    Mine are leaky. New ones $100+ each. Are the ones AutoZone sells (Sorenson) any good?
    I forget what the dealer wanted but it was big bucks. thanks

    I have never heard of them being rebuilt ....... I deal with this kinda stuff everyday ...... but then this area sucks in parts and services like that so I could be wrong ....... When mine went out I just replaced them ......

    Mine were doing the same thing, I went to the junk yard and pulled a bunch.. pocketed a few (shhhhh) and then bought a couple I think I only paid a couple bucks or so.... the first 2 I put in worked fine... so now I have a couple spares.... Good luck...

    Turbo City lists flow matched injectors for $69.95 each. Look about 3/4's of the way down the page at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.turbocity.com/TBIPowerMain.htm>http://www.turbocity.com/TBIPowerMain.htm</A>

    To answer your ? yes they can be rebuilt, but why, if you look in the right place(s) you should be able to buy
    BRAND NEW ONES(NEVER USED ON A VEHIVLE BEFORE YOU INSTALL THEM), for less $$ then the
    cheapest bebuild.
    Happy hunting

    That price sounds about right. I bought one for my old 4cyl and it was about $60, one for my MPFI 6cyl was $80 but that's a totally different style injector. You know it only costs Bosch about $5 to make an injector... talk about markup!! BTW, those prices were from Parts America before they became Advance.
