sr20de injectors failing?
About 6 months ago I changed #4 injector. Car sounded like a Subaru when running and very weak. After I changed it, it ran like normal. This morning when I started the car, it sounded like a Subaru again!! Pulled the injector wires one by one to see which one is faulting and it is now injector #3. Just got done changing out the injector and now the car is running like normal again. Has anyone ever had injectors fail back to back like this?

yes, it's called age... It is to be expected IMHO. I went on a big road trip to Alaska and back and knew I could blow not 1 but 2 injectors putting on 13k miles for my monster road trip and sure enough, Injector #2 went in Canada but popped in the replacement and back on the road.... not even 200 miles later in Seattle, WA #4 injector went.... so popped in the next one and fortunately made it home after another 3000 miles and THEN #3 went literally 2 days after getting home.... After that I was taking bets before #1 went (it actually took another 3 months to go)...

Now my friend went though having #1 go bad and then #4 about 2 weeks later.. guess what, they are all original to the car at 189k miles so shit gets worn out!

Idk if it matters but this is a jdm DE motor. I would understand if it was the original motor. I will be upgrading the fuel filter just because. Hopefully it helps.. I just thought the injectors on these motors rarely fail..

its not the mileage that kills them its the age and how long they have sat with gas in them not being used that's a huge factor
