went to the shop for first time

as title mentioned. i finally got tired of the truck "chugging" white smoke when i start it up in the mornings. its kinda embarassing being in an rv park with dodges and chevys. anyway come to find out 3 injectors were going bad as well as the egr cooler. it had a good run it has been flawless right up to about the 50K mark. the main thing im worried about is replacing 3 injectors will that cause more injector problems down the road?? justr curious what other peoples views were on this and if there is anything else i should have them look at while they are in there??

why would replacing 3 injectors cause damage to your other 5 that arent bad?

If your going to the shop over EGR problems just get the egr Delete instead of throwing your money away, Your injectors shouldnt be causing any smoke probaly just that old EGR Cooler
