    I have seen in recent magazines Liqui Moly injector losen which it says softens the crap that hardens around injectors and glow plugs and an anti sieze product to refit them with, German made, has anybody tried or heard of them? What does everyone else use to help free off tight injectors and to refit them? Murray.

    I have always found it easier to get injectors and glow plugs out if the engine is warm, I presume because the alloy of the head expands more than the steel. I also flood the well round the injectors & plugs with degrippant the day before removal. Not heard of that heard of that particular Liquid Moly product.

    Remove warm after Plus gas application. Reassemble using Copaslip.

    I have used the Liquid Moly manifold cleaner on my Disco3 2.7 and it seemed to work as clouds of smoke was emitted but i think the main ingredient was acetone and i found that electrical cleaner did the same.I also blocked the egr off as it was suddenly stuck open and the exhaust gasses set the carbon in the manifold alight and burnt holes in the inlet manifold (plastic) .The second hand one i got had also a build up of carbon which i cleaned with oven cleaner but there was still some in the inlet ports so i squited some of the special stuff in and seems to have got 90%of the carbon out.

    Thanks, got the old ones out but bloody tight and broke the Laser tools window socket, got a Sealey one but it had slightly thicker wall and had to skim a bit of the OD to get it to fit. Will use copperslip when it goes back together.
