Fuel Injector Help!

Recommended Posts

Hi we have a 2005 corolla verso and at the weekend we had the management light and traction control light come on.

We took it to the local dealer last night who informed us after doing the diagnostic check that the fuel injectors have gone! Apparently only one has gone but they recommend we do them all to the tune of £2000 because if we only get the one done the others are likely to fail. They have quoted £500 plus labour for just the one.

does anyone have any experience of this or advice?

They valued it for us and without the fault came back with £5000 trade in so with the work that needs doing they have offered us £3500.

Bearing in mind they're only going to give us £5000 if it was fixed, we dont see any point getting it fixed.

My biggest query is that should something that serious go wrong on a 5 year old car that doesn't have a massive mileage.

Any advice or opinions gladly taken

Thank you

hello mate

in general they are right. if one injector has shown to be about to die then it is better to test all of them --- it is like spark plugs or glow plugs (nevermind). each one has own lifetime as human, but the statistic is good thing to track when the lifetime comes to fail. there are many workshops dealing with fuel injection systems repair and you are free to have a choice whether or not to make yr pocket empty/ in general the job nature is easy -- just to understand the nature what to do.
