    I have a 2000 honda civic gx which had been sitting for about a year.One injector is not working.Do I have to replace it or is there a way it can be unclogged.

    I know it's costly , $550 + labor at the dealer , but IMHO, this is the best choice. Driving with a bad one can kill one or both catalists, and that is real money to replace $,$$$ . Oem honda injectors can be found at 30% off at bernardi or majestic , or south bay honda on the internet.

      It could be stuck not clogged. If it is stuck it will not click like the other injectors. I had a 2000 f-150 dedicated that, after being parked for a few months, had a fuel injector that stuck. I fixed it by removing the injector and applied short(1/2 second) 12 volt pulses to the injector while tapping on it. After it freed up I flushed it out (still out of the car) using alcohol in a pressure flusher while pulsing the injector.

          I've had about a 50% success rate having them rebuilt. If it doesn't work, you can find GX injectors at autozone for about $140.

            Check out "Lindertech" online. Doug runs the injector service and is the injector guru --- he knows his stuff.
