P0278 Cylinder 6 Contribution/Balance Fault

Does anyone have any addtional information for this fault code or know of where I can find some possible causes for this fault?

Found this code on my Edge unit today, wondering if there is a plug or injector issue w/#6?

Thanks for the help guys.

I supposedly have this same prob w/ cylender #4. MY cousin is a diesel helper and he said its probly a miss fire. I havent felt anything out of the norm but he said chances are you wont, you might just lose some power.

Haven't done anything with this yet, I just got a P0336 and a P0341.
For the crank and Cam sensors, truck started sputtering at about 2500rpm.
Going to call the dealership tomorrow and take it in.
