that is okay   :-)   thanks

my Jim went to check the fuel injectors and he has never seen one
before.   I explained what the ones on my old Rabbit looked like and
he is concerned that they are only put in with O rings.    We will
get replacement O rings tomorrow so that we can replace those so that
nice new ones will be in there after we look at it.

Would anyone recommend that while he has the injectors out that he
soak them in parts cleaner or something to be sure they aren't
clogged . . . ?

Also, he wants to take the car to the car wash and wash the engine
with a high pressure hose.  I told him that I didn't think that that
was a good idea . . . that getting engine cleaner at the auto store
and just rinsing with a regular garden hose with no pressure might be
better.    He said he would avoid the electrical parts.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.   Thanks . . .
