A major recent technological innovation to hit the automotive industry is Direct Injection. It’s more efficient, improves performance, and compatibility. However, with new technology comes new problems and issues. One of those such issues that has reared its ugly head in the form of LSPI. LSPI, or Low Speed Pre-Ignition, is a pre-ignition event that occurs in gasoline vehicle engines when there is a premature ignition of the main fuel charge. LSPI is most common in certain turbocharged direct-injection vehicles operating in low-speed and high-load driving conditions. LSPI events are random and infrequent, and their effects on impacted vehicles can include very high-pressure spikes, loud knocking noises and sometimes catastrophic engine damage. To alleviate this problem, LIQUI MOLY has come out with DI-Jectron. DI-Jectron is an all new injector cleaner specially formulated for direct injection engines. DI-Jectron is designed to clean the injectors, while also cleaning the area around the injector tip inside the combustion chamber. Doing so prevents the buildup of debris and deposits that contribute to LSPI.
