That's for a top of the line OTC, available at almost all auto parts stores,
or Mac Tools. Snap On will try to sell you something they say is better, but
as most technicians know. Snap On electronics are third in line, number one
Your mechanic may be right but if you want to try a cheaper solution, here
is one. Get a good fuel injector cleaner, I use Marvel Mystery Oil. Get on
the interstate & run it out. Try to keep an average speed of 70-80 mph.
Run at least 100 mi. That may take 1 hour 15-20 min but you should see some
improvement if the injector is only clogged. If that is the problem all of
the injectors should need cleaning.
I cleaned injectors a couple times by using my mighty vac pump hooke dup to
the rail end of the injector, create a vacuum.
Hook the injector up to a light 5v AC adaptor, and put the engine end of the
injector in a bowl with carb cleaner.
The 5V ac makes the injector pulsate and the carb cleaner gets sucked
through it. You will be amazed how much crap comes out of the injector. U
can also check the spraypatern like that.
