Fuel injection system supplier Bosch has unveiled a new website designed to provide the information necessary to help visitors choose the proper diesel fuel injectors for their vehicles.
ChooseTheRightInjector.com offers in-depth information on a variety of key topics, including why injectors fail; the hazards of using non-authorized remanufactured injectors; and frequently asked questions
“Common rail engines are less forgiving of poor repair quality than conventional engines,” said Ross Sandercock, director of diesel products for Bosch Automotive Aftermarket North America. “Although there are many options for selecting rebuilt/remanufactured injectors that can save you money, there are also as many risks associated with choosing an injector from a non-authorized remanufacturer. Consumers and technicians need to know the risks and understand the choices they have in order to make an informed decision regarding diesel vehicle service and performance,” he said.
Choosing the wrong injector can lead to a number of issues, including:
- Loss of power
- Decrease in fuel economy
- Failure to operate after a short period of time
- Increased noise
- No start
- Engine damage
- Exhaust system damage
According to Sandercock, an injector from a non-authorized remanufacturer could cause an issue as simple (but expensive) as a decrease in fuel economy; but at worst may lead to catastrophic engine or exhaust system damage. One failed injector could destroy the entire exhaust system and lead to complete engine failure, he said.
ChooseTheRightInjector.com takes visitors through the most common injector failure scenarios, lists the symptoms of those failures, and offers helpful tips on how to avoid them. The site also includes links to:
- Informational brochures
