    I recently had my #4 injector replaced. When I drove home from the garage, there was white smoke coming out of the tailpipes. When I got home, all of the gas was burned to empty. I have started it up and it has a 2 -3 inch grey or white smoke and I think it is gas that is coming out. I do not know what to do? I do not want to drive it until I can find out what is wrong with it, any help would be great!

2002 fatboy fuel injected replace crank sensor coil plugs injectors repaired harness keeps dumping fuel in rear cylinder


injectors are sealed where they go in the manifold by "O" rings
If you didn't use new "O" rings when replacing the injectors or used lubricant like grease to help install the injector through the rings ,it is possible that fuel pressure is allowing fuel past the injector tip into the cylinder.

My 2000 ford expedition fuel injectors are spitting out gas after I changed spark plugs on the 5,6,7,8 cylinder side. I tried to make sure all the lines were pushed down secure before tightening the...


If the fuel rail is not seated down where it was this will happen. I put some lubricant on the o-rings to make sure the injectors fit in the rail all the way, try twisting the injectors also while the rail is pushed down. Also you might need to change the o-rings on the top of the injectors. I hope this helped you.

I need to replace the #2 fuel injector. Is this something a layman such as I can accomplish?


You could do it, but remember gasoline is flammable and volatile and can be hazardous to work with: REMOVAL AND INSTALLATION 1.9L Engines
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  3. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Negative battery cable
    • Fuel rail
    • Fuel injector retaining clip off the injector
    • Fuel injector
    • Fuel injector O-rings and discard them Fig. 1: Fuel injector identification-1.9L engine 9306zg58.gif
    To install: NOTE: The SOHC and DOHC fuel injectors are not interchangeable. The injectors are identified by a color coded plastic ring near the bottom of the injector. The SOHC injector has a blue ring near the O-ring that mates to the intake manifold and the DOHC has a pink ring.
  4. Lubricate the new fuel injector O-ring with clean engine oil.
  5. Install or connect the following:
    • New O-ring seals on the fuel injector
    • Retaining clip to the fuel injector
    • Fuel injector to the fuel rail
    • Fuel rail
    • Negative battery cable
  6. Start the vehicle and check for leaks, repair if necessary.

Facing front of 7.3 diesel, fuel is leaking at right front fuel injector,,,looks like the banjo fitting,,,what seals this fitting as it can be twisted by hand??


You'll need to pick up an injector install kit for around $40. There are two sizes depending on the size fuel line that runs between your injectors so don't open the bag the kit comes in, until you compare the contents of the kit with whats on your motor. The kit will have new fuel line, clamps, plastic caps and o-rings. Once you remove the fuel line from the pump and then the fuel line between injectors, you can pull the plastic caps off and then remove the old o-rings. Reverse this order to install the new kit.

My 2001 chevy blazer (v-6, 4.3L)., has a fuel injector problem and I would like to know how to repair the number 5 injector.


You will need to remove the fuel rail bolted to the intake manifold. There maybe a clip holding on the injector. Spraying some WD-40 on the ends of the injectors to aid removal, also when installing, spray some on the O-rings, will help in installing them. Make sure all are seated.

300zx leaking fuel injector


You need to lubricate the o ring prior to fitting the injector. Without the lubrication the injector does not slide into the fitting and can roll in the groove and get snagged and damaged. A thin film of engine oil will fix it but also check the sleeve where the injector sits in case it has a burr or was nicked during the removal process first time.

How to replace the fuel injectors on a 2002 Tahoe?


To Install:
  1. Lubricate the NEW fuel injector O-rings with clean engine oil.
  2. Install the O-rings on the fuel injector.
  3. Install a NEW retainer clip on the fuel injector.
  4. Install the fuel injector in the injector socket with the electrical connector facing outward. The retainer clip locks onto a flange at the fuel rail injector socket.
  5. Install the fuel rail.
NOTE: Use care in removing the fuel injectors in order to prevent damage to the electrical connector pins on the injector and to prevent damage to the nozzle. Service the fuel injector as a complete assembly only. The fuel injector is an electrical component. DO NOT immerse the fuel injector in any type of cleaner.
