Get Fuel Injector Problems diagnosed and fixed with Who Can Fix My Car.
Very helpful and a good price
Good service and amazing work.
Fabulous service and kept up to date step by step . Collected and delivered car back to me .
I am so impressed with Patrick and his garage. Patrick is so professional and reliable. He turned up to collect my car when he said he would and did the same when returning it. This is such a great service to offer, as it takes the hassle out of getting the car to the garage. He even went the extra mile in getting me a replacement wheel nut security lock to do the job when my original one wasn’t in the car, as it should be. He didn’t charge any extra labour for this, as he could sense I was anxious it wasn’t there. He simply sorted it and am so appreciative of that., I’ll certainly be using this garage again and can’t speak highly enough of Patrick. Very knowledgeable, professional and friendly approach.
Very quick response and I got my car back on the same day. Very friendly and helpful. I would recommend and use again.

David was very helpful and collected my car at work. The engineer called during the day to update me and Catriona was excellent with the customer service.

Lee is the best mobile mechanic I have ever found. His work is top notch and is very reasonably priced. The final payment was more than anticipated because he was successful in isolating and correcting various faults that were not immediately apparent. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who falls within his service range. One of his best qualities is that he always answers his mobile phone when called, unlike many other places who give a mobile phone number and never answer their phones and never return calls when messages are left. Will definitely be using him again in the future for both our cars. Excellent service - definitely an A*** from us! Well done!
Lee and his team were fantastic, turned up and just got on with it. More than satisfied with the suspension and had no issues with it since. Would 100% do business with again.
Really professional service, gave clear advice and reliable. Very pleased thank you.

Fantastic service at a great price! Would highly recommend and I will definitely be taking my car to them in future instead of my local garage who wanted to charge me double the price! Worth the 20 min drive
Brilliant quick service
The only garage in this area that would effect an emergency, and very necessary repair, on my car prior to long European journey. This mechanic is a youngish man of the 'old school' of mechanics. Not only is he an expert technician he really understands an engine as a living breathing entity. Do not be put off by his modest premises.
Adam was outstanding! He spent the time to diagnose and pinpoint the problem with my car...which has eluded my own garage and 4 AA mechanics! I can't recommend him highly enough! Fantastic mechanic.
Very friendly, efficient and did everything they could to help.
Rob and his team are very knowledgeable and have a very positive attitude. They gave me a better diagnosis then the BMW garage and their honest evaluation saved me both money and time! Thank you guys!!

The fuel pump is responsible for pumping fuel into the cylinders of the engine and performs an extremely important function in the running of a car.
Fuel injectors are susceptible to becoming dirty and often require cleaning, when they become clogged they can cause noticeable problems when driving.
There are some tell-tale signs that your fuel injector needs cleaning so as soon as you see the following indicators, take your to a mechanic.
You can buy fuel injector cleaning kits and perform the job yourself, however this will require getting your hands dirty and removing the part from the engine.
Unless you are a trained professional, this can be a difficult job which is why we would recommend that you leave the work to mechanic!
However, if you would like to carry out the work yourself, here is a step by step guide on how to clean a fuel injector.
The first step is the easiest, simply go to any shop around that sells car cleaning kits and get your hands on a fuel injection cleaning kit.
There may be more than one type of kit as different so make sure to get the right one for your car.
You may even have to assemble the kit yourself by buying cleaning fluid and other materials if there is not a full kit on sale.
Make sure to ask for help if you don’t know what to look for.
Each car is different and so the fuel injector will be located in different places. The easies way to find the part is by using the manual that came with your car when your first bought it. This will list where the fuel injection pump is.
This is where the job starts to get technical and we would once again recommend that you only follow these steps if you are familiar with car maintenance and are able to navigate a car engine with ease.
The fuel injectors will be connected to the fuel pump and there will be a few of them.
Remove the injectors and connect a fuel return line or U tube which will divert the fuel back to the tank.
Specific vehicles will require the complete removal of the fuel pump or relay for proper cleaning to be possible.
There should be a section in your car owners manual that tells you about how to disconnect the injectors from the pump and connect a U tube or return line so pay close attention to the instructions.
You should consult your car owners manual to locate the vacuum line, once you’ve found where it is in the engine, remove the tube.
The first thing you’ll need to do is locate the fuel pressure test port and connect your new cleaning kit.
The kit itself will have detailed instructions on how to perform this task.
The cleaner fluid itself is flammable so it’s vital that you don’t spill any of it over your engine or get it on the injectors themselves.
The cleaning kit works by shooting cleaning fluid and air at high pressure around the fuel system, however there needs to be somewhere for the air to escape just in case there is a blockage and a build up of pressure begins.
Ignoring this precaution could result in serious damage being caused to your car.
Make sure that all of the connections are properly fixed and ensure the fuel pump is switched off.
Now its time to turn on the engine.
The cleaner will then circulate through the injectors until the cycle is complete, make sure to follow the exact instructions on your specific kit as the time to leave the engine on may vary from kit to kit and engine type to engine type.
When you have switched the engine off, you will be free to remove the cleaner and reconnect all of the other parts that you have disconnected.
Once more, follow the instructions on in your car owners manual and on the cleaning kit itself to ensure this is all done properly.
Remember to close the fuel cap once you have completed cleaning your fuel injector.
This is the moment of truth and when you will find out whether you have managed to complete the job properly.
Turn on your car engine and listen to see if there are any abnormal sounds coming for the engine. If this is the case then you should take your car to a mechanic immediately and tell them what has happened.
However, if your car is still suffering from the symptoms we listed earlier in the guide, your fuel injector pump and injectors may need replacing and cleaning them has simply had no effect as they are damaged.
If cleaning the parts of the fuel injection system has not resolved your issue, you will need to take your car in for repair.
As there are several parts that make up the system there may only be certain parts that require repair or replacement so costs and time taken to complete the work will vary greatly.
If you have attempted to clean the system with using the advice above, make sure to tell the mechanic as they will likely attempt to carry this work out in a first attempt to resolve the issue.
