Default Help! Stuck injectors on 3.0 (6G72).

Since I haven't got a response yet at the Dodge forum, I'll ask here. I am removing the injectors on the Shadow, and with them and the o-rings having 250k on them, I am having a very hard time getting the injectors out. They just won't budge! I have pulled and wiggled and pulled and wiggled and pulled and wiggled many times, and they just will not come out. Is there any other way to get them out without hurting the LIM or injectors? Here is 2 pics of reference, I managed to get one out, purely by luck I guess, but of course that was the one that had the leaky o-ring that went into the fuel rail.

Very possible. I'll have to spray some around the bases after it rains.

I tried PB. They just aren't budging. Anyone think of anything else?

I finally got them. It was a process of wiggling them back and forth with a screwdriver about 600 times each, and POP they finally popped out of the bosses. The o-rings were totally SHOT, they crumbled when I tried to pull them off the injectors. Caught it just in time.

I hope they do too. Nothing a little oil can fix.

Mopar has a little tool intended especially for removing the injectors, but poop on that. Next time, try a door handle remover, or even a pickle fork. Owning a Mopar is all about the improvisation.

I got them out, new orings are installed, NOW i cannot get them back into the intake manifold. They went into the rail fine, but getting them into the intake is a bitch. Any tip on that?
