Feul injector problems

Due to the excessive overheating of the engine due to a burst radiator,I think I have damaged the fuel injectors,is this possible?The car is not idling consistently and could this be the cause for the "engine management system"light to burn!!!? The car fuel consumption has worsened. What can I do to rectify the problem or would I have to take the car to a tune up machine to check the car computer settings and/or check the injector performance!!!???
Regards,
Toyotamad

Mcdevito75 here, The only damage I can imagine to the fuel injectors is that seals on them could start leaking from the excessive engine heat. When your radiator blew you most likely warped 1 or both cylinder heads or at least crack 1 of the head gaskets, an expensive repair. Have your shop check it out.

How do i ck if fuel pump defective or no pulse at injector no power.


If you have fuel coming out of the lines when you are cranking the engine then your fuel pump is working. You should only get a small burst of fuel when you first turn the key on and then nothing while the key is on, the ECU only tells the fuel pump to turn on when cranking and when it can see cam and crank sensor signals while the engine is running. The small burst of fuel you may or may not have experienced is only to prime the fuel rails. To test your injectors, you can buy what is called a "noid" light. They have them at most stores that have a good tool/automotive section, such as sears. You unplug one injector with the engine off, plug the noid light into the injector connector (harness side going to injector). Then start or crank the engine over and see if you can see the light pulse on and of very fast. You may need two people due to limited visibility while cranking the engine. Repeat this for the rest of the injectors. If you have an "ohm" meter, you can ohm check the injectors by disconnecting each one and touching the pins inside the connector cavity on each injector. The ohm reading should read between 5-20 ohms. I hope this info helps!

Misfire from cylinder 1 and fuel injection stuck open


One problem will cause another in this case. You can try to just change the fuel injector in the number 1 cylinder and see if the misfire straightens out.

You can use a test light to see if there is a pulse in the wire harness to the number 1 injector. Or there are plug-in lights which attach to the head of the injector harness to show firing of the injectors. Either way, th pulse should be a timed intermittent burst to that 1 cylinder when it is time to fire, just a spark goes to a sparkplug in intermittent bursts.

The crankshaft or camshaft sensor should send divided, pulsed signals to open the injector for fuel release. If the injector is jammed so that it does not go back to its seated position, you will get excessive fuel inside the engine when it is off. The fuel will bleed down into the crankcase and dilute the oil over time. This ruins an engine.

The fuel system normally remains pressurized and when the engine is turned off; the fuel will leak into the cylinder that is not shut. You may have to change the sparkplug as it can be gas-fouled by now. An oil change would be a good idea after you change the injector.

I have a 2002 Jaguar X-type. The check engine light came on and it has been acting jumpy/shaky. I recently took it to be diagnosed and the codes I recieved back were P1314, P1316, P1111, and P0302..What do...


All fault codes can be checked out at http://www.bluejag.co.uk but here are the results for some of yours. You can ignor P1111. Looks like a faulty plug or coil pack cylinder 2

Fault Code:- P1314 Indicates a Power-train fault


The fault is generally due to a problem in the Ignition or Misfire area


Fault Description: Misfire rate catalyst damage -bank 2 NOTE: This DTC will flag only when accompanied by an individual cylinder misfire DTC: P0300 - P0306

Action of ECM:- ECM Default:- Maximum engine speed reduced


After clearing the DTC, complete the Misfire monitor drive cycle
Check for a reoccurrence of fault DTC.


Possible Fault:- Cylinder compression low Worn camshaft / broken valve spring(s) Fuel delivery pressure (low / high) Fuel injector(s) restricted / leaking Fuel injector(s) continuously open Fuel contamination Fuel injector circuit fault(s) (Injector DTCs also flagged) Spark plug failure / fouled / incorrect gap ECM to ignition coil primary circuit fault (Cylinder misfire detected DTC also flagged) Ignition coil failure
Fault Code:- P1316 Indicates a Power-train fault


The fault is generally due to a problem in the Ignition or Misfire area


Fault Description: Misfire excess emission NOTE: This DTC will flag only when accompanied by an individual cylinder misfire DTC: P0300 - P0306

Action of ECM:- none


After clearing the DTC, complete the Misfire monitor drive cycle
Check for a reoccurrence of fault DTC.

Engine miss


if you have only one cylinder getting that excessive fuel it indicates that the computer thinks that that cylinder is not sparking and thinks no fuel is the proble. this is due to a timing issue. even though you replace the injector which was most likely not the problem to begin with. in order to get spark the coil has to energize you more than likely have a bad coil pack.replace the coil and your miss will no longer exist.
