The paper presents a results of vibration tests of common rail injectors operating in diesel engines. The most common methods of diagnosing common rail injectors (CR) as well as the most common damage of injectors of this type have been described. The results and analyzes of tests obtained during measurements on two different test stands were presented. Obtained results allowed for the preliminary determination of diagnostically sensitive parameters, which may allow the development of the injector diagnostics method without the need to stopping the engine.
