rebuilt fuel injectors...now knocking
yeah you read it. I cleaned my bosch FI for my 1984 190D 2.2L (with kent bergsmas book). I wanted the results to be....
1. Less smoke out of tailpipe
2. smooth starting engine
3. engine that sounds and runs smooth
1. Same amount of smoke
2. Smooth starting? yeah a little better
3. sounds and runs smooth? I got a lot of knocking and I could not tell if it ran smoother than before...so it must not have made that much of a difference.
after the cleaning I wanted to stand back and really see her purr...Is the knocking after cleaning pretty standard?
