Can E-Bay Counterfeit Parts Destroy Your Engine?

In this video we are reminded of the old saying, “if it’s to good to be true, it probably isn’t.” This is a perfect example as a mechanic was unloading the parts cannon to attempt to fix this Chevrolet he ended up on E-Bay and bought an entire set of “AC Delco” Fuel injectors for $85! 😂 Let’s get real, they are $97 EACH at the deal! Any how, it may have cost him the engine as we see in this video the #2 injector is wide open possible hydro locking the engine and bending the rod. We’ll never know because the mechanic is taking it back to his shop to toss a few more parts in the chamber. For what it is worth, beware if buying what seems like a great deal from the internet. -Enjoy!
