    Default Unbelievable!! it's fixed......

    Got the 3rd injector kit from the dealers today and it was still light outside I thought i'd take a look at it to see if there was anything obviously wrong with the wiring. Nothing amiss so I started it up and got the usual smoke and big vibrations through the engine. I then wiggled the plug (technical term!) and noticed it had a lot more play than the others. Engine off i pulled back the yellow tab and removed the plug. On the top off the injector there should be a little wedge that the plug grips. Totally gone! Plug has nothing to grip on to so with the vibrations it been sliding back. Not enough to come off but just enough to make a bad contact. Pushed all the way back on and engine on all problems go! Can't believe it was something so simple as a tiny wedge of plastic that sheered off! Thanks to all who helped me with this, big weight off my mind now!!!
