Fuel Injection Repair in Grants Pass, OR
Fuel Injection Repair in Grants Pass, Oregon, 97526
How does fuel injection work?
We at STAR Automotive in Grants Pass are very familiar with how fuel injection works. In order for your vehicle’s engine to run smoothly, it needs to be provided with the proper ratio of fuel to air. A fuel injector is an electronically controlled valve that supplies fuel from the fuel pump to the vehicle’s engine. The fuel injector is capable of opening and closing multiple times a second. When the injector is activated, an electromagnet moves a plunger that opens the valve, allowing pressurized fuel to squirt out through a tiny nozzle. The nozzle is designed to make the fuel as fine a mist as possible so that it can burn easily. The fuel injector is controlled by the vehicle’s engine control unit, or ECU.
How do I know if my vehicle needs a fuel injection repair?
Whether you drive a Ford, Toyota, Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen, or something else, the signs of a damaged or dirty fuel injector are the same. A faulty fuel injector will mess up the intervals in which fuel is sprayed or will prevent fuel from being sprayed into the engine altogether. It is possible that your fuel injector is clogged or dirty and does not need to be replaced entirely. At STAR Automotive in Josephine County, we offer fuel injection cleaning & service and can help you clean your injectors out or replace them if needed. In addition to fuel injection repair, we also offer services in engine repair, scheduled maintenance, tune-ups, and wheel alignment.
Here are some signs of a faulty fuel injector:
- Rough idle or engine stalls.
- Your engine vibrates or misfires.
If your vehicle is not getting enough fuel from the fuel injectors, it will fail to accelerate properly and your engine will vibrate or misfire.
- Your check engine light turns on.
- You notice a fuel leak and/or a fuel odor.
- Your engine surges.
- Your vehicle’s fuel economy declines.
Before vehicles are released, they go through a fuel economy test conducted by the EPA to get an estimated mileage for your car. If your car is not getting as many miles per gallon as it once did, there may be an issue with your fuel injector.
- Your vehicle fails an emissions test.

A Few Words from Our Customers
"Great job guys! I brought my 1994 Impala SS in to have new bearings put in the rear end they did a fantastic job in good time for an honest price. I will be using them now for many projects that I have as well as others. Thanks again, great job."
"Ed, Dave, Travis and the rest of the team at Star Automotive were great! They quickly diagnosed the problem, a blown radiator hose, fixed it and had me back on the road the same day. I appreciated their honesty as well. I would definitely recommend and return back to this shop if I need service for my automobile. Thanks again for the great job. "
" From my first phone contact, all the way through the job, everyone was very friendly, professional, and thorough. The job seems to have been done satisfactorily. The price was a bit higher than what another local shop estimated, but you can't beat the quality service from STAR. Definitely recommend! :)"
