Had occasion to pull an injector on my 126 300sd and could not find an installed thrust washer. I have driven the car 95,000 miles without a problem and I am wondering if I should pull all the injectors to see if they all are missing the washers? Is it possible for the injectors to be installed and the engine to run all this time?

I believe you're referring to a heat shield.

Usually, they stop leaks and protect the injector.

If you aren't having issues, don't worry about it.
