Performing your own maintenance can save you money. The Duramax is a family of large diesel engines manufactured by General Motors. Like all engines, Duramax engines rely on a functioning fuel system to fire. The fuel injector is an essential component of the fuel system. It helps maintain the flow of fuel to the engine. A common issue with fuel injectors is the wiring harness has corroded, which can lead to a fuel leak. Check the fuel injector harness, which secures the fuel line to the fuel injector. When a fuel injector goes bad, you may notice some starting problems with your vehicle.
