have you checked the rest of the plugs and coils to see if there is any problem with them? Also where the injectors that were messing up the new ones or the cleaned ones? Also out of curiosity which cylinder is giving you problems? Also did you have the head checked while the car was in one of these shops?
The error codes ranged from saying a few injectors are bad, to misfires on all cylinders , and sometimes it says ignition coil failures. The last set of codes said cylinder 4 and 6 coils were bad. Those are the ones i replaced. Oddly enough, when things got real bad cylinder #4 was the one running realy rich.
the injector that was being turned on and causing the rich mixure was a cleaned one. But the only way i could see the injector causing this problem is if it was stuck open, but i could clearly hear that the solenoid was being pulsed on for no reason, why would the ECU do that? the engine wasn't even running, the key was just in the on position.
I pulled out all the spark plugs and they looked ok except for #4. The only reason I replaced the ignition coils is because i was running out of ideas(and it was relatively cheap compared to what ive spent already). This OBD II is a plague, mechanics use it as a crutch.
I did not have the head checked, to do so would require the removal, a compression test might work, but i am very hesitant to believe its that. I know what an engine runs like when it has bad compression, this isn't it. Plus i know other people that have overheated like me to the point that the radiator blew up and their engines are all fine.
I need to get it dyno'd so i know im not crazy, anyone know of a place in LA area?
