More Fuel Injector woes (weird 240)

Discussion in 'Volvo 240' started by DL152279546231, Jan 26, 2004.

  1. My main original problem was a leak either the oil rings or fuel injector
    itself. I tried pulling the electrical connector from the top of the injector
    and pulled one the pigtail spades loose from the plastic housing. I pushed the
    rubber boot off and managed to get the spade back in place. Now, with the
    connctor back one and having done nothing else, the fuel injector stopped
    leaking. But, now the car is running rough. It actually runs better with the
    spark plug wire or the fuel injector electric connector off for that cylinder.
    What can be going on?? The car ran fine before I started all this (execept for
    a cold idle problem which I was learning to live with)

    Did you clean and regap the plug from that cylinder? Sounds like you may
    have a fouled plug.

    No, but should I? I was thinking it must be a faulty injector although now it
    does not leak. I also cannot understand why it quit leaking.
