One or more fuel injectors may become stuck closed causing an engine misfire  and the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us that this problem can be caused by some fuel additives. There are special procedures which may be able to restore the affected injector. If this fails the affected injector must be replaced.

    I have seen this happen on about a dozen occasions, it is a definite problem with this design of fuel injection, but they do sell an upgrade design as a replacement, which is very nice.
