Thanks for your time today
I noticed one of my fuel injectors leaking to the point where there is a small wet section on my lower intake, not a puddle but it is wet where the injector goes into the intake so to get at them all I took the upper intake off, I also noticed a couple others that were slightly wet near the top of the injector / where the fuel rail and injector come together. Only one was really wet all the way to the bottom but at the same time none of them appear to act like my lawn sprinkler when the car is runnin. I was worried about creating a fire even with the slight leak, I have seen carbs backfire and look like a BBQ Grill so the last thing I want is to cook one of my favorite toys from a leaking injector.
I took the fuel rails off (they are not bent or out of shape) and removed the injector that I noticed leaking, the injector looks fine, it doesnt appear to be broken. The o-rings on top and bottom of the injector look fine, no cracks but that doesnt mean they dont need to be replaced. I have to LOL at how they go into the intake. Call me nieve and this is the first injected car I have worked on myself but I expected them to screw in not just depend on an o-ring and the fuel rail to hold the injector in place.
Anyway My question is since I feel the injector is leaking from the o-rings should I just replace the o-rings and put it back together or drop $200 on new injectors? I hate like hell to replace them since the car runs great and I plan adding some mods / 24lb injectors in about 6 months. I am still researching the project at the moment so I would like to avoid buying injectors right now if possible.
Any feed back or past experiences on this topic would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks again, Have a Good One
PS looking at the motor with no upper intake makes me want to bolt a carb on and go old school
