Then you need a new manifold

When I did this after I put the manifold back on I was leaking gas so had to change the seals. I did not use the tool just put them all on with my fingers. For the white one that go into the head i used a bic pen with the ink cartridge removed as a replacement for the tool the carefully slid them on the injectors. Then used a zip tie around them to squeeze them back to size it was not perfect and I had to use the hole they go into by carefully turning them back and forth before the would go in fully. Also I used silicone spray on all the seals before inserting into head and putting manifold back.

*sighs* oh God, I gotta do this very soon, not looking forward to it.

What's everyone's advice for the injector seals? It's like 40.00 for all 4, but do I need to do them? If so, do I need to get the tool to put them on?

I bought the seals and tool from ECS and wound up returning them after not noticing any fuel leaks for a day and half.

I was at 67K. The seal tool kit fits in a medium USPS flat rate box so the peace of mind costs around $13 and a trip to the post office.

Check out my DIY pictures. Used a DIY walnut shell blaster pieced together from Harbor Freight and Home Depot. If anybody local needs to borrow an injector tool, walnut blaster tool, hit me up!

After doing my carbon cleaning, i put the injector seals on without the tool.

But after the cleaning i've developed a random misfire, its only happened 3 times now in the past 7 months. But still. Could be fuel injector related, i have no idea.

For the peace of mind i recommend you do it the right way.

I had 3 injectors that came out with the manifold. I tried to replace the seals without the tool and had at least 1 fuel leak if not 2. I am guessing I would've had better luck not trying to replace the seals.

So I had to do the whole process all over again the next weekend. If you are going to replace the seals, I recommend getting the tool. My brother will need the cleaning done on his CC coming up and I told him he can borrow the tool for $40, so I will make some of my money back.

Also, I did not use media, and didn't get nearly as clean as the images above. I did get large chunks out and the stems are very clean, but the backside of the valves still has probably a 1/16" or so thick layer of crusted stuff on it. Even with that, it was a noticeable, I think, improvement.
