Re: [DML] Cleaning Fuel Injectors



Paul

These things are easy enough to change, little bit fiddly on the left 
hand side of the engine due to the ISM  ( Idle Speed Motor )and Cold 
Start pipe etc being in the way but not difficult at all , if you 
move the ISM  out of the way first this off first. If you are going 
to replace the spart plug wires and plugs at the same time then all 
the better that way you can route them all back 'nice and tidy' to 
the fuel dist and distributer cap. 

Well worth following this site for the procedure, print off and 
follow the steps one by one and dont mess up when each wire and hose 
goes too :).

Water pump repalacement is a more in depth job, personally i would 
leave it for a winter project , but dont leave it until it starts to 
leak, which after 25 years on an origional one...it will! :)
