Fuel Injector Purchase?

I'm looking to replace my fuel injectors and I can get a re-manufactured oem injector for $54.85 each for a local import parts store. They have a 1yr warranty. I was wondering if anyone has experience with a re-manufactured injector and if it's something good to get.

I know Atlantic British has them for around 154.00 each so there would be a big cost savings.


Thanks for any info.

What's wrong with your injectors? You can get reman injectors even cheaper at RockAuto Auto Parts. You might even be able to find a place that will "rebuild" them for you. All they really do to them is ultrasonically clean them, and replace the screens and o-rings. Even the $50 ones at the part store have nothing else done to them. I think I paid $18 each at a parts place in town to have mine cleaned. He said nothing was wrong with them.

This would be a good way to go. Then you'll get NEW injectors.

The hard plastic part on the end was really brittle and broke a part on a handful of my injectors and I can't seem to find kits for that. I've never replaced them sense Ive owned the vehicle and I put over 100k miles on the injectors sense I've had it.

There might be cheaper ones out there.

Hard plastic part on the end? Are you maybe talking about the o-rings which have hardened and gotten brittle from age and engine heat?

You can get replacement o-rings at your local auto parts store for like $4/4 rings. Replacing all of the injectors in order to remedy degraded rings would be like buying a new car because your tires wore out.

100K miles is nothing for an injector. It's a really simple and reliable piece of technology and in the dozens of cars that I've worked on in my life I've experienced maybe 2 injector failures.

Replace the o-rings and run a bottle of Techron through the fuel system every 3 months or so and your injectors will last you the life of the vehicle.

There is a plastic cap at one end that retains the o-ring. Is the white piece on the injector in this photo: Fuel Injector (BOSCH) (Part # ERR6600) - Land Rover fuel injection from Atlantic British
