    Default injectors seal issue?

    so... no1 and no4 cylinder outside tolerances on injector test, i can see small amount of smoke cominf from cylinder 1... does this smell of seal failure?

    there is a missfire, and ive noticed a drop in economy also.

    usual mods and fixes have been done.

    cheers

    Do you have gunk around the injector? My injector seals went on my 1.4tdci fiesta and the one that had gone had carbon sludge all around it.
