2008 Chevrolet Impala Question: Do fuel injectors require replacement after 60K if no problems with the car are

 

Question

My car has 66K on it, without any problems. When I brought it in recently for an routine oil change, the shop insisted I needed to replace my injectors as part of 60K routine maintenance. I have never heard such a thing - have you?

    Replace? Definitely not.
    However, a fuel system cleaning, such as a BG induction system service, could be recommended and may b e beneficial. How much are they asking for this service? If it is in the neighborhood of $80-120, then they are offering a cleaning service. Replacing the injectors would cost several hundred dollars.

    no they dont need to be replaced. they can last for over 200,000 miles, you should only need to replace them if u can see gas leaking from where it sits in the intake manifold or where the fuel rail sits over the top of the injectors
