Unhappy Injectors

Hi guys, I'm new to this forum, but have had our Antara for 2 years now. The first week after buying from the garage the power went down (on a very dodgy road) and then wouldn't start, the garage had it back and apparently it was something to do with the injectors, they replaced one, 2 years on exactly the same problem, power down and now won't start, too it to the normal garage we use last week and now its all 4 injectors - £1400! I'm just so disappointed and have been since owning this car, its just not trustworthy at all! Is this a common problem that people have come across?

Hi Mate, sorry to here of your problems, there are a few threads on here concerning injectors, did you have any black smoke issues before they failed and are there any fault codes present.

hi - I have the same issue and was thinking of buying a fault code reader. Any suggestions - I was heading to ebay.

Hi I bought my car second hand and had to replace the injectors at 50,000 miles, which I thought ridiculous. I'm not sure how common it is, but I now use Redex with every fill up and replaced my fuel filters trying to keep ahead of future possible problems. When my 2.2 Diesel 4x4 was losing power, I bought a cheap code reader (U480) on Ebay which is also handy for deleting fault codes once the problem is resolved. The cheaper code readers will give you a code which you can then research on u-tube. My code reader never mentioned injectors, only low fuel pressure. I ended up paying VX £100 for a detailed diagnosis. Hope it's of some help.
