      try soaking them in seafoam fuel injector cleaner?

      or some sort of chemical solvent

      carb clean in a closed container? (so it doesn't dry up)



      This is probably a bad idea and i have never done it


      the chemistry student in me says pour some vineger in the fuel injector with them OFF THE CAR to dissolve any corrosion ( oxides of various sorts are reduced to gasses when exposed to acids)

      This could introduce more corrosion or worsen what's there so beware

      let it sit about about 5 minutes

      then heat a bit (reactions happen about twice as fast when temps are raised as little as 10 degrees)

      sit for like ten more minutes

      rinse with lots of cold water

      I mean TONS this is get the vinegar out and neutralize the surface of the injector

      then carb clean and seafoam so they don't get corroded again

      try to start it up.





      I have never done that before, but it seems worth a try if nothing else works and you're looking at buying new injectors.

      what did you do to the injectors to get them to work?

      And change your fuel filter and put some fresh gas and an octane booster/fuel injector cleaner in there.


      Change the fuel filter before you use the injector cleaner though, so you don't send crap into the fuel distro from the possibly crap saturated fuel filter.
