Injector Replacement

566 5
How important is it that you replace the copper washer when you do injectors? Is it ok if you use the old one, or do I need to stop being a girl and pull them out and put a new washer in? Just wondering if there can be any negative affects from using the old one. Thanks!:thumbsup:

If you have already re-used the old ones and there has been no problems i wouldnt pull them out to change them.

I have reused the copper washers before with out a problem

i agree, as long as they arent crushed or diformed and you are in a bind or have already used them i wouldnt pull them out. but copper is relatively soft so it will crush an deform to the surface irregularities.

Well they are the ones off the stock injectors. I'm having hard starts right now, but I think it's the orings....i ordered new ones today so hopefully that will fix the starting problems. I was just wondering if diesel could drip into the cylinder and then into the oil if you reused them or something...I just get paranoid about stuff. lol
