Engine Performance problem
1998 GMC Jimmy 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
My mechanic says I need a new fuel injection system and that there is an upgrade system, other than the original system that it has. He said he has replace numerous spider injection systems on the Jimmy and the upgrade though expensive isn't that much better, because they both have a very small plastic carbon ( I think that was the wording I'm not sure) hoses, and the upgrade system wasn't improved that much to make a big difference. What is the difference between the 2, and is the difference big enough that it is going to take care of the problem?
The suggestion was to sell my car. I love my car, but I don't have the money to keep replacing the fuel injection system. I was told it probably won't last very long, that it is a poor excuse for a fuel injection system, very problematic. Is this true? I have been going to this mechanic for 15 years?
Please help. Thank you for your time.
