You can replace everything they told you for under a grand and about 6 hrs of your time.

Ya there is some injector "How To" in the Tech forum. Glow plugs are very simple. Im sure there is also another tech file on that replacement as well. You can get your injectors rebuilt, or order a set and send back your old ones for a core dept. Go with IH for glowplugs or factory OEM. While your at it replace the valve cover gasket, it has all the wiring for the injectors and glow plugs pre installed in them. The hardest part of the entire job will be getting the darn bolts out closest to the fire wall on the valve covers...
