hey thanks for bringing me up to speed. ive been working on many other problems but with your great explanation i remember.
we need to check the compression on that cyl. and compare it to the compression on 2 other cylinders your choice.
but before you do this get a can of carb cleaner . and with the car idling spray around the intake manifold in the area of #6 cyl. what we are looking for is a small vacuum leak that would also act like this. with the engine idling and spraying around the intake the engines idle sould not change and if it does when you spray you have an intake leaking.
let me know how it turns out.

It does sound a bit on the higher side, but then dealerships usually are. The good thing about it is that they will replace with brand new and genuine parts, often giving a warranty for the part replaced. You can also get them to give you a written guarantee that this will fix the problem. However, they will have to replace all four injectors as they say, because the genuine replacement comes as a full set.
You can get it replaced individually by a local mechanic, probably, but then you can be sure that the part will definitely be second hand, and there is no guarantee/warranty.
You will have to decide between going in for a genuine (more expensive) replacement which should last you for a while,, or going in for a second hand spare which may be cheaper, but may fail at any time.
If you wish, you can buy quality spares from this site:
You will have to contact them directly for a quote, as prices are not mentioned on the website. As for the cost of labor, different shops have different rates, so you will have to make a couple of enquiries to get an average price. Once you have this info, you can contact a reliable mechanic and bargain for repair costs.
As to whether replacing the injectors will resolve the problem, well...its impossible to say without doing a manual inspection and testing. I'm sure the dealership know what they are talking about, as they would no doubt have made the required inspections and testing..
Hope that helps!

Hi,, Well the service engine light comes on when your car needs to be tuned up, this happens when the timing belt needs changing or nearing its life span. Basically it involves changing the belt (optionally >) engine oil, transmission fluid, radiator coolant, fuel injection and throttle body servicing, changing gas filter, air filter etc. Its to prevent damages to your car. After its serviced the mechanic will need to clear all error codes and reset the cars computer. Clearing the error codes is done with a diagnostic tool, to reset the cars computer , remove the negative battery pole and press the brak as far as it will go, wait 60 second release and reconnect the battery pole. Some vehicles may need to be caliberated if it has an electronic throttle body system

The ECM is very possible.I assume cylinder 4 injector is providing gas?The connection for cylinder 1 is probably a connector with pins correct?If you can bypass the ECM,that would get you closer if not give the answer.I would try using a wire straight from the battery to the injector electric somehow without damaging the wires.For years,if i had an extension cord which was old,I cut off the ends and save it just for troubleshooting occasions like this is a good example.If you do the bypass,try to hold the wire with something other than skin.I have leather gardening gloves,pliers.The gloves are better for steadiness and pliers are metal.It is not likely that it should melt but doing electrical work for so many years,an ounce of prevention is worth way way more than a pound of cure.If it did melt,it would stick and probably a couple weeks worth of pain.I would like to know how you make out.If you reply back to this post I will get an autolink to your post.Good luck! Greg
P.S.Was your error code from the car's own system and not a shop?I am trying to figure out what year that system started.
