Similarly, it is asked, what does a fuel rail do?
Fuel Rail. The main function of thefuelrail consists in the optimal distribution of thefuel(gasoline, methane, etc.) to the injectors in the highor lowpressure supply systems of endothermic engines.
Also Know, what are the symptoms of a bad fuel rail pressure sensor? Usually a bad or failing fuel rail sensor will produce afewsymptoms that can alert the driver to a potentialissue.
- Hard starting. One of the first symptoms of a potentialproblemwith the fuel rail sensor is hard starting.
- Decrease in power, acceleration and fuel efficiency.
- Check Engine Light comes on.
Keeping this in consideration, how does a fuel injection system work?
How a fuel injection system works.Petrol-enginedcars use indirect fuel injection. Afuel pump sendsthe petrol to the engine bay, and it is theninjected intothe inlet manifold by an injector. Thereis either aseparate injector for each cylinder or one or twoinjectorsinto the inlet manifold.
How does a common rail diesel fuel system work?
The fuel in an electronically controlled engineisstored at variable pressure in a cylinder or 'rail'connectedto the engine's fuel injectors via individualpipes, makingit a 'common rail' to all the injectors. Afurther advantageof the CRDi system is that it injects thefueldirectly into the combustion chamber.
