The only way for fuel to access the coolant is by bypassing the brass cups between the injectors and the heads.

There is a tool to remove those cups, but one of our techs could tell you more about that.

you cant just go buy that tool somewhere ,you may find the kit on ebay , or may ask around and find someone that has the tools , the tool guys dont keep them either, and there is an installer to reinstall the new cup as well, the hardest job is finding out which injector cup is the culprit , if this job is not done correctly, further problems may follow
