I'm going to see how the dealership handles this before I name them (disclosure: I own stock in the dealership conglomerate). No new injectors were installed in the CBU cleanup.

Got the car back yesterday. Runs OK, but it still has a rough idle, exactly as it did when I brought it in. When I cleared the injector 6 code before, it took 1000 miles for it to come back. I...
