To raise a point on this , i have known single injectors go down but to get all 4 at same time seems a little strange , would have appriciated to know how many miles car had done and a bit more info on service history . but for it not to start at all is pointing me to look further afield as to why it would not start , i know the AA are pretty good but when it comes to diagnostics on pugs they are not experts on that make just as most main dealers are . sometimes they will just throw parts at it hoping they cure the problem and of course charge you well for it . think i would have asked if it does not work are they prepared to refund my costs ? that usually makes them splutter a bit and sometimes have a re-think ! but yes i agree with one poster i do think they are getting the originals "reconned " and charging you for new , when diagnostics are done as one poster says each injector has it own id so would have liked a print out of before and after to see if IDs have changed !

Just to make this a little more murky, I've always understood "new" injectors from Peugeot are reconditioned anyway!
I do know they are sold on an exchange basis.

Hi Richard, I know injectors are a bit pricey but £2k? That seems rather expensive.
Can you tell us about the car, is it a 2L or 1.6L? What diesel retailer have you been using? mileage? Service history?
With that information you may get some replies...

If all the injectors have been replaced and the fault still exists, then a pound to a penny it wasn't the injectors in the first place, or the garage have made a mess of fitting them.
You don't say what fault you were experiencing.

Sound like the usual throw parts at it until its fixed. As above sounds like injectors were not the fault. Do you know the fault codes.

Common faults which people miss are chafing of fuel pipes, sticking fuel regulator and fuel filters or similar faults which give low or high fuel pressure faults resulting in some garages changing injectors, rail sensors and various other parts and not curing the faults.

I would find a good diesel specialist to check it out as they know what they are doing unlike most dealer "Technicians"
