hi,just passing on my story,maybe it can help someone.my astra h 1.7 (36000 mls) had an anoying tapping that went right through my head when the engine was under slight load hot or cold.injectors or valve clearance i thought,so i sent the injectors to be tested.one injector was dumping diesel all over the place so bought a recon to replace it,the valve clearances were all fine.my engine is now rid of the tapping,just sounds like a diesel engine which i am more than happy with.:)

Hi

Just a few questions incase anyone needs to get the same done......

How much is a recon injector?

Where did you get the injectors tested?

Are the injectors easy to remove and replace?

Cheers

Dave
