Has anyone ever had an injector stick open and hydrolock there engine? This seems to have happened to my son's 84 turbo coupe. yesterday it died all of a sudden so he pulled over and tried to restart it. It would not crank over. This morning he tried it again in clear flood mode and it started but threw gas out the exhaust about 4 feet. The car has been having problems when he drives it. It will all of a sudden die and will only restart in clear flood mode. The compression is good and a new ( known good used ) ignition module was installed thinking it was ignition related.
As a side note for Barracuda. Are all 4 injectors ea82 on this car?

i once thought this happened on a friends 91 legacy. definitely had injector o-rings leaking down on the 1st cylinder. I change the o-ring/injector, and it seemed as the engine was hydro locked.

sorry to hear of your troubles; out of good conscience I'll buy it back for $50 :grin:

No, just the one injector is an EA82T. It was too cold outside and too much of a pain to change all 4. Looks like that's your next move though.. I honestly can't remember which injector it was that I changed.. think it was on the passenger side but not sure.
