Injector change

Does anyone have a good link on rebuilding injectors and or replacing them as a DIY I was thinking about doing mine and I was wondering how hard of a job is it or should this go to the pros?

I doubt that you would even wnat to try rebuilding them youself. Extreamly close tolerances and lots of special tools and equipment involved unless you want to just "throw them together" which will be a never ending job

Injector change

Yes ... The rebuilding is not really a DIY kinda thing. Now as for replacing them, that's not too hard. Just have to take ur time and don't forget to pull ur glow plugs to purge the oil from ur cylinders before putting it back together and starting it

Re: Injector change

About a year ago a buddy of mine had about $3k in parts and labor for injectors and some other related issues at a local shop. Not a dealer. Might have included injector control module? I would have to ask him for details. He is a penny pincher and is happy with the results.

I just replaced the o-rings on my injectors. It made a very dramatic difference in startup, smoothness, responsiveness and overall power. Wish I would have replaced them a long time ago.
