Unhappy Stuck Injectors! - Best Way To Unstick Them?

So after diagnosing my no start condition, I found out that I only had 2 injectors that were clicking out of the 6. With a bit of brake parts cleaner and tapping with a hammer, I managed to get 2 of them to click. I only have 2 more left that are stuck, and they're a pain. I already tried tapping them, left them soaking with brake cleaner overnight, used a 9v and 12v battery to get them to open and nothing

Can anyone suggest an effective liquid or method to get these last 2 injectors to unstick? They are stuck closed. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

How much is your time worth? New Bosch brand injectors are under $60 each ... http://www.fiveomotorsport.com/product-search/?v=12653 .

There's also rebuild kits so you can dismantle them, soak them good, and get them fixed that way (don't have a link handy, sorry!)

If you DO buy new ones, I'd buy a full set of 6 and get them matched. Won't make that much difference now, but it never hurts (save at the wallet!)

THAT said - a quick check on Ebay turns up a six-pack of rebuild kits for $18, and a set of 6 injectors for $103. YMMV, and I make NO recommendation for anyone on Ebay!

(Don't make counter-recommendations either, just a possible source.)

Thanks for the response. So you can actually dismantle these injectors? I was thinking about that but they look completely sealed. Would the rebuild kit help with this?

Yes, they can be dismantled and rebuilt. The rebuild kit would have all you'd need, supposedly.

Me? I'm on the lazy side, I'd pick up that set of 6 new injectors for $103 and swap them all out. But not my money, not my truck *grins*

Default injector servicing 1

Check around I had injectors serviced for 27 bucks apiece. If I were you I would go that route let someone else fix and fix it right.

Where are you getting 6 injectors for $103? Or am I reading that wrong?

As mentioned earlier, I found http://www.ebay.com/itm/BEST-UPGRADE-Genuine-Bosch-Dodge-Chrysler-3-8L-3-9L-Set-Of-6-Fuel-Injector-/111372246963?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Year%3A1995%7CModel%3ADakota&hash=item19ee4d9fb3&vxp=mtr (rounded to $103).

And it may be! I bought a set of eight off Ebay for my 1991 Cougar when three of my injectors failed (came apart!), for $140. They're working great, and were 4-hole pintle upgrades from the factory 1-hole pintles.

I can't recommend them. I can't FAULT them either (the link I posted).
