Leaky injector
#1
Hi folks,
One injector on 56 plate 1.6hdi getting progressively leakier at the mo, tried tightening the bugger up and that worked a while.
The thing itself seems to function fairly well once things are warm.
I assume what I need getting done is new injector seal and potentially recut seat...is that about right? Also how much is reasonable to be charged for this? The other 3 are sound so not going to interfere with em.

Cheers

The job can be a little labour intensive because although leaking they can be a bugger to get out.

But i would have thought £150 would cover it or a bit less if the injector comes out easy.

Insist on a recut seat and an oil change at the same time.

Thanks polar, that's a reassurance, in my mind I was making it out to be a bigger, dearer job than that - will stop putting it off and get it sorted

We charge about £90 + vat to remove the injector, recut the seat & refit with new seals etc.

Thanks folks, it turns out that whilst 1 injector was leaking, it now isn't - suspect as a result of me tightening its bolts a bit. Still has a load of black gunge round it but can live with that. Am running through half a tank with wurth cr injector cleaner in at the moment - it's already stopped stumbling when cold, and seems much smoother overall. Seems I was fearing the worst as I tend to do!

Thanks polar, that's what I read before tightening the bolts. Does kinda make me wish I'd read it before buying the thing as would have gone for the 2 litre...but have put a shade over 20k on it without anything too unexpected falling off, and will probably add plenty more, so can't really complain for a 2 and a bit k car

Once the leaking injectors have been done you should be okay for many hassle free miles the 1.6 is generally a good engine.
