    Truck is in the shop and the dealership wants $800 for a single injector. The number 3 cylinder kept having P303 for a misfire, I swapped both the coil and spark plugs prior to sending it to the shop. I’m sure I can do it myself but need to know what is the best way. They also can’t get me the injector until Monday so I’m looking into Autozone also.
    Pros?
    Cons?
    Just need some insight. Looks like it is pretty straight forward. But want to know what I need as far as seals etc. I carry a large tool box so not worried about tools.

    I never priced injectors from Autozone or Oreilly when I replaced my injectors. I bought a set (4) OEM refurbs off Ebay for ~$100. I'm not familiar with that code either. Swapping the injectors isn't too bad. Pull air intake and maybe the TB, then fuel rail. The Oring from the injector will go right back on the new one/ones. Make SURE you use a little bit of lube on the Oring when you put the injector back into the head. Hopefully someone will chime in if I forgot to mention something.

    Getting an injector delivered tomorrow from O’Reileys in order to save time. Beings I’m out in West Texas and don’t trust anyone, this is only logical.

    $129 for the injector and it will be here in the AM. I’ll look into getting a full set of OEM if I can find them for the price you said, and just have new all the way across. Ohhh the perks of having older vehicles.

    I hope that fixes it, sure sounds like it will. I've had a spare vehicle for well over 10 years and it is certainly piece of mind when a problem arises.

    And I think I have a burnt valve. Check engine light came back on and still has a sputter.

    I’m like 12 miles shy of 200k. I told the wife I’m getting a turbo for it, and she said well there goes the motor. :rofl::rofl:

    I may try and get someone with a borescope to look into it now and just drive it for a few weeks. At this point I’m saying screw it.

    A borescope sounds like a good idea. I bought this one from Amazon and the best images I could capture were these. It works well but the mirror that goes on the end to shine upward(at valves) doesn't capture good images with this particular borescope.

    Borescope I bought: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B076RMDZL8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    A few images I captured with it:

    Thanks for the link. I may have to snag one up just to have in the tool box.

    Whatever they get as cores I assume. Either way they replace the guts with aftermarket parts to OEM spec. Havent had any issues.
