Injector replacement questions

Anybody know how difficult it is to change injectors? How time consuming is it? What all is involved? Thanks for the help.

well it is pretty easy. If you are doing them on the pre 99 it is a little less work. No inter cooler pipes to remove.
You pull the valve covers and pull the rear injectors first you will see the cylinder fill with oil and fuel. Soak as much as possible up in rags then wait another few min. Then continue to remove the rest.
You will need to pull the glow plugs to be able to get the rest fot the oil and fuel out.
Lube the new orings up and tap them back in. You will only need to pull the bottom bolts on the injectors to remove them.
Once all the injecectors arer reinstalled with the injectors and glow plugs un hooked pu the valve cover on and crank a few revolutions to expel the oil from tne cylinders reinstall the glow plus or replace them now if they are older.
Hook everthing up and it will take some cranking to get her fired back up.
