Injectors have what is called a crack pressure this is the pressure that the fuel forces the needlepintle off its seat, and allows fuel to flow through the tip of the injector. When an engine is idling, there is a vacuum in the intake manifold. The pressure of the fuel in the delivery chamber being forced through the tip of the injector nozzle will be 4,200 psi. Plus they didnt pop they kinda just took a diesel piss.
Other tools needed are a torque wrench, a big socket, steel brushes, brass brushes, brass pick tools for cleaning old nozzles, a small pick, a good digital dial. For a diesel engine to start there must be pressure built up in the fuel rail. Effect of injection timing and injector opening pressures.

Fuel enters the injector through an opening on the side of the injector body, which is delivered by the fuel pump and surrounds the injector through passages in the cylinder head. Electronically operated fuel combustion in engines comes with many inherent problems, including fuel loss, volumetric inefficiency, and nonuniform distribution of fuel, among others. Cracks are generally caused by over heating and because this area is thin, it is most susceptible to cracking. Figure 12a shows a reduction of about % in the maximum flowrate occurs at the central phase of the injection for the long energizing time.
