Injectors and B9 series.....
#1
Hi all,

I've had a 2006 Muntispace for the past 4 years.  The versatility is great and the carrying capacity is even better.  Alas, I'm having problems with a leaky injector and it will not budge.  Even a dealer can't shift it.  The fuel economy and engine performance are still very good despite the leak. I would happily leave the offending injector alone but there are bad fumes coming into the cabin on account of it. I'm going to have a final swing at it at the weekend. If I have no success, I really don't want to get into stripping the head off etc. The mileage is high and I'm not willing to spend that kind of money or time.

I think it's time to change car.  How does the B9 series (from 2008 on) compare in terms of engine reliability?  Is it the same engine as the 2006 model or a new unit?  Any information will be appreciated.

Cheers,

PC

It's a new 8 valve unit from about 2011 I think. I've got a 2009 from new on 80k miles & it's been trouble free apart from failed egr valve. Always serviced at Cit garage with correct Total ineo ecs oil used. Egr valve failed at 35k miles & Cit mechanic asked if I had been using supermarket diesel. I had all the time. He said best to use mostly branded fuel as more additives in them so I have done that since. If you are buying secondhand then full Cit garage service history will at least ensure correct oil has been used which is important.
