EFI a bit IFFY?

The Electronic Fuel Injection system (EFI) is a computer controlled high pressure fuel delivery system in modern vehicles providing the best power production and fuel efficiency possible for your engine - when it is working correctly.

Improved combustion efficiency and control in running the car engine at specific air to fuel ratios, despite variable loads on the engine, allows the EFI system to improve your fuel consumption by using a leaner air to fuel ratio than would otherwise be possible. This significantly increases the thermal efficiency of the engine and reduces brake specific fuel consumption.

EFI is an acronym for Electronic Fuel Injection, the process of delivering fuel from the tank to the engine via direct injection. Problems with fuel injection systems can vary from minor to major concerns. We use/check a wide range of parts including:

  • Fuel injectors: Electronically controlled valves which control the fuel supply
  • Cylinder head
  • High pressure fuel pump
  • Fuel Regulator: Sensor which regulates how much fuel is atomized
  • Sequential firing device: Controls the individual fuel injectors so that they open just before their cylinder for maximum efficiency
  • Fuel rail: Provides the pressure to the fuel injection system
  • Mass airflow sensor: Sensor in the engine control unit which measures the amount of air that is coming into the engine
  • Oxygen sensor: Located in the exhaust system to measure how much fuel is being burned and how much is left
  • Throttle position: Set to monitor how much air is pushed into the system
  • Coolant temperature sensor: Maintains the temperature of the engine

For a high quality Fuel Injection Service at a competitive price, contact Port Adelaide Auto Repairs. We are located at 21 Liddon Place and service customers in and around Port Adelaide, Alberton, Ethelton and the surrounding areas.
