I have a 2017 5.7L Daytona model with just under 80k miles. Had my oil changed and the guy says he thinks one of my fuel injectors is leaking and needs immediate attention.
I have no issues replacing the rails, o rings and injectors if I need to as I don't want any issues with my car but if I don't need to then I don't want to waste the money.
I will try to attach a couple of pictures but on the right side of the engine near the injectors there is definitely some type of consistent moisture while the left side is bone dry so that worries me. However, I have zero issues. No misfires, no rough driving or idle, no codes showing and definitely no smell of gasoline at any time.
Just looking for some thoughts and opinions on what some Charger owners think. Curious if injectors are a common issue with my model. You can see the moisture that I'm talking about in this picture below, I tried to dry it out with a paper towel and even a qtip but it's hard to get to. No smell of gas to me.
Looks more like oil residue to me and if you look at the oil fill tube it is wet looking and is close to where you suspect a fuel leak. Leaking fuel injectors are not that common, in a 6 year old car or 80,000 miles.
Also the intake manifold bolts are known to be loose from the factory and they like to back out. If you aren’t having any idle issues I doubt it’s the manifold bolts though. Clean it up and keep an eye on it, I’m willing to bet it’s oil from a sloppy change or an o-ring like others have said…
