The RX-7 saga continues. The shop called with more bad news. Not only are the injectors bad, but they also need to replace both sets of vacuum hoses (dozens of little hoses) and a duty cycle valve. He said these hoses should have been replaced as part of the engine rebuild a few thousand miles ago, but that the current hoses are the originals. So either this mechanic is jerking me around, or the shop that did the rebuild didn’t know enough or care enough to replace the hoses while the engine was apart. The bill is at $2500 now.
