It’s usually stated that if you fill your tank with high-test gas that it will prevent dirty fuel injectors. This is only partially true since gas is not always uniform in quality it can still at times contain contaminants that affect the fuel injectors. When the engine is turned off, any fuel remaining in the injectors will dry and leave a residue or varnish on the tips. Mercedes-Benz fuel injector tips are tiny like a hypodermic needle with extremely small holes to spray the spark plug chambers with an atomized fuel in order to provide a complete combustion. When the tiny fuel injector tips get plugged with dirt, debris or hardened deposits that can pass into the fuel injectors, a Mercedes can begin to show symptoms of poor acceleration, rough idling, hesitation, misfiring under quick acceleration and even failure of the emissions testing. The typical recommendation for a Mercedes fuel injector cleaning is by 30K miles. Linear Automotive recommends factory OEM parts and fluids in their repairs and services.
For the auto repair enthusiast, there are ways to determine whether the fuel injectors are clogged or don’t receive proper electric signals from the computer. One way is to conduct a flow test to see if the standard fuel flow rate from the injectors compares with the current flow rate. Another test is to use a noid light that will check whether the ECM is sending the proper signal to the fuel injector. On other Mercedes models use the multi-meter gauge to check whether you receive 12 volts in terminal #2 of the fuel injector plug while the other wire is connected to the engine metal as a ground. Ohms or resistant test for the plug receptor on the motor, red wire on left and black wire on right of injector plug should read 12 ohms. Each injector can be tested.
A symptom for a stuck open fuel injector is different than a closed injector. Checking for fuel smell can be done in the engine compartment and even out the tail pipe. If this is happening the unburned fuel can cause the catalytic converter to overheat and permanently damage the catalytic converter.
If you decide to come in for our Mercedes-Benz fuel injection cleaning service, we will first disconnect the engine gas lines and connect the fuel injector machine to the engine fuel rail. We use a specialized commercial cleaning formula detergent for cleaning your fuel injectors. This process will also clean any small screens in the fuel injector, the fuel tips and also clean the throttle body simultaneously. While the engine is running the cleaning solution also cleans up any deposits on the inside of the combustion chambers, the valves and fuel injectors. It takes about 15 minutes on the machine to clean them thoroughly, but a technician overseeing the process will determine when they are clean.
Linear Automotive can check your Mercedes fuel injectors and determine if they are a problem. We will check to see whether a cleaning will be beneficial, or whether replacement is necessary or even possibly it is something else.
