Default Fuel injectors making a ticking sound (video)

Don't know if this is normal or not, just started hearing it lately so I'm going to say no it's not normal. It's strange because I can put my finger on top of the injector where the red/green wires are and I can actually feel it ticking.

hmm i have the same sound, only i thought it could be a lifter. only way to find out if its the injector is to swap it with another and see if the noise moves.

Yea, I might do that, but it's strange because all 8 do that, surely all 8 didn't just go out.....?

Probably one of the reasons they had insulation under the hood.

Injectors do that. I have one that clicks from time to time. Try dumping a bottle of Marvel Mystery in your gas tank. It should lubricate the injector as it passes. Nothing to worry about.

Yes, and it goes great with coffee.

I use 1 ounce of 2 cycle oil meeting TC-W3 standards to 5 gallons of gas. Runs smoother, keeps fuel system clean, and maybe just a smidgen better mileage. I even use it in my John Deere mower, it helped the fuel consumption noticeably in it.

Hmm,, You guys ever hear of adding a quart of ATF to the fuel tank?
some guy told me it was a mechanic secret , and was same as marvel mystery oil , just not in a pretty can .

This true?
