    rolleyes injector leaking

    After fitting my new battery tonight and started engine i could hear a strange noise which i hadnt heard before coming from the engine like a spurt of air every second, so i removed the cover and found that no1 injector is leaking (oily all around injector and bubbling when air is released),
    So i will be taking it to my local garage to see what its going to cost hopefully just needs copper washer replacing under injector,at what price i havent got a clue.
    Any ideas on price anyone ?

    Or a couple of quid for the washers and half hour of your own time...

    A simple job, but i wouldnt recommend doing it yourself incase you 'over cut' the injector seat in the cylinder head, the problem will come back if you just replace the washer.

    We recommend a new injector at work as they lift off the seat as not spraying correctly. Hope it comes out as they can be a nightmare if not. Good luck to ya. Did the wiring or spill pipes look burnt as this can be extra cost.

    No wiring burnt! Phoned my garage this morning and explained and told me it would be £45 plus cost of seals,sounds good to me.
