    Default Technical Advice Needed Please

    Hello all, as per title im after some advice.

    My car has been juddering on tickover for a while now and ive just grinned and bared it. After reading through the forum i was confident it was the injectors so i took it down to my mates garage and he performed a leak off test that showed i had 3 knackered injectors

    Ive bought 4 second hand injectors that my mate is going to fit for me, now, this is the question.

    Hes got a snap on fault code reader that he can reset things with, im wanting to know if this will be ok to get my injectors reset to my car or am i going to have my pants down and shafted by the local stealers ??

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    I think that you wil need to code the injectors to the car, each of the injectors should have a number on the top of them, this is what you will need to code in.
    A code reader won't do this, Tech2, Op-Com, Vaux-Com etc.

    Permission to do what?
    You own the vehicle so can do with it as you wish and instruct any mechanic to perform maintenance

    As a 2005 Vectra, is it covered by Network Q?
    That is the only reason I would think they would need to "obtain permission"

    What engine do you have?

    Some Snap-on code readers will allow you to code (Its not just resetting) the injectors to your car.

    Also anyone with Tech2, Vaux-Com type software should be able to do it too.
