An engine needs a correct mixture of fuel and air for it to function at its best. The modern engines are so reliable that one often forgets that the engine might need a fuel injection service someday. There can come a time when you may find that your fuel injection has become slow or dirty. A fuel injection is service is required during such a situation. Modern engines require a sharp monitoring which should be entrusted to specialists with the control instruments and appropriate tools. For new cars, these operations are included in the plans of maintenance provided by the dealer of the mark. In the case of purchase of a car, or of an ex-car fleet, this depends on the conditions of acquisition.

The injection system of your car has a crucial role in the effectiveness of your engine as it affects the performance and pollution. It must, therefore, be the subject of a regular review to detect and correct the alterations in its performance.

1. Emissions of pollutants (carbon monoxide CO, carbon dioxide CO2, nitrogen oxide NOx, unburned hydrocarbons HC, dioxide O2);
pollution system (Exhaust Gas Recirculation Valve /EGR, catalytic converter);
2. State and good operation of the turbocharger;
3. condition and correct operation of the injection system (high-pressure pump, solenoid valves, rail, injectors) to check the flow rate of the pump and the good vaporization of fuel by the injectors, two major factors the proper operation of the engine.
4. State of the air inlet circuit.
5. State of the exhaust line.
