    Default 2008 1.8vvt ignition/injector fault

    hello there, really need some help. was driving along normally when my 2008 1.8vvt brought the engine management light on, i got to my destination (just along the road) but then the car wouldn't restart, AA guy came out and got it started but seid it had fault on cylinder 3, he'd pulled the lead off the injector and plugged a tester lamp into lead and the bulb on tester was constantly on, he also did it on cylinder 2 and it pulsed as it should. He said injector is permanently on. My issue is that the car is now at the dealer and they've replaced the ignition coil pack, cos that was the fault code showing, but now they say it's the injector. does this make sense or am i being shafted by dealer? price already upto £460. The fault seems to me to be on trigger for injector, a wiring fault or dare i say it ECU, but i'm not a motor mechanic. advise would be greatfully received

    if you are into 460 quid for a dealer to supply and fit a coil pack you are being WELL shafted already.
