Question Injector removal.

What's the trick to getting the injectors out of the fuel rail?

I'm trying to find out why I've got a misfire and want to swap the misfiring cylinder's injector with another cylinder's to see if the code follows, that's all.

I saw I had to unscrew the metal caps and unplug the harness, but couldn't figure out what more it needed before giving up.

Thanks.

-Brett

EDIT: This is on a '97 EJ22.

I have a 98 legacy gt and all I had to do was just pull them out. I was really tuff but that's all you have to do after you unscrew the caps. I had to use pliers and being very careful. Also use some lube to put them back in the fuel rail. You can use just regular (clean) motor oil. It burns off after some run time, besides your only using a little bit on your finger to smear around the gaskets.

Spray a little WD40 in after taking off the caps (sidefeed right?) and work the injectors around some. They'll come out eventually....it takes some effort at first, then your fingers get bloodied and numb and you don't care anymore.

If you pull the fuel rails, you can simply stick the end of the injector on the edge of a table, tap the fuel rail sharply, and the injector will pop out. Done this many, many times.

What a perfectly appropriate topic. I was just trying to remove a set of side feed injectors last night. WOW they just don't want to come out.

So, just pull harder and use some wd-40 huh?

Ok I'll give it a shot.

Thanks guys.

I vote again for fuel rail removal. I have crushed an injector or two trying to pull them out.......

Well, I am going to hold off on this, since I haven't gotten a misfire code since I SeaFoamed this bitch the other day. If I get it again, I'll get to pulling these injectors. But thanks to all so far.
