I bought a set of injectors several years back and one leaked as described and hydrolocked my engine. Fortunately, it did not bend a rod. Whew! But it pisses me off products are put out that can damage your engine. I pulled my fuel rail and turned key in first position to charge fuel pressure and it just dripped out of one. I guess I got lucky. But this taught me a lesson that if I ever do another injector job, I will look for leaking injectors before I reinsert rail.
