Q: Possible fuel injector problem that I need fixed.

asked by on

Car starts but won't stay on. I think there might be a problem with the fuel injectors.

Clogged fuel injectors are a possible cause of this condition along with a clogged fuel filter and weak or inoperative fuel pump. My first suggestion would be to have a professional do an inspection. If fuel pressure is low then there is either a restriction in the fuel system or the fuel pump is weak.
