Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

Have you checked compression and have you tried swapping number 2 injector with another cylinder?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Not yet, it's pretty involved to get there and I've not had the time. Thought about just buying another injector. Are they easy to change?
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 2 years ago.

Buying another is great if the one in there is bad but if you buy another and put it in can we be sure if the problem is the same that the injector you bought is any better than the one you are replacing?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Is there a history of electrical problems or shorts in these harnesses I can check. Do you have any instructions to change the injectors?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It's there an easy way to change one?
Expert:  Wayne Crawford replied 2 years ago.

Theres no common spots for shorts. What makes you think you have a short?

What size engine is it? I can get you instructions to replace the injector with hopefully a good one. If you arent gonna try swapping it with a known good one I would recommend getting an injector from ford so you get the best chance of it being good.. aftermarkets are hit and miss.
