Is $735 about right for 1 injector??

The dealer just called and said my issues are due to the #4 injector. I was quoted $735 to have it replaced. Does that sound about right?

It's the 3rd day for their new service manager and I think he wants to make an impression. He dropped the price to $600 complete. Still more than I wanted to pay but they gotta eat too.

IMHO i would do it my self. An injector up here in west branch, costs $541 before you give your core back. All you really need to do an injector change is a 10mm deep well socket, 12mm wrench, 8mm six sided box end wrench, and a T28 torx. i can have an injector changed and up and running in about 2-3 hours. hardest part is getting the 2 valve cover bolts and oil rail bolts by the evap canister.

I beleive it. An independent shop quoted me $400.00. But they have the advantage of just installing because the dealer already determined which injector was bad. I would have to pay a diagnostic fee already so I'm just having the dealer do it.
The next time around I will do it myself.
