    Bosch fuel injectors - M117 5.6 motors

    It appears that over the past 4-6 months, that the price of Bosch CIS fuel injectors has gone up from the ~$30 range (apiece) to more than $50. Just a word to the wise. MB list price on these injectors is around $77, for comparison. That's a huge price jump.

    Thanks for the heads-up Gerry. Cheaper to have a used set cleaned and flow tested for balance?

    Hey Yasin,

    Generally once these injectors are worn (and I'm talking past their service life of about 80-90K miles) they are not worth cleaning and pop-testing. It's really designed to be a throw-away item and new injectors should be purchased. My last set (I referenced in the HOW-TO on injector replacement) lasted nearly 200K miles, but they were WAAAAY beyond their service life and they should have been replaced years ago. What a huge difference the new set of injectors made. I had a couple of leaky ones and this caused rough running for approximately 5-10 seconds after every start (warm or cold) as the excess fuel burned off in the combustion chambers.

    My mileage also went up about 1 MPG after changing them, probably due to more efficient burning and better spray patterns.

    Cheers,
    Gerry

    Cool Gerry. Understood, I might have to look at replacing mine sometime, I am sure your can also ran much smoother as well? I wonder if any of mine have the case of the "dribbles"...hmmm.

    FWIW, if you Can, what ever set you end up with, have them pop and flow tested prior, I've seen some pretty nasty deviation b/w new injectors direct from Bosch. As Most of MB's bits, I suspect the A stock is what becomes Genuine etc, etc..

    I'm going to remove the injectors on the SEL I just got and have them tested before I order anything.

    I have a very slight hesitation (mainly when the car is warm) right from a stop sign, for about 1/4 second on initial acceleration. Going to run some CIS tests, inspect the airflow plate this weekend, check the linkages, etc. Fuel distributor and EHA are recent, and I think they are probably OK.
