Bosch Launches ChooseTheRightInjector.com For Diesel Owners, Techs

Bosch has launched a new website - ChooseTheRightInjector.com - designed to provide information and education necessary to help diesel vehicle owners and technicians make the right choice when purchasing replacement injectors for vehicle service.

ChooseTheRightInjector.com-Home-pagenew-300x208Bosch has launched a new website – ChooseTheRightInjector.com – designed to provide information and education necessary to help diesel vehicle owners and technicians make the right choice when purchasing replacement injectors for vehicle service.

The site offers in-depth information on a variety of key topics, including:

  • Why injectors fail
  • Hazards of using non-authorized remanufactured injectors
  • Frequently asked questions

“Common rail engines are less forgiving of poor repair quality than conventional engines,” said Ross Sandercock, director of diesel products for Bosch Automotive Aftermarket North America. “Although there are many options for selecting rebuilt/remanufactured injectors that can save you money, there are also as many risks associated with choosing an injector from a non-authorized remanufacturer. Consumers and technicians need to know the risks and understand the choices they have in order to make an informed decision regarding diesel vehicle service and performance,” he said.

Bosch says it conducted an intense evaluation of a number of non-authorized rebuilt injectors available in the market. More than 50 percent failed and presented a significant potential hazard to the engine if installed in a diesel common rail system.

Potential hazards included:
• Loss of power
• Decrease in fuel economy
• Failure to operate after a short period of time
• Increased noise
• No start
• Smoke
• Engine damage
• Exhaust system damage

According to Sandercock, an injector from a non-authorized remanufacturer could cause an issue as simple (but expensive) as a decrease in fuel economy; but at worst may lead to catastrophic engine or exhaust system damage. In fact, one failed injector could destroy the entire exhaust system and lead to complete engine failure, he said.

Using a problem-solution approach, ChooseTheRightInjector.com takes visitors through the most common injector failure scenarios, lists the symptoms of those failures, and offers helpful tips on how to avoid them.
