Good morning Patrick,
Thanks for the response. Forgive my ignorance as I only have a satellite view understanding of injectors.
So, if the injector pulse from the IDM is 110V – 120V and a normal solenoid resistance is ~3.5 ohms the current would equate to ~31-32 amps. Given that current is inversely proportional to resistance, a solenoid coil with 3x the resistance would mean ~1/3 the current, or around 12 amps. I’ll assume for a minute that that would generate a magnetic field that is insufficient to properly pull the poppet valve off its seat (or perhaps for the proper duration). I don’t know if that is true or not because I don’t know what the injector specs indicate…just using simple Ohms Law stuff…
I understand the logic behind swapping solenoids to another cylinder IF I had other data, like a CCT or Buzz test or some other running test, to see if the problem moves…but not sure the intent otherwise?
I know I can buy just a solenoid…so is replacing just the solenoid acceptable? Or ore the injectors “matched” to a solenoid? I don’t see how they would be but again, not sure…
Any additional insight would be appreciated!!
