Hey,
I've got myself a 1988 Pajero 2.5L Turbo Diesel and it has been leaking something black for a little while. Part of the problem is a dodgy injector that is oozing around the base which I'd like to get fixed.

My folks get all their stuff done through ARB but that's not really in my price range for this car. I could take it to Kmart and they'd just send it out to whichever contractor does their injector work but thought I'd check here first.

Anyone know of any diesel mechanics in the South Eastern suburbs (I'm in Brighton) who you'd recommend to fix/replace the injector/s and do any future general servicing?

Cheers,
.Mot

thanks Truckster, I'd actually seen these guys listed in the Yellow Pages. Are their prices reasonable?

Just had my pump and injectors done in last 2 mths, they were $100s cheaper than other.s

They have an extremely good reputation and name within our club too.. Highly recommended..

Talk to Clinton there.

Another thing, it aint cheap to get injectors or fuel pump on a diesel done, you wont get change from $1200-2000 depending on the car and what needs to be done.

Sounds like all you need is a copper gasket, no big deal, I can help if you want to drive to Officer. Eric.

Thanks for the offer Eric - a copper gasket sounds like a much more wallet-friendly alternative to the ~$2,000 Truckster was talking about. If it's gonna cost that much I may just prefer to let is leak and pay to have my parent's driveway cleaned.

I'm at work today but when I get home I might see if I can get a reasonable pic of the injector and post it and you can see if you still thinks it's just a gasket. Don't know if it'll help but it might save both our time if it's clearly something else.

Alrighty, took some pictures of the injector when I got home hopefully the linking will work. I've got others if anyone's interested and in higher res.
