Have you sorted the engine mounts yet?
Dont want to play more than I have to with supressing vibration yet, trying to cure at source first, will then do any replacements needed.  Engine can no longer jump around, rear view mirror now clear, not blurred as its not vibrating, thats enough for me at the mo.
Car seems smoother with each little trip so far

injector back out, recleaned everything more throughly, put washer down the well, installed injector.  No leaks

Very rough when it started, reading over 5.
quick drive <1 mile, and down to 1, but still a bit rough, will see how it goes for a bit, and maybe even give it the cleaning diesel when I fill up

Yes. Seal remained in but got it out easily a tapered full round file slid in and gripped it no problem.

Carefully fitted new seal to new injector and fitted. Should I have pushed the washer on myself or let the engine do that?

Well swapped the injector over, went ok considering it was a learning exercise.
New on in and programmed, took a bit of starting, and is still rough,  went to look at the engine and new injector was sat in a pool of diesel bubbling up, so doesnt look like its sealed :(

No idea why, or if Ive done something wrong, Ill revist tomorrow as rain has stopped play :(

They clean and test a set of 4 for £85. A refurb is 130 per injector. Less testing fee. Struck me as a little dear. But not sure.

The one that wasnít in the box is cleaner than the other 2. Has indeed some of the markings rubbed off. And has blue paint on seal nut. So guess thatís the one to use.

Marks memory test....

You gave me 3 injectors...

2 in a Bosch box, 1 is loose, the other in a bag, with white paint on the end of the injector.
1 is in a bag on it own.

which do you recon is the best?

My 14 year old loved watching it on TV, helpfully on an inset day.
But he does love that sort of stuff, and in Air cadets has been known to let other people have a go when he knows too much history ;D

my Z19DTH Zafira's engine is shaking a bit, when idling, which is transmitted to the cabin, and is annoying.
It was there before Exhaust fell off, and Clutch leaked and got replaced.  Its still there now, and I think its worse.

Following an unrelated noise which has been resolved by the garage who did the clutch (tightening something) they advised engine mounts shot, so Ive added powerflex inserts to them, which has changed the noise, and supported the engine much better.  Does seem to transmit the vibration more though.

Following a good look, Ive noticed the below - Injection Quantity Deviation seems to show a possible injector issue

I beleive the 1st 2 arent far enough out to worry about, and I think no4 with the minus figure is the ecu trying to even out from cyl3.

So what to do?
Is some sort of fuel system / injector cleaner worth a shot?
Or should I chuck another one on?  Think Ive got one in the spares pile, but no idea on the procedure to change?  gather i need to program its number in too?

Or any other ideas?
