Wrench Fuel Injector issue

I guess my del sol has a mitsu. fuel rod installed and I have to replace the 4th fuel injector because of the o-ring. Reason why there is a gas smell and needs replaced asap. Anyone possibly know what they use?



Del Sol D16

DSM 440's

Default Re: Fuel Injector issue

is it just an O-ring leak? Like fuel is squirting out between the rail and injector? That's a pretty simple fix, just pull the rail off and take the injector up to a parts store and buy an o-ring that fits. Or go to the honda dealership and buy new o-rings. If you're feeling really cheap about it, any other honda injector o-ring will fit so you can go to a junk yard and snag a couple from there.

Updated first post with image

EDIT: To answer your other question it's the first injector on the left and it's coming from the injector like a syringe....idk if I put that correctly

He did write this down on paper for me and said to look it up online via honda-tech:

"DSM 440's Injector o-rings"

He said I couldn't just use any o-ring because it's a different fuel rod, but I'm no car expert.

That's a factory honda fuel rail. As for the injectors, yes those are DSM 440cc injectors, the blue top ones in fact. Those injectors are from a second gen eclipse GS-T or GS-X. However, that doesn't really matter, they fit the stock honda manifolds and fuel rail and the o rings for the hondas are a direct fit on the DSM injectors so you can simply get new honda o rings to fix the issue.

YES! You're a life saver! I'm getting like 10 miles to the gallon now, because of this small issue and when I went to the dealership for help they weren't much help at all. They easy to install? Running to advance now for the o-rings. Thanks again!

Not hard to do, just take off the fuel rail which is 3 bolts, then on the injector the O-Ring literally pulls right off and you put the new one on. I would post a pic but once you look at the injector itself it's pretty self explanatory.

Ok just checking. I didn't know if there were proper safety steps or anything, but I guess what the guy was referring to was when you install new fuel injectors.

EDIT: I'll have to post a picture of my BOV, because he also noted I should install a "Golden Eagle Vacuum Block" because the line running to my BOV it said is either to long or not enough for the small T3 that my engine has

Default Re: Fuel Injector issue

I was reading that I have to relieve the fuel system pressure by removing the vacuum hose and also disconnecting the negative battery and removing my gas tank cap?

EDIT: Well my buddy replaced the o-ring to the manifold and he thinks to seem that since the stud from fuel rail to the manifold (it's broken and missing the nut) is causing the issue since it's not being held down tight enough. Haven't replaced the other o-rings yet. Where by chance could I possibly get this stud that is required?

Thanks

You can either buy them new from honda, or you can go to a junk yard and snatch the studs off any single cam engine.

As for this releaving of pressure, blasphemy! Just unbolt the rail and pull it off. You'll spill some gas, but it wont hurt anything and it'll all evaporate pretty fast. Just make sure you're not smoking a cig while doing this.

97 eclipse GS-T or GS-X. Doesn't matter which one of the two, just has to be the turbo motor.
