    Re: Fuel Injectors

    To ad on to Scott's tip, I always use a very light coat of die-electric grease, it makes it easier to seat the seals without them ripping, rolling the seal. And (knock on wood) I haven't had any problems with leaks, or running issues if a little over the nozzle of the injector.

    And also ad to relieving the system of pressure, yes pulling the fuel pump fuse/relay, then running the vehicle till is stalls will work 99.9% of the time. I also recommend removing the fuel cap, as the tank is always building pressure from the fumes. Otherwise most times, it will constantly has slight pressure in the tank, and cause the "how much fuel could be in this line?!" trickle of fuel coming from the feed line. That will seem never ending.

    I dont personally follow the steps for relieving the initial line pressure. I usually just crack the line loose, and let it slowly bleed off. But my first step is to always remove the fuel cap, and release tank pressure.

    The video also suggests using dielectric grease and I know you had to use lubricant to avoid tearing the o-rings. Also remember reading opening the gas cap. Thanks for all the pointers.

    Haha, that's my strategy. I'm always too lazy/rushed to do it the correct way. I just crack the line and it leaks for a few seconds but nothing crazy. Once the fuel pump is off any pressure in the fuel system is so minor it doesn't even read on a fuel pressure gauge anyway.
