Re: 3RZ Injectors

I also had to replace no3 on my 3rz hilux, tried all over and the agents was the only option. Everyone looked as me as if I was mad looking for those things "cause they never break". but turned out when cold the injector would go open circuit hence miss firing and not reading the signal from the ECU.
