FUEL INJECTOR CLEANING FAQS
Fuel Injector Cleaning FAQs
What is referred as a re-manufactured or rebuilt fuel injector?
Remanufactured or Rebuilt is an industry term for refurbishing a fuel injector. The inner workings of the injector are ultrasonically cleaned while pulsing in the second stage bath. Refurbished, a better term means all removable part such as o rings, retainers and caps and seals are replaced.
Do you disassemble the fuel injector while refurbishing?
No, we do not disassemble the fuel injector during service. A fuel injector is a sealed unit and cannot be taken apart so the coil along with the nozzle valve will stay intact.
What is the cost of refurbishing a fuel injector?
Most common top feed fuel injectors can be brought back to like new condition for $20.00 per injector. Other injectors such as hose feed and side feed require more labor and as a result will cost a bit more. GDI injectors that require certain seals to be replaced along with the sophisticated flow bench used for testing direct injection units would also be a little higher. The overall cost is a fraction of replacement with a new injector.
How long does the cleaning process take and when will my Injectors be returned?
Turn-around time depends on several factors, including the shipping method you selected, the type of fuel injector and the current work load in the shop. In most cases it's 24/48 hours. Call us for the current Turn-Around times. We also post turn-around times on Facebook & Twitter.
Can I send my injectors in for service if they are still on the fuel rail?
No. we do not accept fuel injectors that are still attached to the rail. Please remove your injectors from the rail and leave all o-rings, spacers and grommets on for proper replacement.
