Fuel Injector Fuel Line Inspection

Do not remove the nozzle assy from the air cleaner housing.

Be sure to place a piece of cloth around the fuel outlet pipe of the fuel pump and the delivery pipe of the throttle body assy.


Fuel is flammable and explosive under certain conditions and can cause severe burns. Be prepared for fuel spillage; any spilled fuel must be completely wiped up immediately. When the fuel hose is disconnected, fuel spills out from the hose and the pipe because of residual pressure. Cover the hose connection with a piece of clean cloth to prevent fuel spillage.

Connect a commercially available vacuum/pressure pump [A] to the nipple of the delivery pipe [B] with the fuel hose [C] (both ends with the clamps [D]) as shown in the figure.

Fuel Injector Fuel Line Inspection

Apply soap and water solution to the areas [J] as shown in the figure.

Watching the pressure gauge, squeeze the pump lever, and build up the pressure until the pressure reaches the maximum pressure.

Injector Fuel Line Maximum Pressure Standard: 300 kPa (3.06 kgf/cm², 43 psi)


During pressure testing, do not exceed the maximum pressure for which the system is designed.

Watch the gauge for at least 6 seconds.

If the pressure holds steady, the fuel line is good.

If the pressure drops at once or if bubbles are found in the area, the fuel line is leaking. Replace the delivery pipe assy, injectors and related parts.

Install: Primary and Secondary Fuel Hoses (see Fuel Hose Replacement in the Periodic Maintenance chapter) Air Cleaner Housing (see Air Cleaner Housing Removal) Fuel Tank (see Fuel Tank Removal)

Start the engine and check for fuel leakage.
