Hard to start and codes showing injectors
Hi everyone,, from start to end,,, 2007 F350 bought brand new. First winter the filter gelled up and had two injectors go bad, then 6 months later 1 more etc until seven of the eight were replaced. It ran perfect for about a year then about 2 weeks ago I got a code saying # 7 injector ,,, but NO missing , we cleared the code and waited, then it started hard for the first time since I bought it, and after that strange thing, # 4 injector showed bad. I cleared that and then # 7 came up again. NO missing etc, The next morning it started real bad and after it got going , it ran perfect the whole rest of the day. OF COURSE I am getting ready to DRIVE to Mexico city from MN and the next morning it took , like an hour to get it running, black smoke/ white smoke fire, quit , crank crank, and finally it started, and again ran PERFECT half way to Texas,, next morning it took AAA like two hours to start it,,, codes showed ALL injectors bad. then I knew it was going to the shop. In Buda Texas the Ford truck shop said the FICM was bad. 1200.00 later we were on the road and we have put on 5000 miles in the last week and a half,,, runs perfect , starts good etc,,,,, WHY does this go out and why does it cost so much.... ?? Does replacment FICM's go bad?? I love my truck, but I'm a little jumpy now.
