Cummins N14 Injector Troubleshooting and Repair "With this particular injector the way it works is that the solenoid is in an always open position allowing fuel from the rail into the injector and only closes during the downward stroke of the metering plunger so as not to allow the fuel to go back to the rail, rather trapping it in the injector and metering it to the cylinder. Technically, with this particular injector it would be more that the injector fuel supply is “closed” electronically at the injector. danielresume 6 months ago The solenoid is the only aspect of this injector that is electronic and governed by the ECM. It has been my experience that when these solenoids get weak or fail completely the engine might still run at idle without a misfire but under power will miss and have no power. The injector also has a ceramic check ball and metering plunger which will cause the same condition under power if worn as they will allow fuel to escape under pressure rather than injecting to the cylinder." I hope this Mechanic tip has been helpful.

Cummins N14 Injector Troubleshooting
I found this interesting video from a Mechanic named Daniel who posted an in-depth video on troubleshooting and repairing an injector miss problem on a Cummins N14 injector. This is an electronic diesel model that has solenoid controlled injectors pulsed by the engine ECM. It's an interesting video and very detailed for the aspiring Cummins N14 Mechanic.
