Thank you Joe. Thanks for all the information.

Quick question as I am not to clear on which one is just the cut off assembly.

Is the cut off assembly the one with just two lines leading to it (the one on the right) or the one with multiple lines leading to it (the one on the left)?

How do I know which one is the one I have to change?

Thank you

Welcome back:

I'm almost certain it is on the driver's side. If you look at the pictures from the directions, you should be able to eliminate the wrong one.

Let me know how things work out for you.

Take care.

I guess what I will do is turn the key to the run position without starting the car and listen for when the fuel pump primes then I should be able to tell which side it is.

Fuel pump works. Thanks again Joe.

Lost the snap ring for the fuel pressure regulator. Seems nothing is ever going my way.

I am totally stuck if I can't find one tomorrow to buy. Not even sure if they sell them down here.

Welcome back:

Honestly, your luck is just like mine. You should be able to find a snap ring.

However, I'm glad to hear it's running. You are very welcome if I helped in any way, but you did the job and other than a snap ring, it sounds like you did a good one.

If you can't find what you need, let me know.

Take care,

Joe

Thank you for your words of encouragement Joe. I am about to go to the few auto parts store we have to look for it. I wish I knew the size.

The slide hammer and bearing press kit I ordered will be reaching this weak so I will let you know how that works out.

Hey Joe,

How do you know if the fuel injectors are seated properly?

I changed them last night.

Welcome back:

If not installed properly, usually they leak. The vehicle may not run at all or have a misfire also. Here are the directions for your vehicle to remove and replace. The pics correlate with the directions.

Fuel Injector Removal Note:

CAUTION: Use of a deformed injector retaining clip will cause the injector to not engage correctly. Always use a new clip when reattaching the injector, otherwise it may cause the injector to rotate.

Pic 6

1. Insert a screwdriver between the injector cup and the clip fingers.

Pic 7

NOTE: When rotating the screwdriver to spread the clip fingers, bend them sufficiently to make sure they release from the notched edge of the injector cup.

2. Rotate the screwdriver to spread the clip fingers and remove them from the injector cup.
3. Pull the injector and clip out of the rail.

4. Remove the clip from the injector according to the following:
1. Grasp the clip with a pair of pliers.
2. Pull the clip parallel to the injector groove, and remove it from the injector.
3. Discard the clip.

Fuel Injector Installation Note:

1. Lightly lubricate the injector groove and O-ring.
2. Pre-attach a new clip in the injector groove.

NOTE: When the clip is attached correctly, the central area of the injector and the clip finger positions are aligned.

Pic 9

3. Hold the injector firmly, push the clip into the injector until the clip stops sliding.
4. Verify that the injector connector position is correct, and press the injector and clip into the injector cup. Continue pressing until the clip contacts the lower surface of the injector cup.
5. Verify that the injector and clip are correctly attached with the clip locked onto the injector cup notch.

Plastic Fuel Hose Installation Note:

Thanks Joe. I really appreciate your help. Lol I did not follow some of those steps when I changed them.

While changing spark plugs the rubber on the inside of the spark plugs socket fell out. I didn't see it come out with the spark plugs or socket so I am worried it my have fallen in the spark plugs hole.

I was thinking of removing the valve cover gasket to check. (It is easy to remove my valve cover gasket). Will I be able to see that way or should I do what they do when there is water in an engine and start the engine without the spark plugs in the hole to flush out the oil and piece of rubber?

Welcome back:

If you are referring to the rubber boot, I don't think that would fit through the spark plug hole. I will say that if you didn't install them, they will most likely arc and cause misfires.

As far as the cover, it is nothing more than a bolt on component. If you need help, let me know.

The cover is easy. I've taken off the valve cover a few time before. I just was asking if I take it off will I be able to see down the spark plug hole as I can't remember if that 8s possible.

I'll check under the hood again to see if it might have fallen somewhere there instead. If I find it maybe I will stop worrying.

Welcome back:

I understand. I'm the same way. Let me know if I can help in any way. However, I have a feeling it wouldn't fit into the spark plug hole.

Take care of yourself.

Hey Joe,

Sorry to be so annoying. I am putting in a new connector for my ignition coil and have a little trouble. All the lines coming from the connector are black. How do I tell which one is power, which one is ground and what the other one is?

I can let you know what colors were on the original connector lines if that will help.
