Fuel injector servicing/cleaning

Post by BladeRunner919 » Tue 31 Jan, 2017 11:15

I'd like to get my injectors cleaned and serviced, and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for companies that can do it?

Cheers!

Wouldn't a bottle of Redex do the trick?

I bought a `new set' through http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/bavarianwerke ... 2749.l2754 .

Cost me ~£68 for the M44 - very good service - no problems - you get an individual video of the calibration checks.

You could always clean them yourself, have a look on Youtube, loads of how to guides on there, here is one

I want them properly cleaned and flow checked. Redex won't tell me if there's a leaky injector or some other problem that a proper service will. There are places online that you can send the injectors off to, I was just hoping that someone had a recommendation for one.

Probably a good job to get done on our Z3s which are now older cars - plus replacing the sealing o-rings.

Is there a problem with the running of the engine? If not l'm not sure l'd start pulling the injectors out. There's a lot of this discussion on the Land Rover forum regarding TD5 injectors.
The advice there is, unless there is a problem, leave them alone. The ECU can compensate for minor calibration issues.
