    Default Injector Seals - Leeds area

    Hi,

    Can anyone recommend a garage in the Leeds area that will replace the injector seals in my 2.0 DTi Signum without taking the mick on the price?
    I'm fairly sure they need doing, I have what looks like engine oil in the fuel filter and if the car is parked even slightly uphill overnight it doesn't start (had to tow start it last time!).
    The leak off pipes don't appear to have any diesel collecting around them, so I've ruled these out as the air leak...though will probably get these replaced to be sure when I get the injector seals done.
    Finally, any advice on how urgent a job this is? As long as I park with nose down hill I have no starting issues, mpg is ok and I need to top up the oil a litre or so every 5k miles which seems reasonable.
    I've read that two-stroke oil is a popular fuel additive, so I'm guessing the small amount of engine oil in the diesel isn't going to kill anything...might even help the oil pump? Or am I being too optimistic here
    Thanks!

    Cheers, I'll give them a try and see what they say.
    Do you know if it is something I should look at doing urgently to save further damage?
