Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** master tech here to help. I cannot see or hear your vehicle so I rely on your patience and input to my questions so I can help you better. I read your notes and have a suggestion. It is possible they are clogged you may have picked up some bad fuel They don't have to be replaced if that is the problem . Just do a injector power flush and fuel additive in the tank. But what you need to do is protect your repair by getting everything in writing before starting the work and also go for a road test with the repair tech before you pay a cent to make sure it is fixed. If they do something they said is the problem and it doesn't fix it then they are on the hook to fix it right . Ask them why they think it is what they said it is and is it going to defiantly fix it? Is there anything else I can do for you at this time as I work towards a 5 star ratting for my service.
