Rusty fuel injectors!

Just for interests sake... here are some pics of the worst case of fuel system neglect I have seen... these pictures are from a customers truck... a 2007 with only 35,000km on the odometer!!

Fuel Filter:



All eight injectors are rusted between the fuel rail o-rings!

yes... for a long time according to the "driver" of the truck, who wasn't the "owner" of the truck

When I pulled the plug for the water separator... nothing came out! I kinda said WTF?? to myself... then poked my allen wrench into the hole... chunky brown craps started to come out slowly... then more and more as I dredged around in there. I ended up taking the cover off the water separator to clean it out... after cleaning the water separator I changed fuel filters... cleaned the filter housing (the top one was ok... the lower filter caught all the junk). Then the next step was eight new fuel injectors

when that light comes on, you should basically drain it instantly and change both fuel filters again. if it keeps happening, the fuel station has water in their tank.

seeing that the wif was on, the fuel system sat in water for awhile.

Yes... the filters and water separator were ignored, the water separator continued to collect water until it could no longer collect any more... water then found it's way past the filters and into the fuel system where it obviously sat for quite some time to rust the injectors like it has.

This truck was being operated this way for some time, the only symptoms were a continuous WIF light, very rough cold starts, and the driver said it was down on power compared to their other 6.0 trucks. oh... really??

I'm not saying they are the same, given the OP is in Canada, but these look in similar condition, maybe worse!

Would these even qualify as cores?
