Post subject: Fuel injector tip

I have a broken fuel injector tip, it's only the plastic tip. Does anyone know if I can just replace that tip? And if so does anyone have a green plastic tip?

That's called a Pintle cap. You can get them at NAPA. I'd replace all of them along with the o-rings. Not much money and he car generally runs better as a result.

Thank you, informative & appreciated.

So I couldint find any on napa that looked like they "belong". I'm not to sure if I need a specific type or length, but I did find a set on ebay for bmw, i6, and looked the same, there's a yellow set and black set. One is 1.5mm and one is 3mm. Sence it comes with both and all o-rings I think that's my winner. What does the 1.5mm size difference do for me though?

Just the tip... The 1.5mm opening is for the single pintle style injector and the 3mm is for the 4 pintle design. I've used the 3mm on both before without a problem, just allows for more room for shit to build up around the piss hole. Smegma if you will.

I know this is oldish, but hope that helps.
