Runs rough, No Power when warm
Last night on my way to work my truck started to miss when I started it. (it had only been parked for approx. 1/2 hour) The warmer it got the worse the miss got. Then this morning after work it started ok, but when it warmed up it started to miss again and lost power, to the point of going into limp mode. Managed to get it to the dealer, they hooked it up and the laptop they were using said that it had dropped the #1,3 and 5 injectors. We let it cool off and then drove it to the gas station next door to add some fuel (just in case it was a bad fuel issue), then test drove it, problem returned, and we had to keep a foot on the pedal to keep it from stalling.I find it hard to believe that it lost 3 of 4 injectors from the same bank at once.
I just recently cleaned the egr valve, changed the fuel filters, and did an oil change. It drove normal after that, until last night.
Does it take alot to trip the check engine light on these trucks? Because mine never lit up, and I would think that it should have, considering that it was barely driveable. It's a 2004.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
