Well, after the GTO has been in the shop 3 full days, they are still working on it. After saying the #7 injector has failed again, they have traced the problem to "rust on the inside of the gas tank". A new tank is expected arrive tomorrow. I still can't figure out how the rust would get past the "lifetime" fuel filter and damage the injectors. Key is looking into that further. Right now the repair consists of all new injectors (possibly--could be 10 total when all is said and done), cleaned fuel rail, cleaned fuel lines (I presume), new fuel pump/filter assembly, new gas tank, a plug, a coil, 6 full days of time in the shop, and 4 days of rental car coverage. Yowzah! Just glad I am not paying the bill. That could be a doozy! This kind of investment in a house is called building equity...
I feel better, but the rust past the filter issue doesn't sit well with me. I hope they get it squared away, but my confidence is not all there. I will absolutely give them their fair chance and benefit of the doubt though. Thankfully, I am quite patient, and a mechanical engineering background helps.
Anyone else go through anything even remotely like this??? I hope not.
