Re: Wire on injector rubbed through
I honestly don't remember if it's the white or the black that gets power. I would imagine white is 12+ and black is ground, but I've seen some stuff that makes no sense at all. So, having said that, yes, if the white wire is the positive, you could definitely have some shorting out. I would imagine you would be getting some sort of code, though. If not, then you've probably been lucky. I would look at the bottom of the oil rail to see if there is some excessive casting flash sticking out in those spots. If not, double check that the injector is seated properly, and that the wires are routed through their looms correctly. And if all else fails, put something between the wire as a buffer which won't be able to move or fall out of position. To seal the wire I'd give it a really good cleaning in the area of the exposed wire and would use canned plasti-dip.
