hey there, has anybody had any issues with injectors leaking on the 2.2 cdti?,yesterday the wife had to call out the breakdown service,she was getting a noise from engine then a strong smell ,then smoke from engine,turns out number 1 injector seal was leaking,recovery guy tightened injector and it seems to be ok but he said it was only a tempory fix.

I contacted my honda dealer today and they told me they done one last week but it ended up being a nightmare to replace seal,they couldnt get injector out and the bolts that go into head were solid,so head had to come off and get work done it regarding the threads or something like that,it took 2 1/2 weeks.

Also ive still got used car warranty on car but they told me injector would be taken out ,then photos of seal sent to honda to see if they would be willing to authorise repair under warranty,i asked if it would be ok to drive car as my wife needs car for work but service manager in dealers couldnt give me a answer

anybody got any idea what time it takes to remove one injector if there is no hold ups with bolts etc sticking?

i mentioned to service manager surely seals would be covered under warranty and his reply was he wasnt sure as he hadnt read the terms and conditions for a while and also they have changed recently:eek:
i would have the thought he should know these things

any info would be great, cheers

the leak starts out slow and builds up carbon deposits making them really difficult to remove. its common enough in the diesel world and head removal is often required :-( havent seen it much on our cars but fords suffer quite badly. its not for sure that this is necessary the somtimrs come out aftwr an overnight soak. they also sometimes snap when trying....

Should definitely be covered under warranty Dave, as it's not a consumable item. Sounds more like he doesn't want to do it. Any decent diesel specialist can do it, and if the recovery man managed to tighten it, it will probably come out quite easily.

My money is on the injector having been out once before but never re-seated correctly. That's when they normally have issues..

i know the previous owner put petrol in the car by a mistake because when i bought car the honda service manager showed me all the previous work that had been done on car by honda

does the injectors have to come out to clear away the petrol i wonder?

That will be covered by warranty don't let them flip you off!

I don't have an educated answer to that about taking the injectors out does it say how extensive the work after petrol added was as they possibly may of only needed to drain tank if he hadn't started it!

they can be a really nightmare to ge out [smilie=grrrrrr.gif], all depends on how much carbon has bulit up around the injector.
i do believe there is a updated injector and seal now from honda.
i can see why it wouldn't be covered under warranty
