Injector plug wires showing?

I noticed this the other day. The one wire pug into my injector is showing and crap has built up. How do I best fix this. Do they sale a whole wire kit. Could this injector not being working well do to this and Nate why my car is running lean and my spark plugs are frosty white. Any info would be great. Thanks

I would suggest keeping an eye out for a good injector harness. I would say you could probably cut it and splice a new plug in there but honestly I wouldn't do it to my car so I can't recommend it myself.

Oh he was hungry he ate up my salt shaker too!..in da first pic you can see some da shrubbery he was plannin on campin out! Oh trust me I had lil cap fulls of antifreeze under my hood overnight!..i wanted him DEAD!!..he lived in a tree outside my place so I finally caught up wit him and shot him in da face!.
Sorry if this offends anyone. I love animals but this was a pest!..he had it comin!!

And to the OP as long as you can solder there is no problem splicing the wires and using a pigtail. Just make sure your solder is strong and cover it with heat shrink tube. The tube has uh...sniz in it that when it heats up and shrinks it will seal it from corrosion. Then use electrical tape like the original harness.
It almost looks to me like a pest might have been nippin at your harness as well :/

Ps..^dats what she said!!

If the wires are not touching each other your probably ok right now,,take some liquid tape and apply several coats on it ,,that will seal it up..They sell it at oreillys i think,,its called liquid tape,,it works pretty well,,Also make sure there is no strands broken or loose in the connector..Sometimes if have to pierce a wire during testing at work ,,it leaves a small hole and i use that liquid tape to seal it back up,,when it dries its like a rubber coating

Well I think it's fixed pretty good for now and maybe forever. It wasn't corrosion. It's was the outer casing getting all crusty and dry. Slit the tape back. Put corrosion cleaner and then protection on it. Then taped it singly and the both together and up around the plug. Should hold and stay clean.

I may actually do that too. Already doctored it up but that may be good too.
