Had similar problem with GMC van, 4.3 engine. Bit the bullet & spent $60 to have dealer hook it up to scope. Had weak injector(TBI), Tech even gave me part NAPA number, told me to go home & change it out so to save the labor charge.$35 for part, 20 minutes to install. Took care of the problem. Total time from drive in dealer door til done was 1 1/2 hours, total cost $100. Could have thrown $500 worth of parts at it by guessing & maybe accidentally found the problem.
Had Chev 2.8 that wouldn't pass smog test. Hooked up scope, bad connection at oxygen sensor, 5 minutes to test, 10 minutes to clean connector, no parts needed.
IMNSHO cheaper in long run to spend a few bucks on diagnosis than throw a bunch of parts at it.
