I can clean your fuel injectors. Just pay for shipping and the fluid

I'm thinking about offering a service for the guys/girls on some forums i enjoy.

I've been working for Bosch than Volvo and BMW in Europe, but my love for those cars is pretty much gone and I've been a Mercedes Enthusiast for a while.
I remember the difference a clean injector makes in the way the car runs and how often i used to see them in poor condition.

In case you have a faulty injector, i have a bunch of spare ones (Mercedes and BMW cars of late 80s to late 90s) i kept through the years and could sell those at half the market price for used units.

This is WHY: http://www.r3vlimited.com/board/show...4&postcount=61

And here's if you want to upgrade your injectors for 60$ (m20 to m50/ E30 to E36) http://www.r3vlimited.com/board/show...4&postcount=34

Here's How I bring them back to life

1. Initial Visual Inspection - Check the injectors for signs of physical damage.
2. External Degrease Soak - Soak them in a degreaser solution
3.External cleaning - Brush off the loosened grime from the injectors
4: De-filtering - Remove the old filters in preparation for ultrasonic cleaning.
5. Ultrasonic cleaning - The Injectors are soaked in Degreaser and Left pulsating in the Ultrasound Bath
6. Purge the injectors - Install the injectors on the Fuel rail and spray into a container to ensure none of the fluid we use in the ultrasonic cleaner gets put into the calibration fluid.
7. Initial flow - Flow through the machine checking for spray pattern and any signs of malfunction.
8. Filter Basket installation - Install the new filter basket.
9. Reassemble - Using all new applicable parts (O-rings, spacers, pintle caps)

I'm in Southern California by the way. About 1 hour from LA

I can do 2 kits a day or 3-4 on a weekend.
So the turnaround should be 24-48 hours (please allow for more time if you have faulty injectors.

=======================================
Prices
Servicing your injector - 5$ per injector
Buy my injector at - 10$ per injector (12 month warranty)
Both options will include a new repair kit. New o-rings, new spacers and new filters.


Plus Shipping
You can use the small flat rate box that will be $6.10 shipped anywhere in US and can fit about 3 sets easily.
Or use the bubble wrapped envelopes at about $3-4 (wouldn't recommend)
=======================================

If you care to see how specific injectors were performing, you need to mark each of them with the Cylinder number and i will make sure i keep those numbers for your record.
Please note you forum ID on the package to help me keep track of communication.

This is a nice article on how to remove your injectors with pictures. Applicable for the E36 engines but process is similar on most of the cars
http://www.pelicanparts.com/bmw/tech...eplacement.htm

Here's the process similar to what I do. (i have nothing to do with the company advertised in the video or the original uploader of that video)


Here's a good table to give you an idea of compatibility

My favorite

I have to tell you this has been the best car part experience I've ever had. You communicate "Perfectly" and you do exactly what you say you will. I've been little impressed with the human race latley and you've been a ray of hope with your superb handling of this transaction.
I wish you and yours health, wealth, and happiness.

Thumbs up

Buddy you are a godsend, if you know your job
Whenever we port tops, I try to convince customers to have their Injectors serviced
Even on low mileage cars I see tremendous differences in flow patterns & delivery volumes
I blame the fuel additives you buy over the counter, as my cars generally do not tend to do this
How do you want to fine-tune a car where the individual combustion pressures & processes differ ?

Yep, people normally ignore that part. I assume it's because it's an expensive service and on some cars takes some skill to remove them. I know they will usually charge about 100-120 to clean a set or up to 200 for a V8 engine. And replacing one piece at the dealer is probably about 400-600 parts and labor

Now that I can have it done for under 50$ makes a huge difference.

Everyone that has the 1st gen injectors should have them serviced or upgraded.
The failure rate on those injectors is ridiculous.

This applies to:
ETA injectors that end in 126, gray color
All the blue injectors ending in 715 or the 4 cylinder models ending in 740.

Those injectors are poorly designed and leak fuel in closed mode. Result is the infamous running reach engine on the early E30 cars. Plus the second gen are better at what the injector is intended to do - fuel atomization.
See the difference here: http://www.r3vlimited.com/board/show...4&postcount=34

Need to mention that this would be the best time to get your fuel filter replaced and ignition components checked.

Here's how close i can bring them to specs
(This set is an E30 upgrade to the second gen injectors off a e36)



And here's a typical failure on the 1st gen injectors

Two more things very important to mention:
1 The injector has 2 o-rings. The top one prevents fuel leaks and is easy to spot if it's cracked. A bad bottom o-ring will cause air to be sucked into the engine. This air is not metered by the MAF sensor and will cause the car to run poorly.
2. The filter contains a basket filter. I replace those when i refresh them and i see a lot of them that are damaged. It just falls in pieces when i take it out. That's one of the primary causes of injectors clogging

Your set is ready. I like the results and was curious myself to see how the E30 M3 injectors would perform compared to the non m3 i had.

S14 Engine M3 E30
BMW13641273272
Bosch 0280150201

Rated at 240 cc/min, these came very close to 235cc/min and had great jet and similar flow rates.

1- 240 cc/min
2- 235 cc/min
3- 235 cc/min
4- 235 cc/min

D,

Thank you, amigo! As you can imagine I am super stoked that the injectors are in good shape. The video is really cool, too... a picture is worth a thousand words.

Mark

I have my supplies back in stock so the service is back UP !

I have a lot of orders in queue. Please allow up to 3 days turn-around.

To make it easier to keep track. I will ask payment when the package is ready to be shipped back.

Please write on the box the forum ID you have to help me keep track of orders.
It's difficult to associate the address on the boxes i get with the Forum ID

I've got a 325e that's running rich. I am interested in either a cleaning or an upgrade. What kind of differences will I see with M50 injectors? Power, economy, smoothness...?

I think you have the low impedance 0280150 126 injectors with the gray cap.
If that's the case, than I can't offer an upgrade at this time.
If you have the blue top injectors with a part number ending in 715, than an upgrade will give you better mileage and better performance. I do have those in stock

Take a look at the top of your injectors and let me know what color they are

Just finished a set for an E30 M3 and thought i'd share some updates

The paint comes off easily on a lot of older injectors and i'm afraid they may get corroded in time, if you plan to keep the car for a long time or do a clean restoration, i advise you get a layer of paint.
So i decided to give it a try yesterday and spray a set to see how they come out.
Since the injectors are for an M3 engine, i felt motivated enough to do it

Injectors at different stages of servicing

[IMG=500x500]
[IMG=500x500]


How easy the paint comes off and exposes it for corrosion
[IMG=500x500]

And here's the final result



If anyone want to have their set resprayed, i can do it for an extra 10$ on the set.
You can pick a different color, but you'll have to provide me with a SKU for the paint you want and the place to get it from.

Or you can just do it yourself when you get them back to save some money.

I have about 10k views on my threads related to injector service and it's getting harder to keep track of communication on different forums, so I decided to add a web page for those interested in reaching out to me.
http://mepeh.com/

You can use the form on the Contact Us page and i'll get the message instantly on my phone. Very convenient to keep track of the orders. I added a facebook page as well and will be able to communicate easier through it.
https://www.facebook.com/MEPEHinjectors

Not sure what i'm going to do with these, but i'm trying to migrate my other projects to my websites and hope this will be easier for you as well. May be i'll add a check out page to help out those without a paypal account
