    the timingbelt adjuster was changed and car now cuts after a few miles and will not not start unless the injector switch is pulled and reconnected. I was told when the adjuster for the timingbelt was installed it was not don properly and that damaged the injectors. Is that true or I'm being taking for a ride.

Absolutely nothing at all... if the timing belt wasnt installed properly it would bend valves or run rough.. but NOT have a thing to do with fuel injection system

How to remove the fuel injectors on 350 cummins

only remove fuel injectors after you have properly marked all the fuel pipes for what cylinder to go to (it matters!!) also carefully bleed off high pressure fuel from lines before removing them all the way (watch your eyes!!) use only a six sided socket to remove fuel injectors or you may damage them , try to avoid using an "IMpact" gun to remove , and allways reinstall with using a torque wrench to assure proper tightness , make sure you get fuel lines back exactly on new injectors exactly as you took them off , its also a good idea to replace glow plugs if equipped at same time

I don't know much about cars but have been told to clean my injectors. Where exactly are they?? I have a 2003 Nissan Terrano

Write your answer...dear the injector comes under the fuel line.its after the fuel filter. and you can not clean the injector as it needs proper tools its better clean with a automobile fuel callibrators workshop.however you can clean the fule filter or replace with the tools available for general maintenance.

Fuel injector problems

Never heard of what your saying

You were told something you don't understand
about drive cycles & if they are required a shop
is to look up that procedure & do it for you before
giving you the car back

They don't know what their doing ,period

Your car was not diagnosed properly for your original
drivabiltiy complaint

They may have found & replace something that wasn't
as it should be, but it should have run as poorly for them
as it does for you,should it not

If that was a dealer,they may have never road tested it

There are no drive cycles that require any miles to relearn
& no relearn for an injector

Need to get back to them on what you were told,but your
not responsible to drive any distance,pure nonsense &
sloppy work & untrue advice

88 300zx Replaced timingbelt, plug's, fuel pressure is 50 lb, new fuel rails new injectors timed right, the old timing belt was bad for about 5 inch section and the right hand cam was out of time...

remove timing belt and move crank shaft and cam shaft tiltiming marks are in the rigt places, put belt back on making sure not to move either pulley, being that far out of time should not cause any internal damages, but will prevent vehicle from starting.

I start my vehicle, its turns over then cuts off. I have to pump the gas to get it to stay on. it stays on when driving. is it a fuel injector or pump issue? i was told it may be just gunk and needs fuel...

You can try the fuel cleaner but more then likely, it is something other then that. Check the fuek pump and make sure it is working correctly. Test the wires. It should be 12 V. Follow the line down to the fuel filter and check that. Make sure fuel is getting to the filter. The filter may be clogged. If that checks out, follow the gas lines down and make sure there are no leaks or damage. Next, move to the injectors. Make sure they are working properly. Check the fuel regulator as well. You should find your problem at one of these points. If you have a question, let me know. I am here to help in anyway I can. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Have you replaced the spark plugs?? Use good plugs such as ngk. Look for signs of carbon tracking on porcelain (black dirt looking marks that can NOT be wiped off. If present replace spark plug and coil boot to repair.
