After 135,000 miles, I would like to renew my fuel injectors. For a
DIYer how tough a job is it, on a 1 to 10 scale? I have just replaced
plugs, wires, and distributor cap and rotor. How do I relieve
pressure on fuel rail? Special tools? Cautions? Definitely replace O
ring seals? Any estimate of total cost? Thanks for any advice or
Yes! I'm in the same boat and would appreciate comments also. Just went
through emission testing and at high rpm HC emission is just over the limit.
Everything else is fine. At idle everything, including HC's, is good as
well. I do notice that my gas milage is not as good as I seem to remember
and the engine has about 220k on it with no work done ever. I'm guessing
I've got leaky injectors. Have changed plugs but forgot to note re their
being wet or not. Will check again though.
Forgive my ignorance. But after looking at the injectors and the
fuel tubing going to them, exactly - without breaking or damaging anything -
how does one go about removing injectors? Does on 'gently' bend/pry away
the fuel tubing feeding the injecttors, or should they be completely removed
from both ends? I assume they can be disconnected at the injectors and then
be bend away somewhat so that, after the clip holding the injector is removed
, the injector will pull out. Anything else to watch out for other than the
possible gas mess?
cheers, nd thanks for the advice so far,

All of the cars I have owned or worked on use the same principle, no
matter if it is gas or diesel, US or imported. Cut off the fuel
delivery and let engine runs until it dies from starvation.
If it is electric fuel pump, there must be a cut-off switch, fuse, or
relay. Most newer cars use relay since ECM needs to cut off the fuel
delivery in case of accident. If it is mechanical like MB diesel
(sorry, the only mechanical pump I know), there is a lever on the
