4 Common Diesel Fuel Injection Pump
4/23/2018 4:16 PM  |  Cindy
Fuel injection pump performance is closely tied to engine performance. If your vehicle has a fuel delivery issue, it will literally starve to death. Fuel injection problems, therefore, are one of the most pressing engine issues to deal with. Whether you’ve experienced fuel injector failure or not, it helps to understand the fuel injector pump, how it relates to engine performance, and also how diesel fuel injection pumps differ from traditional gasoline-powered units. view more»
Injector wars: piezo vs. solenoid
4/18/2018 2:47 PM  |  Cindy
Rival diesel fuel-injector suppliers are fighting a technology duel to win new business as tougher EU emissions rules take effect before the end of the decade. German suppliers Robert Bosch and Siemens VDO Automotive and Italy’s Magneti Marelli say injectors using piezo technology are the only way that larger diesel engines can meet future Euro 5 rules. But rival Delphi says it can improve the performance of conventional solenoid – electromagnetic – injectors enough to avoid investing in piezo injectors. view more»

What Are The Different Types of Fuel Injection?
4/13/2018 10:58 AM  |  Cindy
The earliest and simplest type of fuel injection, single-point simply replaces the carburetor with one or two fuel-injector nozzles in the throttle body, which is the throat of the engine’s air intake manifold. For some automakers, single-point injection was a stepping stone to the more complex multipoint system. Though not as precise as the systems that have followed, TBI meters fuel with better control than a carburetor and is less expensive and easier to service. view more»
2018 Ford F-150 Diesel: The Best-Selling Pickup Gets a Power Stroke
4/11/2018 2:31 PM  |  Cindy
Ford has shaped its heavy-duty-truck legacy on the brute strength of its Power Stroke diesel V-8s, but the automaker has never made a serious effort to extend that reputation to its best-selling F-150 half-ton pickup. Whether because of disappointing market research, financial and engineering concerns, limited manufacturing capacity, or possibly lingering memories of General Motors’ misunderstood diesel 6.2-liter V-8 from the early 1980s, it has taken until now for the light-duty F-series to bask in the Blue Oval’s compression-ignition glory. view more»
6.0L Ford Fuel Injectors
4/10/2018 10:58 AM  |  Cindy
We all know that the Ford 6.0L Ford Powerstroke Diesel has had all kinds of issues; Blown Head Gaskets, Plugged Oil Coolers, Fried FICM’s, Cracked EGR Coolers, and the list goes on and on. There are all kinds of theories out there as to why these injectors fail and what can be done to make them last longer. There are additives, special oils, and so on. If you have tried all these magic formulas and your injectors are just too far gone to save them, you’ve likely decided you are going to go ahead and buy injectors for your truck. Now the question is which brand of injectors do you buy? You research, and there again you have all kinds of options, suggestions and theories. view more»
Supercritical Fuel Injection

Researchers in New York have demonstrated a supercritical diesel fuel-injection system that can reduce engine emissions by 80 percent and increase overall efficiency by 10 percent. Going supercritical: This laboratory equipment is being used to study supercritical diesel fuel. view more»
Diesel Engine Injector Diagnosis
4/4/2018 10:27 AM  |  Cindy
A phrase that customers often use is, “This is a diesel engine; the problem should be easy to diagnose.” The most accurate part of that statement is that it is a diesel engine. Certainly, there are some common repairs needed on specific engines that are easy to do, but that doesn’t mean everything else will be easy to diagnose. Owners often think that because diesel engines are now computer-controlled, the technician should be able to hook up a scan tool and immediately see what is going on. view more»
Fuel Injector Servicing
4/2/2018 10:30 AM  |  Cindy
An engine will not perform at its best without the proper air/fuel mixture.Fuel Injector Cross Section The fuel system of a modern computer-controlled fuel injected engine is so reliable that it seems to be almost maintenance free, but these modern fuel injected engines have fuel injectors that become flow restricted or “dirty” with use. When supplying a customer with a new set of fuel injectors, flow check them to make sure they are all flowing within 2-3% of one another. If the flow rate varies by too much from injector to injector, the engine will cause drive-ability ­problems. As the fuel injectors get dirty, there will be a gradual loss of drive-ability and power. Not all injectors will get dirty at the same rate, so drive-ability can be lost in this way too. view more»
