    Fuel Leak Problem With Injector Install!

    So I was installing my injectors yesterday and i was confronted with a huge problem: the damn injectors won't stop leaking! I've used the old O rings that were on my other injectors, and even newer ones that i believe were provided by DW. I lubed with up with gas, even tried vasoline, but to no avail, they still leak. And when I install them into the fuel line, I pull HARD, sometimes one clicks, yet still leaks, and for the most part the others don't click. I can't figure out this problem, can someone help?

    Hey, sorry to dig up this thread, but since nothing had been resolved I don't see any harm in resurrecting it considering I encountered the same problem. I recently put in new injectors and about 2 weeks after my installation I needed to remove them due to some bad fuel, upon re-installation, the injector for cylinder 2 was leaky, so I re-seated it and that fixed the problem. The next day, I encountered the same problem but with injector number 3, so instinctively I removed it and checked the o'ring for cracks and stuff, then put it back in, unfortunately this time it didn't solve anything. Next i'm gonna switch around the injectors on that side and see if that fixed anything. Also, the grommet that buffers the fuel rail and the injector was loose and would move a little, whereas the other injectors were not. Any help on the matter would be appreciated as this is getting quite frustrating. Thanks
