Warning Signs of injector Failure

Posted by Becca Knight on January 11, 2018

Picture the scene, you’re driving along when a red engine warning light appears, there is a dull thud from under the bonnet, and the engine definitely doesn’t sound right. All power vanishes as you roll to a stop as safely as you can and the vehicle is hard to get moving again.
