  1. I replaced the #2 injector today. Leak-off test went great, ran it for a minute and bottles were pretty much empty. I had about 4 oz after running it for 20 seconds last time. Tomorrow will be the big test to see if it's fixed. I didn't get the new banjo washers for the return lines yet, so think I have a small leak from them. Really don't want to pay £36 for 4 washers. May just use some M8 crush washers. IMG_6997.MOV
  2. Thanks, I sent them a message.
  3. Anyone know where I can order these online? Just the double washer? Don't have a dealer very close to me.
  4. I'm not 100% sure how good my tube hookups where. But the results seemed pretty obvious. Now to track down an injector. I ordered the copper washers the other day and they showed up already. Thanks Mackemade for talking me through it the other night
  5. I really like the car if I can get this quirk figured out. I'm only here for two years so just hope I can keep it in running order that long and sell it for something. I paid £2300, just got tires £220, changed front brakes (rotors and pads), rear brakes (calipers, rotors, and pads) for £300. So sitting at £2820 right now. Even if I have to have to swap 2 injectors I don't think it's a horrible price if I can steer clear of trouble for a bit.
  6. I couldn't find any videos showing a leak-off test on the 220d, most I saw showed removing a rubber line and then attacking the tubes to empty bottles. In our case, do I unscrew the caps off the as pictured with the blue circles here? Do do you know if i need to remove anything from the red side? Also you said to look for 2008 or newer injectors. The only part number I've found is 23670-26020. Is there a different number to search. I'm seeing used ones at £200, new was almost £500/ea. Any tips for searching?
  7. I just picked up an 06 is220d and half-way bought a lemon of a private seller. Morning after got the VSC message. My code reader finally came in and I see it's the P0093 and my symptoms are absolutely spot on with what you guys experienced. Only goes into limp mode in the morning, or even after sitting half a day. Always when letting off the gas or approaching an intersection/roundabout. Once it's warmed up its normally good for the day. I get mid-30's for MPG and the car has 111K miles. The first 3 weeks I've had the car it never did the white smoke on me. This week it's happened twice on me. It also seems to be running rich, sometimes worse than others. This would all make sense for the injectors. I read through the whole thread the other night (the day I moved into my place so I took a long break from unpacking). I know I need to run the injector leak-off test, something I've never messed with but it seems fairly east to do. Chime in if you have any advice, but really I just want to thank you guys for this thread as I'm really hoping it is the answer to my issues. -TIM
