Number 8 Injector Question
I took my early 99 into the dealership today because I've had an occasional rough idle and random missing at times so I ran a contribution balance with my AE and saw number 8 came up. I didn't have time to mess with it so I dropped it off to them and they checked all the wiring above and below the valve cover but of course it didn't act up for them other than the contribution balance still showed number 8.
This is where my question comes in, when I picked the truck up they told me they suspect the injector is beginning to stick on occasion and will need replaced in the near future but to wait until it gets worse. I asked them for an estimate to replace the injector and a mild heart attack followed. My local dealership wants 900 dollars to replace one injector. They say a single injector books 500 a piece through them. I was at a loss for words and told them I would most likely take care of it myself. From what I've read I need a single AB injector (is this correct?) but I don't know where to get a good priced and good quality injector, and how hard is it to replace? This is my daily driver and I can't be without it.
Sorry for the long post, and thank you for the help
