Direct Injection 101 Class is in Session. How does it work? Well, from doing it, you can get a complete combustion and a cooler cylinder temperature that would result in greater competence and power, by injecting high pressure gasoline right in the combustion chamber of your vehicle’s engine. The fuel will be more accurately measured when you do that. By combining direct injection with turbocharging, you’d be able to achieve better performance and economical gains. That’s a win for everyone! Even the carmakers benefit from it. They can make smaller engines, which would be more efficient for them. They use direct injection to boost performance and fuel economy that’s almost as good as that of the hybrid, but cheaper. On the down side, direct injection has reportedly caused problems however, such as engine carbon buildup and clogged fuel systems, which may result in insufficient power and a faltering engine. Over time, expensive repairs may be necessary. But thankfully, some carmakers have actually created an engineering fix for this, so your valves remain clean. Simple – while your car is in use, the engine will spray a tiny bit of fuel onto the valves. ………………………………………………….. Remember, not every car will experience long term problems because of direct injection, but if yours does, you’ve found the right folks!
