Question about 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer
It has 160k miles, new brakes and was running well until we got an oil change and tune up at our local monro station. Was told it's the #2 fuel injector. Idk and don't know if it's worth fixing and what the cost will be. What to do?
First off, I'm not sure of the actual condition of the vehicle as far as the body and interior so I am un able to tell you if it is worth the money. I can say the Trailblazer is a prety good vehicle from what I have worked on and I am going by the vehicle having the 4.2 liter engine. As far as the cost and remeber I am going by you having the 4.2 liter engine, my labor guide says it takes 4 hour of time to replace 1 injector. It depends on what shop you go to as to their hourly labor rate. The cost of the injector itself list price is about $150.00 for the injector and the shop will most likely tack on a fee for materials and that varies for each shop as well. As I said labor rates are diferent. If I were to do it at my shop here in Florida, I would give an estimate to the customer of $445.14 plus tax. My hourly labor rate is $68.88 which is less than most shops and dealerships. Not sure of how the vehicle looks or how well it was maitained in the past so as far as if you should invest in the vehicle depends on that & you. If you do happen to have the 5.3 liter engine, the cost should be much less (only a couple hours of labor and the injector would cost about the same). I know this wasn't much help but hope I was able to help give you an idea as to cost and such.
