You could try sucking it out. Nothing to loose. Worst case is it gets ingested and spit out the exhaust. The only question is would it melt in that fraction of a second and how much of a mess it might make. I doubt it would do any real damage.
No, it should pass through in nothing flat. This all seems to have started by swapping injectors or maybe before it.So does it take awhile to go all the way through? Something is making the idle go haywire. I'll try to see if I can fish it out in the morning. Definitely not running like it's supposed to. Was getting great gas mileage and running smooth. I'll try to change the other injector. Let's hope that solves it. Or the injectors are not seated all the way.
I remember that thread. Thought that reseating the fuel rail solved the problem then. Did you ever clean out the EGR valve and stack tubes?Seems like I put some bad gas in it or something. At least I know that's what was going on last summer when I first starting losing gas mileage. It would miss when I would drive. I was told that I had a bad cylinder and needed a new engine. I mentioned this in another thread. I found out differently though.
U probly shoulda done the EGR valve when you had the fuel rail off. It can be removed and cleaned but is PITA to do that with the fuel rail back in place, plus you would need a new gasket for it. However what you can do is take the throttle body back off. pretty easy. Like HUF says clean the EGR stack tubes there in the intake. FSM recommends a 11/32 drill bit (use it manually, I did this to my Dev) to fit down into each tube and twist it to scrape the sides of all the crud ( a hanger would work too I guess). The only problem will be that once you loosen up all that crud, ideally you'd want to blow it out where the EGR valve sits. Now you'll run the risk of clogging the EGR valve up a bit. Try it and see what happens. Worst case you'll keep getting the code and then you'll almost have to suffer the PITA of removing the EGR valve and cleaning it. IF that happens, do not use solvent on the EGR you have to carefully tap the pintle with a plastic hammer to loosen the crud off and gently scour with a brush type tool or sponge. Make sure it is as spotless as possible. clean the mating surfaces on the engine and reinstall with new gasket.
If the car has been sitting for a few days the fuel pressure would drop to zero naturally.Would that cause rough idle? I noticed when I relieved the pressure on the fuel rail when I was trying to reconnect the leaky injector that not much gas came out of the nozzle on the end. Could the fuel pressure regulator be bad? What kind of screw do you use to remove it? Hard to tell.
Maybe that is your problem. I would not put anything with Bosch on it in my car.I got the bosch three from ebay.
Pardon for asking but why not? Never has a Bosch product failed for me.Maybe that is your problem. I would not put anything with Bosch on it in my car.
Well like any company that has diversified products, some excel in quality, some don't! Lots of happy customers, some not.I have never heard a good word mentioned in the same sentence as Bosch, especially when talking about the Northstar. I've never used a Bosh product so I do not speak from experience. "Your results may differ".
