1999 3.0 Fuel Injectors
Alright, so I'll start off with saying that I'm still a big novice when it comes to vehicle repairs, but I've been looking over online tutorials and and making things happen. I need some advice from the experts here.
I've got a 1999 V6 3.0 with 135,000 miles on it. I'm having some bad misfires in cylinder 3 and had a shop take a look at it. They've told me it's a bad fuel injector. They also said I should buy one online, get the better deal.
Now, I've been browsing but I have a few questions. One, I'm not sure if there is a difference and I haven't heard any differences until now, but out of curiosity, is there a gas only version of the 1999 automatic V6 3.0 4x4? I'm seeing a lot of Flex Fuel models, but only O'Reilly's sells "Gas" model fuel injectors. After some research into my truck, it seems as though it may be a Flex Fuel, "Ethanol or Unleaded Gas Only" is printed on the inside of my fuel door. If I'm only putting in regular unleaded gas into the truck, no Ethanol fuels up here in AK, does it really matter what fuel injector I buy?
I've done a lot of work on my truck, including spark plugs and redoing my hubs. Is the injector something easily replaced, or should I have my shop do it? If I replace one fuel injector should I just replace them all? Is there really much difference for the average driver in fuel injectors? I tow a small trailer at times but don't really go for a lot of after market modifications.
Any information would be helpful, I've been scouring the web, but now just need to ask the questions and figure it out.
