So further work to be done .
They also replaced the brake vacuum sensor as the stop start was not working .
The fault was cleared but the stop start still is not working .
The cleaned area .
concerning its had that injector out or changed before and you still have a issue not sealing, i would now question whether last owner drove it with seal leaking for a while and has damaged the injector seat in the head..
below is a link for cutting tool to clean and cut fresh seat for injector to sit on

disclaimer,,, but it might not be true
