As the engine operates and all other systems connected to it start their jobs too, the necessary automotive fluids will also begin to circulate. One of the systems that holds and transports the vehicle's most important fluid is the fuel system. All of the components making it up have to deal with fuel of varying temperature and pressure. So even the slightest problem, such as a cracked or worn out crush or Banjo washer, should be checked and replaced as soon as possible as that small issue could become more serious to a point that it will imperil fuel delivery if not taken cared of immediately.
When you're in need of a new crush or banjo washer, you may be overwhelmed by the lots of choices available in the market. And it isn't a good idea to use the eeny-meeny-miny-moe method when choosing one. You see, it will be installed in your ride's fuel system, so you dare not take chances on substandard components. We've tried the AEM banjo washer in our ride, and here's how it fared:
- Sold individually
- Part of the AEM Electronics Crush Washers
- Made from high-quality aluminum material
- Comes with natural finish
- 0.563 inches crush washer hole size
- We're thankful to this washer as it helps solve the fuel rail leak that has been bothering us for weeks.
- Thumbs up for the excellent fitment of this banjo washer in the mating surfaces of the banjo, rail, and the bolt that holds the rail in place. The size of the washer perfectly fits the size of the banjo (hole) in our ride, so it kind of assures us that the washer will deliver an efficient seal.
- It would be better if it is offered in a set of at least four washers since it can be used in various applications and in different parts of the vehicles, so it pays if you have extra for when an old one broke or will be in dire need of replacement. The extra washers will also come in handy during installation of a new fuel rail.
And we say...
If the leak in your ride's fuel rail is caused by a worn-out crush or banjo washer, this one from AEM seems to be a good replacement. It may also come in handy if you are putting in a new fuel rail or replacing a rusted fuel rail bolt. It worked perfectly in our fuel rail and who knows? It might fit and work well in your ride, too.
