2003 Chevy Malibu 6 cyl Automatic 30,500 miles

purchased vehicle 18 months ago, mileage 9,000.
mileage now 30,500 - primary use is to and from
work, a distance of 3 miles each way. Last Friday
after driving approximately 4 miles, the "check engine"
light came on accompanied by a mild missing.
This only lasted for a minute or two and the
light went off and the miss disappeared. Have driven the car since then without any problem.
put a new air cleaner in at about 27,500 miles.

took in to GM dealership - they say that the problem is a fuel injecter or the fuel injecter terminal.

is this a common problem with the 2003 Malibu?
are there other things to try first (such as fuel filter)
before having a $375.00 repair?

Thanks

I would take it to autozone first, and have them scan it, and that way you will get the correct fault code, and you can let us know(me) what it is and I(we) can look it up, and its free. As far as the injector being a common problem on those cars, I dont think so, its more than likely a fault with the workmanship thats all, it couldve just went bad.
