Calculating the Cost of Replacing a Fuel Injector

  • Intermediate

The cost of replacing your automobile’s fuel injector does not have to break your wallet. In fact, not only does the cost depend on the make and model of your vehicle, but you can save money by knowing what exactly you need to have done or replaced. Follow this guide to understand how to best estimate the cost of replacing your car’s fuel injector.

Step 1 - Note the Make and Model of Your Car

Whether it is a sports car, older car, import or high performance automobile is also important. Basically, these vehicles will have more expensive parts, because of quality or import costs. You may also have difficulty in locating the parts.

If your vehicle does not fall into any of the above categories, as far as you and your wallet are concerned, it is a very good thing. The parts for these common automobiles will also be more common and less expensive.

Step 2 – Search the Junk Yards or Online Websites

Write down the make and model of your automobile, as well as the problems associated with your car’s fuel injector. With this information, search online sites or your local junk yard in order to locate the necessary part.

Step 3 – Estimating the Cost

You’re probably looking at less than one hundred dollars for the parts and double that amount if you include labor to have it replaced for you. For more expensive automobiles, that number easily doubles into the two to three hundred dollar range, if labor is also included.
