When to replace the CSFI fuel injector assembly?
The CSFI does use a MAF sensor and the plenum is plastic and was used from 1996 on up on the 4.3L, 5.0L and 5.7L engines. Also, when anything fails in the CPI type system, you have to replace the entire fuel injector assembly. In the CSFI system, all parts can be replaced individually.
How to troubleshoot your TBI fuel injection system?
Troubleshooting your TBI Fuel Injection System Most of the problems encountered while installing your fuel injection system or after a time of operation are very simple. If your check engine light is on you more than likely have a hard fault meaning something is grounded out, unplugged, operating out of range or has gone bad. See
What are the symptoms of a bad fuel injector assembly?
Symptoms Of A Bad ‘Spider’ Fuel Injector Assembly. The most common type of failure (related to the ‘Spider’ fuel injector) is usually not the assembly itself going bad, but the fuel pressure regulator going bad. The fuel pressure regulator is infamous for leaking fuel from its vacuum inlet nipple.
What kind of fuel injection does GM 4.3L use?
‘Spider’ Fuel Injection Basics There are two types of the ‘Spider’ fuel injector assemblies used on the GM 4.3L, 5.0L, 5.7L engines and this article will help you with both types. In case you’re wondering, one type belongs to the Central Port Injection (CPI) system and the other to the Central Sequential Fuel Injection (CSFI) system.
What kind of problems does a 1993 Jimmy have?
I have a 1993 Jimmy. It has been having starting issues. We have heard everything from the fuel injectors needs to be cleaned to replacing the water pump. We have replaced the computer twice, the second time the garage replaced it free. But now it does not start but turns over.
When did Vortec start using CSFI fuel injection?
The system was used on 4.3L V6 Vortec engines through 1995, and was redesigned in 1996 and renamed “Central Sequential Fuel Injection” (CSFI). The system was also added to 5.0L and 5.7L Vortec V8 engines.
What is the fuel pressure in a CSFI system?
Fuel pressure in the CSFI system is a bit higher than the CPI system (60 to 66 psi with key on engine off), and the regulator maintains the operating pressure at 55 to 57 psi. The poppet valves in the spray nozzles also open at a slightly lower pressure (about 40 psi). The injectors fire just before each intake valve opens.
How can I tell if my GMC Truck has a hard start?
The first step in diagnosing a hard start or no start on a GMC or Chevy truck with one of these systems, therefore, would be to check fuel pressure. If fuel pressure is less than the KOEO specification, you need to test the fuel pump and its voltage supply circuit.
