I have a few injectors that wont fire, Ive tried to pulse them off the battery but they dont want to fire. IS there a chemical I can buy to soak them in? or is there a special method to clean them?
Or should I throw them in the bin and look for others?

thanks

I don't know of anything to buy that you can soak them in. Best way I found is to have them professionally cleaned off the car. I believe its a ultrasonic cleaner. Cost is usually around $20ea injector.

It does if they aren't RS, sometimes injectors fail, like everything in life.

I was just about to tell you to do that. When they sit for a long period of time, even if they have been cleaned they can sometimes stick. A tap while pulsing the injector will normally get them going again.
