement.
Simply put, in order for the engine to run properly, it needs oxygen and fuel. The oxygen supply comes from the air around the engine, and the fuel is taken from the gasoline tank. The fuel injector is the part that helps control the right amount of gasoline applied to the engine since it is constantly changing. Because the levels of oxygen supplied to the engine fluctuate, the gas must match in order for it to run efficiently and not waste any gasoline. This is why the job of the fuel injector is very important, and if it is malfunctioning can quickly become problem. A few common reasons why fuel injectors cause issues are that they are clogged or dirty, do not close or open, or they have a leak.

Check Engine Light
At Davies Auto Care, we understand how frustrating or frightening it can be to have your check engine light come on, which is why we want to share the most common reasons this happens. If your check engine light comes on, it is never a good feeling because you know something is wrong that needs to be examined and fixed. There can be a number of reasons large to small that can be the cause, such as a loose gas cap or a bigger issue like a broken catalytic converter.
Some people confuse the service requirement light with the check engine light, but they are very different, as the first only indicates a regular maintenance check up like an oil change, whereas the latter shows that your car is in trouble. The light varies in color from orange to yellow. If it is flashing that means there is a much more serious problem, like a misfire that can overheat the engine and creates a fire hazard.
So don’t ignore your check engine light. It’s there for a reason! These lights were installed to protect your car from malfunctioning and damage. If the check engine light comes on and it is steady rather than flashing, some people know it isn’t an emergency and will choose to ignore it for fear of a costly bill; however, not getting it checked by a mechanic can cause a much more expensive problem in the future. It’s better to be safe and have your car examined before a greater issue arises. But before rushing into the mechanic, you can look to see if your gas cap is tightened properly since that is a common cause.
