There was a little bit of power drop after mid rpm (probably due to high return
Hmm. This needs to be looked into.
My doubts with using injector cleaner is how to get the IMA code after cleaning
Just don't mix them. [;)]
And put them where they were.
Write numbers or put small colored stickers on them...

No no that's not what i am asking!.
That code printed on the injector is only valid until the first injector service. After servicing the injectors, the calibration will change completely, and a new code will be generated according to the performance of each injectors. We have to manually feed these new codes to the ECU according to the cylinders ( the process is known as Injector Coding). So the ECU can control the fuel delivery precisely.
In that sense, using a fuel injector cleaner is only a temporary solution, isn't it?[think]

Now, the gear shifts smoothly like a brand new car!
I forgot to mention that, after grinding the plastic gear inside steeeing rack with valve grinding paste, the steering feels so smooth and the sticking issue is completely gone!!

I am really enjoying the turns now!! [cheers]

What are the symptoms of broken rocker arms??
Why would it break by itself in the first place??


It would have remained hidden if not for this diy.
rocker arms breaks if you do not follow tightening / loosening sequence. Cam shaft too can break in two pieces if sequence is not followed. again all this can happen if you try to push start these mjd engines.

Thank you. I did not know that. But are you suggesting that this is what happened in the OP's SX4 ?
