Hi,

Not something I have done and unless someone else comes in with some good info,  suggest you look at some of the many Ytubes on finding the fault.

This one looks like a good place to start without specialist equipment.

you can measure the injectors resistance with a multimeter, check two of your injectors and compare them, take one good injector and see if it has the same resistance as the cylinder that dosent get fuel.

 

or you could swap an injector that you know is working into the not working cylinder.

I'd go to a dealership. Seals aren't too expensive compared to the other parts you'd have to buy.

In my experience you'll either go to a place like Euro Car Parts and buy a seal which may not be 100% correct for your car, or for £1/£2 more you could go direct to the dealer and buy seals that will be 100% correct and official for your vehicle.

I am basing this on how it is in the UK. I know from my aunt that dealerships in Ireland are "robbing b*****ds". But then again she thinks everyone is a robbing b*****d.
