My gt's dying update!

An update on the problem with my gt diesel, connected a diagnostic to it today, injector 3 had failed! according to the guy in the garage its a fairly common fail on these motors and he's done a few. Ive priced one up over 200 quid from my local dealer, going to try to source one secondhand.
Worth bearing in mind if the mcsf is illuminated car is running really badly and the fuel gauge is jumping around like buggery!

Re: My gt's dying update!

not that i've really noted such things (cos i don't have a JTD), but is it that common a problem? i haven't read anything about it in the forums.

car out of warranty i figure.

Re: My gt's dying update!

another update, had the injector tested and repaired at a specialist diesel injector place in cardiff total 94 quid. fitted and problem seems to be resolved car is now running fine although light is still on. When removing injectors i noticed how much crud was in the holes, they really are full up of it. Im going to now remove all the other injectors and clean them up, hopefully i can save myself the hassle of going through this again.
