My Touareg has done 295,000km and has no problems with the fuel injectors that I can see but I'm being told by many people that my fuel injectors are past needing a service and because they are pompe duse it would be very expensive.

So I started to research and found that they are expensive to buy but I don't really know about compared to regular injectors.

I looked up servicing kits and found them to be quite cheap and apparently quite straightforward.

For the price of new nozzles I wouldn't attempt any repair or reconditioning, and for the pump it just looks like some seals as well as the fitting seals.

Can anyone add to my paucity of knowledge here?

Have you tried the sister site?

www.clubtouareg.com

There's a good Oz section there.

Don't forget to add your vehicle/engine details.

I can guarantee that the injectors are the same as the Passat equivalent, I have 5 fitted to my 06 R5 touareg

Personally, I would leave them alone until you NEED to do them, as they don't just "pop out" and there's a bit of work involved in both removing the old ones and setting up the new ones

Thanks. It was good to find someone who actually knows.

I bought my Treg with 370000kms and 1 of the injectors was gone off the reservation which is why I fitted 5 as it's more or less the same hassle to fit 5 as it is to fit 1

I wouldn't be concerned about starship miles provided it has been well serviced
