Will I trash my fuel injectors if I do this?

Page 2 of 2  


I will not discourage you from posting here. Some people I would. I have no problem with you posting your point of views at all.
I work on a number of cars where people have not had the proper tools, and have damaged things. It tends to tweak my biskets, so to speak.
Just like people who say they can work on old cars, but not the newer computerized cars. Sure you have to learn a few new tricks. Sure newer cars have less room to access things mechanically. Yet the same basics of mechanics still apply.
Sometimes I get carried away and my posts come off very rude. Especially after a bad day, or a hard day. If I offended you, I am sorry. Charles

Wanna play? Gotta pay. That's the bottom line.
Car repair is no longer "grease monkeying" or "turning wrenches". It's precision, hard, technical work.
Those that can do it, will profit and profit well. Those that can't just make work for the rest of the folks that can and make them even more money :).

A prophetic truth to that statement:
In the trenches, we get cars that the neighbor of the customer. Who is "Good" with cars, broke a plug housing on an injector, or pulled the wires out of the socket for the injector.
It's our job as professionals to stock the connectors for that socket, also the special crimpers and rubber boots for the plug. Then know where to locate the injectors, install the injector. Then do an injector balance test, which the neighbor knew nothing about, then tells the customer we ripped him off, after we fixed his screw up!

Yeah. No problem. I think you mostly have good info to share in here and I am glad you do.

Better known as a pulse tester. As noted they are all over the place. Also, Autozone may rent it for free as part of their tool rental program. Worth a shot.

Thank you!
I made a typo when I sent out my first post at $450.00, this shit wireless keyboard. Look where the dollar sign is, and where the 4 is.
LOL
Excuses, Excuses!

Follow up...
The test worked somewhat well, but without the pulser, it wasn't necessarily accurate. It did give me a good indication of balance though. Injector On for 1 sec bleeds about 26lbs. All injectors were +/-1lb from each other. So, I don't think I have an obviously and completely clogged injector. The pulser would have been handy though to give an accurate reading of pph.
Either way, I now think I have a leaking injector. It bleeds off all pressure in about 3 hours.

Yes Joe; if. If. But once again, I believe (and I could be mistaken) that the answer to the question could have been obtained without breaking all the injectors. Also, OEM is not always necessary. Sometimes after market stuff is better than OEM, and sometimes it is far worse (or so the prevailing wisdom seems to be). I'm not a mechanic so I don't have a clue if that's true. I was going by what was said by others who seemed to know more than me.
