View Full Version : #1 injector sounds like a machine gun???????????

Ok, I'm stumped on this one. I need some advice on things to check.

S14 with Redtop S13sr
Enthalpy Tune
s14 t28
550cc deatchwerks injectors
z32 maf
etc.. and so on.

I think that's all that pertains. Anyways, started my car after work tonight and it runs like crap. It will barely idle, I smell a ton of fuel, smoke pouring out the exhaust just running like dog poo. I open the hood to look around and hear a tick that sounds like a relay that gets shorted and is opening and closing real fast. It's the #1 injector. I unplug the injector harness it goes away. plug it back in same thing? When I unplug the car runs a little better(on 3 cylinders) and the smell of gas goes away.

Please help. Where do I start????

The only thing I thought of checking was the daughterboard on the ecu. But that is in tight.
Any advice is appreciated.

replace the injector, continue life as usual.

Is that a sign of an injector going bad? I went outside this morning and plugged the ecu back in, and the car started fine. I opened the hood and no machine gun. I even drove the car around the block, it ran perfect?

Thanks for your help

I'm not sure what the problem might have been but if it comes back, send me the injector and I will check it out and replace it if necessary.

Thanks. If it happens again I'll let you know. Hopefully it doesn't, this is my daily driver. Sending out an injector means I'm without my car.
