    injector question

    if the cap right around the tip of the injector is cracked, will the injector leak?

    No, but the cracked tip may cause the fuel to spray randomly, which could reduce its efficiency. Next time you're at a junk yard, slip one into your sock and you'll be good to go. :banana:

      You can buy those in a kit with new O rings and spacers. Those caps are a bitch to get off. I ended up taking one of those snap-off blade utility knives and cutting through mine. The kits are cheap, and you get the O rings too. Buy 8 of them.

      I also soaked my injectors in fuel injector cleaner for a few days and blew them out with my sissy little air compressor. Didn't get much crunk out but they came out of a low mileage Towncar.
