OK, I'm convinced. Getting ready to *finally* replace OEM *manifold*
and figure its a good time to do the wires. Any suggestions on how to
save a few bucks. Any online sources? While we're at it :) how about
online sources for replacement radiators?
This is a 97 with 155 K, any input about injectors would be appreciated.
Can they be cleaned? How long are they supposed to perform well?
Look at the Bosch wires, you can find them all over the place.
If you want to clean the injectors, look for a bottle of cleaner you
hook up firectly to the fuel rail. Or run one of the many gas
I have not have any good long term luck on Bosch wires or
plugs. I know my experience is not scientific but, I have
had to replace each and every Bosch plug and wire within 6
mo of installation. With Ford's, the only satisfaction I
have had has been either Motorcraft or Autolite both of
which have roots in Ford. Motorcraft is a Ford brand and is
available in the aftermarket for much less than you will pay
at the dealer.
I wouldnt buy anything OTHER than Bosch EGO sensors, as they invented them.
But I'm not so sure about their aftermarket plug wires. Installed a set on
my Taurus and it still has SOME of the low/no load miss at low speed and
cruise that I had before I changed them.
And who made the CoilOnPlug assemblies that VW had to replace en Masse?
It wasnt Bosch, it was Bremi... but Bosch, like many others, buys from
other mfrs with their brand stamped on.
I'd think that Motorcraft brand had highest likelihood of being like OE.
And the Motorcraft OE wires I've had on mid-nineties cars have been great.
Yeh, I'm a Krusty old Geezer, putting up with my 'smartass' is the price
you pay..DEAL with it!
