2002 ex with 145000 miles, Im 1200 miles from home and im getting fuel in the overflow, Could I drive it home? It's not overheating? Local garage said it needs $3000 worth of injector cups. parts and labor. HELP
you can do it, its going to stink a LOT, but I have seen them driven farther than that with this problem. However, the flip side is this. When its running, you are pushing fuel into the cooling system. When you shut it off, and the cooling pressure becomes higher than the fuel pressure, it starts pushing coolant into the fuel.
CAT engines have the same problem on the 3406E series, in fact, they have this problem a lot. And when you pull the injectors after it cools, you can see the coolant in the injector passages. So, that is something to think about.
