REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1 and 2
- Disconnect the negative battery cable, then relieve fuel system pressure.
- Disconnect the PCV hoses.
- Remove the air intake duct. Disconnect the accelerator cable.
- If so equipped, disconnect the transaxle shift cable (automatic transmission) and/or the cruise control cable.
- Label and unplug the vacuum hose from the pressure regulator.
- Remove the dash pot and link bracket, if equipped.
- Disconnect the fuel inlet and return hoses.
- If equipped, remove the cold start injector.
Not all engines are equipped with a cold start injector.
- Unplug the injector electrical connections. Be sure to release the locking tabs before attempting to unplug the connector.
- At the fuel rail, remove the attaching bolts. Lift the delivery pipe and the injectors free of the engine. DON'T drop the injectors.
- Remove the insulators and spacers from the cylinder head. Note the correct placement along with the amount of spacers and insulators used.
Always use new O-rings and gaskets when installing fuel system components.
- Install the insulators into each injector hole. Place the spacers on the fuel rail mounting holes in the cylinder head.
- Position the fuel rail on the cylinder head. Install the bolts, then tighten them to 14 ft. lbs. (19 Nm).
- Engage the electrical connectors to each injector. On color-coded injectors, engage the gray connectors to the dark blue injectors, then the brown connectors to the brown injectors.
- If equipped, install the cold start injector with new gaskets.
- Connect the fuel inlet and return hoses. Tighten to 22 ft. lbs. (29 Nm).
- Install the dashpot with the link bracket, if equipped.
- Connect the vacuum hose to the pressure regulator. Attach the PCV hose.
- Reconnect the accelerator, transaxle control and cruise control cables, then install the air intake duct.
- Connect the battery cable to the negative battery terminal. Start the engine and check for leaks.
