you can disconnect an individual injector to see if it is the problem injector. You will not cause any damage. I have done this many times before.Chris

just unscrew the two wires, start and listen for any change.
the mis seems to be most evident at idle
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 6 months ago
that is correct. Just try to make sure that the disconnected wires don't short together.Chris

this seems a lot easier than disconnecting the fuel line at the rail, and then capping the rail with a plug? thats what i have the most.
will taking off the wires throw any codes?
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 6 months ago
It will set a code, but just clear it after you are done testing.

Hello, just wondering if you still need help. I replied back to you several days ago and have not heard back at all. Please let me know. If you no longer need any more help, then that is fine, but please let me know so I can close this session.

Thank you!

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
