2 months ago I had a leak on injector #4. It was replaced for a used one, it worked just fine

Now Iím having the same issue again, this time injector #2 is leaking

So I have decided to work o all 6 injectors this time

What do you recommend?

The best option for me is replacing o-rings and put all 6 injectors on ultrasonic machine for extreme cleaning, I think this is the best option, am I right?

Other option would be replace all six injectors for new ones, but they are 60 dll each

Ultrasonic cleaning job is 160 dll with handle and o-rings included (all 6 injectors), 3 months warranty

Did I make right decision?


Thanks

UPDATE

After the job was done the issue stilled, then I had the code about rich fuel mixture

My guest was the fuel pressure regulator, it was broken so the gas was suctioned by the vacuum line to the intake plenum

The gas excess into the vacuum line was the cause of this issue

Replaced regulator with new one, now it works as fine as ever, issue solved.....

Being that you are in the USA. Try this link

Dodge Recall Database (http://www-5.dodge.com/webselfservice/dodge/index.jsp?screenName=recall&country=us&emailUrl=goToEmailForm%28%27R%27%29)

For any Canadians:
Canadian Dodge Recall Database (http://www.daimlerchrysler.ca/CA/03/EN/OWNERS/1,,CA-03-EN-OWNERS-VEHICLE_RECALL,.html)

Just replace the O-Rings. That is my advice. It's quite easy and cheap.
