Tapperty sounding engine/fumes in cabin

So a few weeks ago the vans power went down, the engine started sounded very tapperty, and fumes started coming the cabin. Got her home and local mechanic agreed with the breakdown guy it was a leaking injector.

Had new seals fitted to the forth one, and some metal parts above were cracked which were replaced along with the pipe that runs along the top (no i'm not a mechanic!) - she's been running better than ever until tonight, on motorway noticed power down, tapperty noise and fumes again, i'll see what he sayes after the weekend bit wondered if you guys had any ideas? May the injector should have been replaced etc?

Sounds like your " mechanic" didnt re-seat the injector, just replaced the seal....get him to do it properly next time...FOC of course...
