Exclamation Injector replacement problems....

Well, I am posting this trying to figure some stuff out for myself and to help a friend out, so bear with me if I don't quite have all the information I need or the order of events quite right...Should be good though, here is the deal...(This is on a 03 6.0)

Took the truck into a shop to diagnose intermittent rough running and was told that #6 cylinder failed the contribution test and it had a bad injector. He went out and got the injector and had them install the injector. Afterwards they fire it up and it runs ok for a few minutes then starts ticking and makes a "terrible noise" (His words not mine) and starts blowing a bunch of white smoke so they shut it off. When they try and restart it, it won't turn over. They leave it for the night and this morning they said they tried to crank it and it started up and ran good, took it for a drive and it dies on the road and has to be towed back. They hook up a scanner and are now saying that it popped a CPS code and that that needs replaced. Can't get much more information from them because for some reason they have become very tight lipped with information or answers to questions. More to come tomorrow I guess.

I was wondering what you guys all think about this. We probably would have done it ourselves, but I am out of town so wasn't available for the assist. I have my opinions, but wanted to hear what you all thought before I added mine. (It might keep me from looking stupid...) BTW, this place is NOT a diesel shop, but he knows the service writer and I guess they figured they were doing him a favor.

I call BS on that. If it set a P2614 and P2617 codes, it just means the engine stalled, causing the input signals to drop. It's the cause of the stalling that needs to be addressed.

I will talk to him today and see if he knows the code numbers. If he didn't find out before, I highly doubt they will tell him now. I'll see what I can come up with.

when they replaced the injector what did they torque the injector hold down to. if not properly torque will dump fuel into the cylinder like no tommorow.
