Order the injectors, sleeves and new O-rings from a good internet provider. You can save half the expense of dealer cost. Process of installing is simple. You remove the rubber manifold on each side of the manifold, remove the injector lines (never mind remembering which line to which injector, they all squirt simultaneously), pull out each injector and sleeve and replace. Don't forget new O-rings on the sleeves. It really is simple. You may want to get a good air compressor to blow all debris away before removing the old injectors. Contact me if you have anymore questions, [email protected]

Shane,<br> <br> You can get injectors, injector nozzle tip seals, sleeves, and O-Rings (when you order parts, I think O-Rings come together with sleeves, I replaced mine few months ago).<br> <br> List of part #'s:<br> <br> Injector: 000-078-56-23<br> Injector holder: 117-070-04-55<br> Injector nozzle tip seal: 116-070-00-77<br> <br> Remove the rubber hoses (called idle air distribution lines) sitting along the valve cover, one on each side, they are black in color. It is good time to replace them too since they sit in heat source years, so they become hardened. If you brake these, there is no way you can get your idle speed. It happened to me once! The part number is: 116-094-09-82 (around $8.00/hose)<br> Use 14mm open wrench to unscrew the connection from the fuel line to the injector then slightly lift the fuel line up to clear way for the injector. Pull the injector up, it will come up with or without the holder. If the nozzle holder doesn't come up, use a pair of pliers to pull it up, make sure that the green O-Ring comes out too.<br> Up to here, I think you know how install the new injectors. You had better replace one by one. The parts, you can get at www.thebenzbin.com. If you order over $50.00, you will get free shipping via UPS.<br> <br> Good luck!
