Man some of my injectors are leaking bad. It's dripping all the way down to the oil filter lol...
Reckon that would be affecting the way the car runs at all? Seems to be running fine though.
I'm going to be replacing the o-rings, that's all that's need to fix a leak isn't it?
Cheers.

A dozen newbies should do it - a little engine oil on each before installing will help too . . . . . .

Hopefully only the o rings have perished, but check the fuel rail sockets are clean, same with the head as well . . .

What's the go with them? Looks like the leak is emanating from where the injector clips ont the fuel rail...
