Common Injector Related Issues


Once again the diagnostic prospects on this engine is good but as always is wholly dependent upon the quality of the tool used.

Injector seal failure

Probably one of the most common failures on these engines is the copper injector washer or seal, most recognizable by the build up of carbon around the injector with the leak.

The first photo shows the grooves cut into the washer when the driver continues to use the vehicle without repair not realizing the damage this can cause. The second Photo shows

the obvious build up of carbon from the leak this is usually accompanied by a smell of fuel or exhaust fumes.


Continuing to drive a vehicle with a seal leaking can in the worst case destroy an injector or even a cylinder head, meaning big bills. plus the added carbon build up can even destroy the whole engine , something which is common to these vehicles, by blocking pipes and filters, reducing the oil flow around the engine and destroying bearings.

Injector failure

These injectors are usually good being Solenoid, failure is most commonly down to overheating of the tip jamming the needle, usually caused by blow-past of the injector seals,

a further incidental fault caused by the seals leaking is a groove cut into the sealing seat caused by the high pressure gases forcing their way through the gap, in conjunction with this and the most common giveaway that this is happening is the visible carbon build up around the offending injector (black death) along with the smell of fuel leaking into the passenger cabin area.

Injector seizure

These injectors can be excessively tight and require dismantling to allow a decent puller to be fitted to remove them,

The cause usually being corrosion between the injector body and the cylinder head / liner tube.

Injector liner / tube

The liner tube commonly comes out with tight injectors, requiring a whole different set of tools to refit them correctly. New tubes are required as the old tube is usually seized onto the old injector body 

and is not reusable as attempts at removal from the injector usually damage it beyond repair. We have the facilities to fit new tubes when required and keep a stock of both the tubes and the seals for this purpose. As far as the dealers are concerned at the time of writing where a tube comes out, a new cylinder head is required as they have no facilities to refit tubes.
