WELL, it is happening to me again. After the rich codes, I started tearing it down again to find the main injector plug area filled with gas again, and the back of the manifold had gas pooled in it, even after reseating the o-rings properly. I guess this time the whole unit it gonna be replaced, it must have hairline cracks. ( No NEBF for me. :(

I swear the car gods hate me. I want my Bonne back. :(

Got the intake off. the LIM is clean and no leaks on the underside, just the top o-rings where the injector plug connects. It is highly likely that the unit has a crack in it. Time to pour $216.99 into it for a new, updated unit. As I said, no NEBF for me now. :(

Estimated repair costs -

New or used "Updated" style CSFI Unit - New - $216.99, used - $???.??
Front rotors - $40 a piece
Wheel bearings - $12.99 a piece
Calipers $9.99 each
Ceramic pads - $??.??
All new brake lines and hoses - $50.00?
New feed and return fuel lines (custom made) - $30-40?
Fuel Filter - 10.00?

Total - Est. $430.00-475.00

Not bad considering I was gonna replace less parts on the BMW for almost $1500.00

Yeah, bad thing is it needs the brakes badly. They are the original rotors and they wore away around the outside, and they are smaller than the pads, and they are severely grooving the pads, and it has very squishy stops which were scaring me to death. So I am gonna replace those and all related parts to prevent further problems. And then pretty much everything else like the CSDI unit and the lines I need to get it running again. Like I said before, I have no intention of getting rid of it for quite a while, as a truck is very practical for me and the things I do.

I would prioritize as:

Absolutely neccessary to run
Safety
Needs fixed, but will work for now

Of course, if your estimates are correct, it ain't too bad a repair bill for a vehicle you definitely want to keep

Wow, those calipers and wheel bearings are cheap ($13 and $10).

Those repairs don't seem too bad to me either. Just don't spend money on something that isn't broken. Take one thing at a time. I got overwhelmed at one point when I had a list of things to fix, but took care of them little by little....every weekend.

Yeah I am def. not going to rush all this stuff. I almost never rush when it comes to car work. I double and triple check my work to make sure it'* correct. My dad is going to bend the brake lines for me, since he is a machinist and worked at a steel plant/pipe factory for a while, so I'll leave that to him.
