Thys Posted February 12, 2008 Share Posted February 12, 2008 After my sock experience, and the subsequint repairs, my Discovry really ran like clockwork. however I noted an ever increasing plume of grey/black smoke when idling, and an ever increasing plume of black smoke when she works hard. The final came on Sunday when exiting the freeway, she made some loud knocking noise and lost power. I nursed her home, and checked the valve movement, valve clearances, everythins was to spec. Then started the engine and cheked the injectors, found number 2 blocked. I then removed all four and found them nearly as bad. The previous owner was charged for replacing the injectors, less than a year ago. 10000km later, and the injectors were really shot. The repair expert cleaned the injectors, and charged for new ones. Got the Bosch injectors from non steales at a quarter of the price. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
