OK, I often need to juice the gas when I'm starting the car when it's warm. I replaced the filter and that seemed to help but it still happens every other time. It also seems my thermostat is toast so I'll be replacing that today, but I wanted to check the injectors. After I removed the bolt-on cover (and relieved the fuel pressure) I couldn't get the injectors out for the life of me! It was like there was a vacuum at the other end holding them in. I pried with a screwdriver until the red plastic started to contort and I tried twisting and shaking and I got nowhere. Tried on cyl 1,2 and 4 and all with the same result.

Am I missing something?

Thanks for any and all input!

Brad

Thanks for the reply but:
"Remove injector tube assembly with injectors from intake
manifold."

That's the problem. Beyond what I mentioned above, do you have any suggestions on HOW to remove it?


Thanks again,
Brad

take the caps off of the top of the injectors, put the screws back in about halfway. use two flathead screwdrivers and pry up on the injectorsby the slots on the sides of them using the screws as a leverage point.
