    Do you take regular oilsamples?
    Friend off mine had cups 2 times in the life off his D13.
    Both times he had fuel where you don't want it.

    I got the kits from Blackstone. They are free BTW. But, I haven't had the cajones to send it off yet. I'm afraid of what I might learn. :/

    I have a 09 volvo with a d13, it seems to me by reading the form if the injector bolts stretch the injector will lift and put pressure on the camchaft causing it to wear. By simply re torquing did you have to reset the rocker for the injectors? does re torquing solve two problems? ( take the pressure off the camshaft and bring the injector placement back to manufactures specs )? Please reply to larrygoritz@hotmail.ca

    Man this is such a crazy ongoing problem with these engines it's a wonder there hasn't been a class action lawsuit......maybe someone reading this form has access to a lawyer that would be interested in getting something started it's about high-time that Volvo correct this problem that has caused people tremendous amounts of loss !!

    I think I might have this injector cup problem.

    Check engine fault code just popped up on dash as I was driving.

    SPN: 1127 FMI: 18

    I’m currently in Texas but I’m from CA. Can I drive 1,500 miles back to my mechanic or do I need to take care of this immediately?

    Side note;
    Injector hold down bolts should be replaced with every overhead or cup job maybe.
