There is a special tool for removing the injectors that the dealerships have. However, you may be able to remove them by using a long pry bar. The injector will pop up when you get them loose. One special note. Sometimes the injector cup will come out with the injector. Try to remove the cup without damaging it. Get some injector cup o-rings and some red lock tight. Put the new o-rings on the cup and apply some grease to the o-rings. At the tip of the cup apply the lock tight. Push the cup into the injector hole and with a rubber hammer tap in down flush with the head. Replacing the injectors is a long and tedious job but take your time and remember where everything goes. Once you get everything back together, prime the fuel system until your arm gets tired and then prime it some more. Have someone crank the truck while you continue to prime the engine. Once the engine starts running, prime for about 30 seconds more and you should be good to go. I hope this has been helpful.

After my car sets for an hour or so. Ill start it its slow to start sometimes dies. Then i smell gas under the hood. Does anyone have any suggestions.

Hi Sean, I'm glad to help!

Sean, the only suggestion I can give in this case is. It sounds like it may be flooding out. This could be because of leaking injectors. What happens is when you turn the engine off the injector will continue to leak into the cylinder until there is an abundance of gas then when you try to start the engine the gas needs to clear before it will start and your smelling all that raw fuel being pushed out of the tail pipe. If you are mechanically inclined then remove the fuel rail and while watching the tips turn the key to the on position. CAUTION: DO NOT try to start the engine, simply turn the key to the on position. If one are more injectors are leaking after turning the key off then replace the leaking injectors. NOTE: Sometimes carbon build-up on the injector tip will also cause then to leak. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Sean.

How to change the02 sensors on a 2003 buick rendevzous

The O2 sensor on your Buick is located on the rear (under windshield cowl side of your exhaust manifold...You might be able to spray injector cleaner on it after removal...use PB Blaster to lubricate before removing the nut...also have you tried running some gas tank fuel injector cleaner in your gas tank recently? Sometimes this will help the sensor to work properly. To clear your "check engine light" you need to disconnect the positive side of your battery cable for about 15 minutes, then reconnect...the light should stay off if all is OK...Hope this helps.

Hello.. looks like you are getting good fuel delivery. Is the fuel curve mixture on the scanner in specs? How is the timing, the timing chains on these engines will stretch and throw the timing off causing a ping and missfire -- a weak valve spring is something to consider. Also, the PCM may be faulty. I hope this helps.

2003 jaguar xtype...2.5 v6 looking for commen concerns due to lean inidaction codes... banks 1 and 2. long fuel trims are at 19.5. hot wire at maf was covered in dust...? car runs bad in the...

Seems you might need the injectors cleaned.

Jaguar uses a SUN cleaning system on the car but it is better if the injectors are removed and sent to a company with an ASNU injector cleaner.

These 'Shower Head' injectors seem to clog easily. Some were made by Lucas and others by DENSO.

I did one with less than 17,000 miles on it last year.

Positive STFT and LTFT numbers indicate a gross reduction in delivered fuel.

Up to 9% STFT acceptable with 0 LTFT..

STFT should toggle from 0% to 7% on a good system.

If LTFT above 5% you need to find the problem.

Most companies charge around $20.00 per injector with new O rings supplied.
System is Adaptive and needs a whole tank of fuel to adapt to a steady state.
