Injector Servicing

Postby buddster » 19 Jul 2002, 23:29

Hi there,
Can anyone recommend a decent service centre to service my 1.9TD injectors or, am I better off getting reconditioned ones. Also, does anywhere service fuel pumps or turbo's or am I best getting reconditioned itmes?
Cheers.

Are you sure your injectors need servicing? Before going to any expense why not give a couple of bottles of injector cleaner a try. My BXTZD (which I have just handed on) at 11 years old and 120K miles is still running well on its original squirters, having had the occasional treatment of Redex diesel. Any service centre checking injectors would also be able to service a pump. Where are you situated?

Agree with above - my old BX did 170,000 (and is still going strong at over 200k) and present one has done 140k without pump or injectors being touched. I use Millers dieselclean (when I can find it) and when car has been a little smoky this seems to cure it. They say it also cleans and lubricates the whole fuel sysem including the pump.

I'm situated in Surrey. Engine has done 120,000 miles and have used redex in the past. Just recently though, poor tick over and lack of power. Just thought I'd get them checked.

Does no harm in checking the injectors, i have a ZXTD Volcane with 102,000 on the clock, as a matter of routine maintenance, i removed the injectors and had them checked and cleaned only to find the nozzle tips were shot. I used Malvern Diesel (in Malvern, Worcs) who were excellent, they replaced the tips and cleaned them thoroughly so they looked like new on return for just £22.50 inc. The car now starts on all cylinders simultaneously and smokes very little - money well spent i think.

As you live in Surrey, and if you are sure you need the injectors looked at, try First Diesel Injection in Thornton Road, Croydon. (Tel. 02086891806)

[/quote]Andy you said it cost you about £22 plus v.a.t to have your injectors serviced, was that per injector or for all four. You can buy recon injectors for around £30-35each.

Message for Gareth.
Yes, £22.50+vat was what i was charged for EACH injector and they came back looking like new - only took an hour to do as well.
Well worth doing!
