Diesel Injection Components: Coming To Terms With The Common Rail Diesel Injection System Is Not An Easy Task

For some time now, most of the development in diesel technology has been aimed toward making the engines environmentally friendly. But as diesel engines have become cleaner, the power levels have also increased. This is somewhat backward to what the country went through in the 1970s with gasoline engines.

What Causes Direct Fuel Injectors To Clog?

In the case of a direct fuel injector where the tip is exposed to the combustion event, carbon can stick to the nozzle and cause a bad spray pattern, because carbon searches for other carbon.

In the U.S., the quality of the fuel we put into our vehicles is very high. By the time it travels through the fill neck, it has been filtered twice at the station. Before it gets to the fuel rail, it has been filtered by a sock in the tank and a filter under the car. So why do direct and port fuel injectors still become clogged or have spray pattern problems? The answer involves a little bit of chemistry and a lot of heat.
