Engine Performance problem
2000 Chevy Impala 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 147000 miles
I recently had a small car dealer power wash my engine and they didnt know what they were doing and put somekind of armoral and right after my car started acting like it was running out of gas and the check engine light was blinking and says there is a missfire. So they took my to there machanic and they said at first the #1 starkplug was the problem and they cleaned it then replaced it but still the problem accured and then they said it was the injector code was coming up so they needed to take the top of the motor off and clean the injectors so I dropped off the car and they didnt want to do it because it was going to cost to much and said the injector code wasent coming on now. Now im stuck with this problem. He said he blew in the upper part of the motor where the injectors are without takink it apart and it did run great for about 30 miles the when I slowed down it started again. He said to run the car for two weeks and come back but I think there pulling my leg and want me to go away. The thing is I dont want to run my car the way it is. My manual says not to drive it when the light it on. Im thinking I have to dry out under where my injectors are because that stuff they sprayed looks wet still and holds water. (Thick) can I do it myself is it a easy job to take off the cover where it says 3.4 and dry it myself or replace the injectors? And do you have a manual that tells me how to do this?
have the same problem?
