RE: [DML] Re: Possibly dropped copper washer from fuel line into engine cylinder

Don't forget the 02 sensor if it hasn't been replaced lately.

I did find my washer on the floor of my garage once I started the 
engine after replacing my newly cleaned injectors.  John H's 
cleaning and testing service was really great.  I had them back 
within 3 days of me shipping them to him.  Much cheaper than buying 
new ones.  Car runs much better, more even idle, more power and no 
dieseling going up hills.  I just need a tune-up to adjust the fuel 
mixture and I'm good to go for the summer.

Thanks again for the helpful advice about my washer "scare".
