Injectors/oil Dripping

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

#1 -

Yesterday check engine light came on and the right bank was throwing smoke and it smelled like gasoline very strong.. I did a search on here and found this post by previous owner:

"Just before my #5 injector (US driver's side front) went bad the right bank was running rich to compensate. This was, in my case, due to a short in the wiring that took the #5 injector out, along with a failing idle air control valve and a failing coil pack.


So I am thinking the short has reappeared and/or I just need to order a new injector, is there a smart or cheaper process to troubleshoot it? if it's the short I definitely do not want to get a new injector, and since this problem appeared a year ago as well what are the chances the injector would go bad twice? likely the short has reappeared right?

Found a small amount of dripping oil coming from the seal from the engine to gearbox.. its very slight and only a few drips now and then.. this something I should be concerned with?
