    Well the injectors are leaking fuel onto the top of the intake manifold.

    Not only is this a fire hazard, it makes the car hard to start especially when the engine is cold and the fuel pressure has bled off.

    The cause?

    ...Might just be the grommets on top and bottom (in the fuel rail and manifold seat)?

    Or is it more probably the injectors themselves leaking from their assembly where plastic meets metal?

    Where can I get some new grommets besides the dealer?

    For what make/model? Anything with USDM B16a?

    Any help is appriciated! Don't want this thing to burst into flames! It's also hell on the starter cuz of hard starts.

    THANKS

    make sure that the fuel rail is tightly bolted down.
    if so, try changing out the o rings on top and bottom of injectors, cheap and easy.
    once you change them it easier to get the injectors in the correct position by wetting the o rings with gas, makes them slide in very easy.

    most likely one of these two things, you can get o rings at any parts house. if this dont work then use it as an excuse to get bigger injectors. cant loose.
