Got off the freeway one night from a 45 mile trip and noticed my car ideling really rough all the sudden. Misfiring. The check engine light came on along the way as well. Turns out it was a bad fuel injector. #5 Fuel injector was reading bad according to my machanic.

We replaced it and the problem was fixed for about 6 weeks. Now it is doing it again slightly different sound likely a different cyclinder doign the same thing. Is this common for them to go like that one after another?

I aslo noticed about two months agao when the weather turned a clittle colder here in southern california that in the morning when I'd start it up I got a strong fuel odor comming to the cab. It goes away once car is warm and on the raod. My father mentnioned something about a possible fuel rail recall something like that. He suggested I take it into the dealership explain the strong fuel odor and see if indeed there was a recall wether or not they will correct the problem.

Could these two problems be related perhaps a leaking fuel rail is causing all the problems? Or are these a seperate issues to be diagnosed individually?

Appreciate any leads or insight thanks in advance. Sorry for the novel.

No worries. I have seen them do that, go out after being disturbed. You need to inspect tehinjectors to see if they are leaking externally, if so have it repaired ASAP, that can cause a Car B Que
