Sounds like your guy is a parts changer not a Mechanic , A Mechanic would check with a scan tool and find out what is wrong before randomly changing parts that are not bad with your hard earned money

Find some one with a xcal2-3 and do some datalogging , I will be glad to look them over and I dont charge for this
