How to bleed fuel injectors?

Since I got a problem in this area I tried to find a procedure to do this but came up empty.

I'm guessing here that onces the fuel onjector is pulled out, you can reconenct it and put it in a plastic bag, disconnect the spark plug wires and crank the engine to get fuel flowing, is that about right?

Can anyone recomment anything else?

Uh, I think it would be quite helpful here to know what year and model you are working on.

Have a great day,

The procedure you describe is highly risky. I suggest you build a test setup if you want to examine the spray pattern - and use a different test fluid than gasoline.

Raw gasoline is flammable, but not explosive. The vapors that would build up in the plastic bag would be.

What's the difference between letting the injector spray into a bag and letting an injector spray into a cylinder? There is no downstream pressure in either case.

INJECTORS DON'T need bleeding . . . they bleed themselves . . .
