    Default new injectors

    had a injector fail last week at only 2,900 miles, car been took back to the stealers, got a call today to say that they are going to change all injectors as it is not practical to change only 1, is this common practise ?

    veccy 1.9 cdti 150 by the way.

    It might be easier for them as it is under warrenty they just change the lot, instead of trying to find the faulty one.

    Surely they can detect which cylinder has mis-fired, or has faulty injector??

    I'd be very surprised if they couldn't by using Tec2.

    We can on our latest diesel engines.

    AA man diagnosed number 2 injector as the faulty one garage also agreed with that so i thought they would have changed only that one, then they phone me to say they have ordered a full set and will be changing all of them.

    Injectors have had a slight change hence the full swap.

    Fuel rail has also changed.
