Replace Injector Seals?
I'm having an occasional hard start, and I definately have a stiction issue. I'm going to do some injector/oil rail maintenance in the next week or two and I'm looking for some advice as I get ready.
I'm going to pull the injectors and replace the o-rings and copper washers, pull the spool valves and clean them with 600 grit to get rid of stiction, and replace standpipes and dummy plugs.
Should I replace the injector seals too? I haven't heard of them going bad, and I know sometimes pulling everything apart I can cause more problems than I started with.
Any advice is much appreciated!
I'll keep you all posted as to whether or not this solves my occasional hard start problem.
