I have a 98 Oldsmobile Aurora. My mechanic said I have a cracked seal on one of my fuel injectors, so I need to replace the entire fuel rail. Forgive me as I've probably used some incorrect terms because I'm new, but can't they get a fuel rail and replace the injectors that are still good?
Is anyone in the Austin, Texas area who knows a mechanic who works on Aurora's?
I have a 1997, and my original plastic fuel rail sprang a leak/crack. Scary stuff! I replaced it with the GM replacement aluminum metal fuel rail, but kept all my injectors, etc. Transferred them to new fuel rail. Cost me about $100, and did the job myself. This was about two years ago, they still had the part at GM.
Yep the 1997 is included in the fuel rail recall. I believe since it's a safety issue GM still has to honor it so you may actually have been able to get that rail and the labor of replacement for free.
As to the original question, yes you should be able to swap over any working injectors to the replacement rail.

BTW, For Canadian owners, the fuel rail recall was not for the Canadian market. I presume with half the year being cold that they figured it would last, but probably just because GM didn't have to honour it up here. I was going to do the work myself but since my Jeep needs work the Aurora is getting driven. Certainly by next summer it will be done with the stainless steel rail. Don't need a fire. Fred
