1991 Buick Regal, 3800 V6
I posted a few weeks ago about having a rough idle on a cold start. After some research and closer inspection of the vehicle, I’m quite certain I have at least one leaking injector that is flooding a cylinder and causing the car to misfire on a cold start. I’m also not at the gas mileage I should be at.
So I’m wondering, is fuel injector replacement as straightforward of a job as it looks? Any major issues I could run into in doing a replacement?
I’m planning on replacing all six injectors (I can get them for $50 each buying online with a discount code), but given that the vehicle is so old am I better off just replacing the faulty ones? I’m assuming pulling the spark plugs and seeing which cylinder is wet will tell me which I need to replace.
And one more question: Is there a way to depressurize the fuel system when I park the car for the night, thus preventing fuel (or most of it) from leaking into the engine until I get this fixed? I’ve read that just unscrewing the gas cap can depressurize the system.
