    Was changing my spark plugs yesterday, had a retard moment and ended up busting an o-ring on a fuel injector. Took a 6 mile round trip walk to get a replacement and got it replaced. It was all good last night and before I took a drive this morning I decided to check to make sure and guess what...another one had busted. Had to spend 40 bucks on a cab to go get more replacements...:crapstorm:

    I don't understand. How is it possible to bust o-rings on a fuel injectors when all one is doing is replacing spark plugs? :smack:

    Can someone please explain how this is possible? :confused:

    That sucks. Sorry. And there is a list of codes for our Taco's so instead of going to autozone and buying stuff trying to fix it. Clean the MAF sensor like posted above. :D
