What is a Fuel Injector?

The fuel injector supplies the engine with precisely measured amounts of fuel to help it run properly. It’s a simple enough component in theory, but since you’ve already got your thinking cap on, let’s dig a little deeper into this. The fuel injector is the last stop in your fuel system before the fuel is used for combustion. When’s the last time you worked on a cool science project? It’s probably been a while. But guess what? You’re basically doing them every time you drive your car. The fuel injector takes the liquid fuel and atomizes it to make the combustion efficient. Continuous fuel delivery is necessary to keep your car running and running smoothly. Fuel injectors tend to be connected to the top of the engine. If you want a good visual, imagine a mini hose that sprays gasoline into down into the cylinder, and that’s pretty much it. Depending on the location of the fuel injector, it might make it a bit awkward or difficult to replace, but here’s the thing: You’re not gonna repair it. You’re not gonna replace it. Fuel injectors will last a while, but when they go, they go, and it’s time to get some new ones under the hood.

Symptoms of a failing Fuel Injector

Poor engine performance

You might notice a rough idle, sputtering during acceleration, or lunging during cruising conditions. You might not like these things. You might even find yourself compelled to do something about it. Good for you. That’s the right response. When your fuel injectors kick the bucket, your engine won’t receive the proper ratio of air to gasoline. That means that the combustion won’t be quite right, which means the engine won’t be operating the way you’re used to it operating. And that’s not good. Just as bad, your car’s fuel efficiency can plummet. Do you like losing money?

Difficulty idling or turning on

Perhaps you do the not-smart thing and don’t pay attention to those poor performance issues. Well guess what will happen? They’ll get worse. And worse. And worse. If your car doesn’t have fully functioning fuel injectors, then the right amount of gasoline won’t make it to the engine. The engine won’t fire properly, and what could happen is the car won’t want to run. That means your car may stall when it idles. And it might even get to the point where it won’t run at all. Which makes it kind of hard to drive.

Warning lights

Your car’s monitoring system can detect issues with the fuel system. Pay attention to these warning lights, so you don’t end up wasting more money than you have to. You listen to your friends when they warn you about something, right?

Sights and smells

You’ve got five senses. Now’s the time to use them. So, let’s start with sight. If you see smoke emerging from your car, something’s wrong. If that smoke is black and coming out of the exhaust, you may have funky air injectors. Now let’s move to your sense of smell. If you smell raw fuel when you’re driving, something is wrong and quite possibly that something is a fuel injector.

How urgent is a Fuel Injector replacement?

Failing to replace your fuel injectors can leave you stranded. Thinking even further into the possibilities, imagine if you needed to accelerate to avoid a hazardous event, such as a collision! We don’t want you to be in those situations and not be able to avoid it, so it’s best to get your fuel injector replaced immediately.

What is a fuel injector and how does it work?

A fuel injector is a fuel metering device that sprays atomized droplets of fuel in a specific pattern into the engine’s intake manifold or directly into the combustion chamber. The injector has a solenoid and valve within and the operation, or pulsing, of the solenoid is controlled by the powertrain control module (PCM). The PCM controls the solenoid’s “on” time in order to keep the air-fuel ratio optimized while the engine load and operating conditions constantly change. Fuel injectors are usually connected to a fuel rail located on the top of the engine and the fuel rail, in turn, is supplied with fuel under pressure from the fuel pump located in the fuel tank.

When to consider replacing a fuel injector:

  • Rough idle, loss of power, or misfiring. Poor engine operation has many causes but faults in the fuel injection system, including the fuel injectors, are high on the list of possibilities.
  • Odor of raw gas or visible leaks. Fuel injectors should not leak fuel into the intake manifold when the car is off. If you notice any fuel odor around your car, the possibility of a leaking fuel injector should be considered. There should be no external leak from a fuel injector. If an externally-leaking injector is suspected, do not start your car due to the fire hazard.
  • Check engine light. Some fuel injection failures, for example, a faulty solenoid, may cause a trouble code to be set in the PCM and that will cause the check engine light to illuminate. The codes are read and the fuel injector is tested directly, as needed.
  • Major engine repairs, engine replacement, or lengthy storage. All fuel injectors will have deposits given enough mileage. These deposits can cause an imbalance in the performance of the injectors from cylinder to cylinder. When an engine is already disassembled, or if you are installing a new engine, that is a perfect time to service the injectors as a set. All injectors have tiny internal filter baskets. A professional injector service facility will clean each injector ultrasonically and replace these filters for a relatively low cost.

How do mechanics replace a fuel injector?

Injectors can be serviced once removed from the car or replaced outright with new injectors. If the injectors are serviced, specialized cleaning and test equipment are required. The choice to repair versus replace will depend on exactly what is wrong with the injector as well as customer preference. Either option requires removing the injector from the car and the following procedure is typical:

  • Once the engine is cold, the pressure within the fuel rail is relieved by briefly running the engine with the fuel pump fuse out.
  • The upper plenum on the intake manifold is removed along with any cables, hoses, or wiring that restricts access.
  • The supply and return lines are removed from the fuel rail. The electrical connectors to each fuel injector are unlocked and removed. The fuel rail is then unbolted and removed from the intake manifold.
  • The injector(s) requiring replacement are removed from the fuel rail, taking care to not allow any debris to enter the exposed openings. An O-ring seal usually holds the injector very firmly in a finely polished bore in the fuel rail.
  • Using a new O-ring, the serviced or replaced injector is re-inserted into the fuel rail — using engine oil on the O-ring to prevent damaging it. O-rings in this application fit very tight to prevent fuel leaks.
  • The fuel rail is re-installed and the supply and return lines are re-connected. The plenum is re-installed along with all cables, hoses, or wiring.
  • Finally, the engine is run, there is a careful check for leaks, and the vehicle is road tested.

Is it safe to drive with a fuel injector problem?

Yes, so long as there is no external leak of fuel from a broken or malfunctioning injector, it is safe to drive the car. However, if the injector is known to be malfunctioning, it can cause engine misfires, excessive emissions or, in the case of a badly leaking injector, can overload and overheat the catalytic converter. Additionally, fuel efficiency will always be diminished if the fuel injectors are not working properly.

When replacing a fuel injector keep in mind:

  • Using high quality (Tier One) gasoline may reduce deposits on fuel injectors and prolong their life.
  • If an injector problem develops that requires removal of one injector, the best practice is to remove and service all of the injectors at the same time. That service might involve replacement of the electrically failed injector along with off-the-car cleaning of the remaining injectors. Serving all injectors at once ensures the injector set will be balanced, in terms of flow rates, and in turn promote smooth operation of the engine.
  • Do not use fuel system cleaning compounds, or procedures, unless such materials are specified by the manufacturer of your car.
  • On the car cleaning of fuel injectors is not as effective as off-the-car cleaning because injectors have tiny internal filter baskets that should be replaced as part of the process of servicing a fuel injector.

Fuel injectors can go the life of a modern vehicle with little to no trouble at all.  That being said, bad fuel injectors are one of the more common issues that happen to any vehicle (Honda CR-V included).  There’s always more than one, and one going bad is enough to make a noticeable impact on the drivability of the vehicle.

Bad Fuel Inector Diagnosis Honda CR-V

There are two main ways that your injectors can go bad.  The first is for them to become clogged, dirty, or unresponsive.  When this happens not enough fuel enters into your CR-V’s combustion chamber.  The other way is if the injectors are leaking.  When they leak, they can really do some damage.


Bad Fuel Injector Symptoms:  Honda CR-V

The symptoms of bad fuel injectors are going to feel almost the same as a bad fuel pump or fuel filter.  That’s why it’s important to check the fuel pressure at the rail before replacing injectors, otherwise you may end throwing good money after bad.  If you do end up needing to replace the injectors, they are somewhat affordable.

Honda CR-V Bad Fuel Injector Symptoms

Dirty | Clogged | Unresponsive Injectors

  • Difficult to start–  When some of the cylinders aren’t getting the right amount of fuel, it can be very difficult for the engine to turn over.  It my not even start at all.
  • Idle Issues–  With a fuel injector that is not properly atomizing fuel properly, your CR-V is going to have a difficult time idling.  It’ll feel almost exactly the same as if it had a bad spark plug.  That is to say there will be a sudden drop in idle speed.  It may feel like the engine is about to die.
  • Emissions Issues–  When the fuel is not entering the combustion chamber in the right quantity, the engine may adjust the air/fuel mixture, which can lead to increased exhaust emissions.
  • Loss of Power–  Typically, as the engine RPM increases, you won’t be able to “feel” the engine misfire as much.  But, you’ll definitely notice the lack of power.
  • Less Fuel Mileage–  Your CR-V’s engine management computer is constantly adjusting the air/fuel ratio and timing to get optimal combustion.  When the fuel injectors aren’t working properly it can’t do that and fuel mileage suffers.
  • Knock/Detonation–  Detonation can cause your CR-V’s engine to blow.  This is certainly the worst case scenario.  Don’t ignore an engine that isn’t running right.  You’ll do way more damage in the long run by not fixing the problem now.


Leaking Injectors

A leaking injector can cause all of the problems listed above, as well as:

  • Thin Oil–  When a fuel injector leaks, all of that fuel is not getting burned in the combustion chamber.  Any gas that is not fired and sent out as exhaust ends up in the oil pan.  When this happens it can decrease your CR-V’s engine lubrication to the point that it’ll lock up.  You will smell fuel on the dipstick.
  • The Smell of Fuel–  When your engine is getting too much fuel, your CR-V can’t burn it all.  You’ll probably notice the smell of gas as you are driving locally.  On the highway, there’ll probably be too much wind for you to catch it.
  • Engine Locks Up–  Once too much gas gets in the oil, the motor will lock up.  If you have reason to suspect there is gas in your oil, do not drive your CR-V.  Change the oil.


Bad Fuel Injectors Diagnosis:  Honda CR-V

Leaking fuel injectors are often caused by a bad a crack in their body.  When this occurs they must be replaced.  

If the injectors are clogged you’ll need to have them cleaned by a professional.  When they are dirty but not yet clogged, you may be able to clean them with a good fuel injector cleaner.  

Here is a great video from “Ratchets and Wrenches” on YouTube on how to go about the process of diagnosing a fuel injector from beginning to end.



If your CR-V is experiencing the symptoms of bad fuel injectors, it would be wise to address the issue right away.  If there is anything you would like to add, please feel free to leave a comment below.  Good luck!
