Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you.

After replacing the injectors, were the injector codes newly taught into the control unit?

Each injector has a code at the top. This code must be stored in the control unit. This code indicates the internal manufacturing tolerances of the injector. The control unit then adjusts the injection quantity accordingly. If this is not done, the car runs very badly or not at all.

If this has not yet been done, please do this.

I would be very happy about a rating with 5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.

Hi. Thank you for getting back to me. What happened was the new engine came with its original injectors but only started for a second or two then cut out So I changed my injectors to the ones I had in my old engine but it did the same thing so I changed them back to the injectors that were the original ones for the engine

Are the injecors at the same Cylinder Numbers like in the old engine?

Please answer only in this chat, new questions do not only cost extra, it can also be that the question is accepted by a colleague, but he does not know the previously discussed and you have to explain everything anew.

What fault codes are stored in the control unit?
