Common Injector related issues

Being solenoid injectors they are predominantly very reliable and usually require removal when the camshaft timing belt fails to allow removal of the cam cover and access to the sacrificial rockers which usually fail as a consequence of belt failure, other reasons for removal are wear and tear, mis-fueling or head gasket failure.

Cam belt failure

Cam belt failure is the most popular cause of injector removal and although the lifespan of these belts was originally 100,00 miles this was dramatically reduced very quickly due to water dripping onto the belt, it is highly recommended to have the belts changed long before they are due and immediately if you don't know when it was last done, don't risk it belt failure is writing off many of these otherwise roadworthy and popular vehicles.

Injector seizure 

It is very common for these injectors to seize into the cylinder head and unfortunately this is probably the worst one we do. We regularly apply around 20 tons of force to remove these injectors and some times they are so tight the just snap in half, this is an unavoidable consequence of the forces required. it is very important to use the correct equipment and universal tools must be avoided. Any damage to the injectors prior to attempted pulling can dramatically reduce the success, although we are still 95%+ successful
Due to restricted access a large amount of ancillary's need to be removed for access or preferably the engine needs to be out of the vehicle. Due to the forces required it is also common for the injectors to stretch making them non reusable and effectively scrap.



Injector bolts

Two bolts hold each injector and due to their size are very weak it is recommended to replace these each time they are removed, they do not usually seize in.

fuel leaks

This engine is not known for fuel leaks

Wiring issues

The wires on this engine can chaff through if badly routed 

A  P Autodiagnostics Ltd 

We are fully equipt to remove injectors to all the above vehicles and can also supply  brand new genuine replacement injectors or reconditioned units to order. Removal can require the stripping off of all plastics from the top of the engine and on some vehicles the wipers and scuttle panel below the windscreen, engine mountings etc
