    Ageing fuel injection systems.

    Hi Guys,

    I noticed a petrol smell from the CX a couple of days ago, it turns out No: 4 injector was dripping petrol (Bloody lucky the CX's have cross flow heads, I imagine petrol dripping onto hot monifolds and red hot turbos would make a toasty fire ). The seals were quite hard on both sides of the injectors. For the incredible cost of 50cents each I bought some new seals for them from the local injection place. Could be a worthwhile change for everyone with aging injected cars to make.

    Also noticed the fuel pressure guage that I fitted a while back to get me out of trouble is playing up, the fuel pressure changes from 40-50psi pounds so fast the guages needle is a blur. I must order in a newie soon
