Black Death Treatment

Hi all! New member here so sorry in advance if this has been answered.

After a lot of reading about the so called "black death" I decided to take it on and swap out the injectors myself. Upon viewing the problem I found that it was injector #2. Of course my thoughts were that if I'm replacing one why not do them all to prevent another black death scenario popping up sooner. Well after doing more reading I think that was the wrong thing to do.

The old "don't fix it if it isn't broken" showed up evidently.

So where am I now? Well, I read up that all this work should be done whilst the engine was hot. So I begun work right after I had gotten home from work. Now I had just gotten 3/4 injectors out, cleaned, bolt holes wire brushed and blown out with a compressor, new seals put on injectors.

Quick side note: my black death situation is not half as bad as most. The carbon build up has barely reached the top of the injectore hole.

So after this was done I tried getting #2 out but it won't budge. (I'll be getting a puller or slide hammer today) So with that being said I put the other 3 injectors back in. But by this point I feel the engine was quite cool as it was getting late in through the night. So I started the car anyway to make sure I had done everything right. Next thing that happened was the car made a horrible noise and I switched it off straight away. I'm absolutely stumped.

Someone on another forum said it can decimate your con rod if you don't vacuum your barrels out. Another said that doing it cold is a big "no no".

Sorry again if this has been answered but after alot of reading and searching I can't find anything to help me past this point.
