Just to be clear, you have a noisy fuel injector?

Ford Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 6 months ago

If it's simply a noisy injector, then the answer is yes, it's safe to drive. If the injector fails you will notice a misfire on the engine. This won't leave you stranded or damage anything at all, so yes, feel free to drive the car.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
