I have a 1989 Jeep Comanche 4.0L that looks different than your engine pictures. I have Googled replacing the injectors on my model Jeep, but only came up with your tutorial for a 1996 Jeep Cherokee. My fuel rail connections are different than yours, and the injectors seem to be using some sort of clip attachment. Could you please direct me to a modified writeup for my vehicle model?

OK, it's done. If you need additional pics, I can load those as well.

IF YOU HAVE THE RENIX engine, I believe 89-91, then you can use Lincoln Towncar 90's injectors. The Renix engine uses 19lb/hr 39 psi injectors. The 1990-91 4.6L injectors which are also 19lb an hour but 36 psi and they are 4 hole injectors. OEM part number was 0280150943. Also fit Mustangs from later years. Known as the 710 as well. Some say you need to upgrade your regulator on the rail but that's probably not necessary on a stock engine.

SO, disconnect battery, and then anything electrical near the fuel rail. Relieve pressure at fuel rail with rag and pointy object! detach fuel rail and remove and swap injectors. Go backwards to re-install and cycle key to prime rail and check for leaks at rail and injectors before you turn the engine over.


I believe this is what you want

There are 3 hole, 4 hole and 6 hole variants.... do they look right to you?

Thanks. I already have purchased rebuilt 4 hole injectors. Where I am stumped is the process for removing the fuel lines and injectors from the rail. The process explained for the 1995 Sport is different than my engine that has different fuel lines , and a pressure regulator at the end of the rail. I was hoping someone could walk me through a modified detailed tutorial for my '89 Comanche where it differs from the '95 Sport described in detail here. Do I need to remove the regulator from the rail, and if I have to, do I need to replace it or any or the parts associated with it ( O rings, etc.) while replacing the injectors?
