The diesel engine injectors are an integral part of the engine that is designed to fire a fine mist of fuel directly into the outer cylinder. Over the course of time, the injectors will deteriorate and cause major issues with the engine. In some cases, replacing the injectors may become necessary.
When it becomes necessary to replace the diesel injectors there are two options of you can take. You can get refurbished injectors or get remanufactured ones instead.
Each has potential pros and cons that you may need to consider when choosing which is the best option for you. This article will highlight the key differences between remanufactured and refurbished injectors to better help you decide.
Refurbished diesel engine injectors are the cheaper option when it comes to replacing faulty injectors. They are removed from the running engine and then are cleaned externally and internally.
Following the cleaning process, the refurbished diesel injectors are tested to ensure that they meet necessary and up-to-date specifications from the manufacturer or OEM. Despite being the cheaper option a refurbished injector is typically a second-hand component from a highly used engine.
None of the internal components of a refurbished injector are replaced or inspected to ensure they are sound. Instead, a refurbished injector is primarily a type of aesthetic maintenance and does not involve any sort of repair.
Another drawback of refurbished diesel injectors is that they generally only come with a one-year warranty. This is generally because they can’t be fully guaranteed to work beyond the one-year period.
Injectors that undergo the remanufacturing process may be slightly more expensive than those that are refurbished but the cost is often worth it. Remanufactured or rebuilt injectors are completely disassembled and each component is thoroughly inspected for defects.
Any component that does not meet the strict inspection process is replaced with a completely new one. Unlike the refurbishing process, the process of remanufacturing diesel engine injectors is comprehensive and goes beyond aesthetics.
Once the injectors are completely remanufactured, they are tested to meet the highest industry standards and ensure lasting durability. These tests are conducted with specialized equipment that is designed to analyze data that guarantees the injectors will work like new.
