injector hell

last week i changed out a faulty injector on cylinder 1…much Thanks to a few forum members for helping with a loaner cable and inpa remote install and coding… three days later the injector pops out of the block and cracks the fuel line,spraying fuel everywhere…. my question is before i replace all 6 injectors (already ordered), new decouplers, is there anything that i need to do to clean the injector hole out? also does anyone have the part number for the injector #1 fuel line? local shop had no idea

thanks in advance

Rick

How did the injector pop out with the metal bracket holding it in? Did you forget to re-attach it?

Who did the install? You may want to look for a new shop/mechanic if you're interested in avoiding an engine fire

it was i who did the install…new decoupler, injector seated perfectly, retaining plate was in place… I honestly have no idea how the heck that could happen. Hopefully there isn't any damage to the head…. usually my luck
