started my weekend project and two of the fuel injectors have those little caps on the bottom cracked. is that a problem it is the outer edge that is cracked. the one lookls kinda like it is leaking fuel out of the bottom as all the others were dry and there was no fuel pressure to relieve when i went to releive it anyone know anything about injector condition?

The caps can be replaced. There really shouldn't be any fuel on the injector when you pull it out unless it dripped in there when you were pulling the injector off the rail. Such an injector that just weeps fuel need to be rebuilt or replaced.

I found this info from some previous threads.

Ford still has them and they're about 9 bucks for a package of 6.


NAPA sells a seal kit that includes 2 O-rings, 1 plastic washer and 1 plastic pintle cap (blue). Six of those will set you back $24.08.
