Yea good luck getting any help on here. I don't feel like any one is very helpful any more on here idk. But let me know or I'll let you know. I have bought new o rings and filters for my injectors. Just been meaning to put them on. Yet because I don't own a repair book either yet and I've only done something like replacing injectors with my day along time ago lol

There is not as much activity on this forum as there used to be, but use the search function.  It is a wonderful repository of everything that I have needed.  I am not an experienced mechanic, but like to take care of my own capris.   If you are not a member of the facebook group, then please consider joining it.  There are quite of the few of the experienced folks on there that are also the some of the main contributors on this forum and in many cases, you may get a quicker response.   Between this forum and the facebook group, I have found most everything that I need using search function.

It seems the links to the manuals is broken.  If you go to the general category, there is a thread about it.   Rocketman has a link to many of the manual sections on his website.

I was fortunate enough to have printed off most all sections last year.  I hope this helps.

You can see/download service manuals at www.techcapri.com


As for replacing the injectors---- remove the throttle body, disconnect the fuel lines to the rail, undo the electrical connectors to each injector, and remove a few bolts that hold the fuel rail to the intake manifold. Then you just pull the whole rail with the injectors still attached.

These cars are aging, this place was super active back in the day. If you want activity try the Facebook group, it's more active, but there is even less good info there. The signal to noise ratio is excellent here, and the FB group is mostly noise, no information retention there.
The virtue is the search function here. When I acquired the forum is was completely outdated and would have been so much easier to just start fresh. I spent several months working on finding a solution that retained all the old information, and through some vintage forum converter gymnastics I was able to migrate everything. The information is vital to owners of our cars and to their long term survival. You might not see a whole lot of folks post here but the web traffic tells a very different story.

That said, what's up with your injectors? I don't recall many people having problems with them, generally when they are a problem you can take them to a specialty shop that will clean & service them & provide a print out of the flow rates
