Mercedes Benz Fuel Injector Parts
Imagine one day being in a rush to work and having trouble starting up your Mercedes. Your trusty Mercedes that has never given you any trouble, all of a sudden decides to fail on you when you most need it. But what could be the cause of such a failure to start the Mercedes. While it may signal a number of problems we are going to focus on a Mercedes Benz fuel injector failure. We will take a look at what a fuel injector does and what may cause it to fail.
The Mercedes Benz fuel injector is a part of your vehicle’s fuel injection system. The majority of modern cars today have a fuel injection system as opposed to the carburetor that was commonly used with older cars. But as engines changed and a more direct type of fuel injection was needed these new fuel injection systems became more common. The job of the Mercedes fuel injector is to open and spray pressurized fuel into the engine. The fuel injector is capable of opening many times per second to release the necessary amount of fuel spray. The engine control unit (ECU) plays an important part in the function of the fuel injector. The ECU controls how much fuel is needed and it also controls the amount of time the fuel injector stays open for. The amount of time the fuel injector stays open is known as the pulse width.
The Mercedes Benz fuel injector is located in the intake manifold. This is convenient so that the fuel injector sprays fuel directly at the intake valves. The fuel rail pipe is what supplies the pressurized fuel to the fuel injectors. So basically, a Mercedes fuel injector will provide fuel more precisely so that no fuel is wasted. This leads to lower emissions and lower fuel consumption but can also lead to some loss in power. Another important function of the Mercedes Benz fuel injector will be to maximize airflow. It is able to do this because it frees the intake system to allow maximum airflow. This happens because the airflow and air mixture are optimized by the ECU hundreds of times per second in order to determine the amount of time the fuel injector stays open to spray the fuel.
Your Mercedes Benz runs on diesel fuel but it will still use a fuel injection system. The Mercedes Benz diesel injector works the same as gasoline injectors since it is using direct fuel injection. It may vary because it uses either a common rail or unit injector direct injection systems. In the common rail a high-pressure fuel rail to feed individual solenoid valves instead of using low-pressure fuel pump unit injectors. In the unit injector fuel injection system the injector nozzle and the injection pump is combined into a single component.
