dr_broon Posted May 24, 2022 Share Posted May 24, 2022 So a few months back, my brother in law had a problem in his civic with an r18 engine where one of the injectors failed. My mate who works on our cars and used to work in the workshop at Honda is still in touch with guys he used to work with said they'd started seeing loads of injectors going, and thought it was because of e10. Fast forward to yesterday, and Karen's accord started sounding rough (she said it sounded like a scooby) and had an engine warning light on. Turns out it was a misfire on one of the cylinders.. Everything else checked out okay, so have ordered a new injector for it - my mate said when he was speaking to the parts guy at the dealer, apparently they'd ordered 18 injectors in a single week, which is totally unheard of. Needless to say, Karen's also now not touching e10 anymore. Normally bullet proof k24 felled by some rubbish fuel (or at least so it seems). Nuts when you think my b18 has been rocking on for over 20 years and well over 200k and never had an issue with an injector. Don't even remember anyone on here having issues. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
