View Full Version : Injector Seals

04-28-2008, 08:11 PM
Hey guys, been dealing with some upper psi misfires, switched up the coil packs and re gapped the spark plugs. I now have cylinder 2 misfire at 15+ psi. I dont know what else it could be, and i never changed my injector o ring seals that a mechanic/friend said I should at this point. Maybe im getting some blow by.
Anyway, is there any specific process to installing them? Little bit of oil, or petroleum jelly? Or do you just drop them in.

I heard jelly works best.

use a smear of dot 4 brake fluid, it doesnt rot or affect the rubber, and lubes it up nicely

there's a DIY on audiworld.

I would pick up some dialectric grease to make the job easier

use motor oil... in fact the bentley manual states exactly this. i usually take a smear off the dipstick :)

petroleum jelly, LOL.
