Default Re: Ford 1.4L TDCI: Injector Failures

Full story here: https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-...ml#post4454226 (Review: 1st-gen Ford Figo (2010))

Now I am being told that all 4 injectors have gone bad because of the water in diesel issue. Fuel pump and common rail is okay as per them.

I am staring at a very hefty replacement bill. What are my options? Are these injectors serviceable? Or do I request Ford to step in and help me with the replacement cost?

They need to be replaced if the "solenoid" or "peizo electric stack" has failed.

If they are electrically fine, then they can be cleaned using the liqui moly diesel purge process or by a suitable injector reconditioning place.

Alternatively the nozzles can be replaced for a few thousand rupees each by an injector specialist in case cleaning doesn't fix them !

Are there any injector related codes that you see along with a engine check light ? (P120x or similar ?) If there are no 120x codes my guess is a simple liqui moly diesel purge might solve your issues.

Thanks man. There are no error codes at all which appear when connected to the ford diagnostics. My injector specialist says all injectors are serviceable and two injectors need their sensors replaced.

What is this liquimoly diesel purge?
