I thnk they will get you on your truck age if you had the 10yr 100k warrenty. Kinda the dealers call.

are these codes pretty certain that my injectors need to be replaced? If so, do I replace all of them? Or just replace the 2, sell it and buy a new 350 or 450? What years should I be looking at?

It is no longer under a factory warranty, you'd under be covered if you bought an aftermarket, but its gonna be a headache.

First thing you need to figure out is why those two have failed. Seldom do injectors fail by themselves with that mileage. You need to check the health of the FICM, and check you fuel and oil pressures to ensure you aren't killing others in the process.

You have one failing on each bank, my recommendation. Solve the reason they are failing, and replace all 8 at one shot. Eliminate the additional labor of tearing back into it as each single injector fails from this point on. You need to solve the why question first, or you will continue to eat injectors and drive yourself nuts.

Can only a repair shop check my FICM? I am going to my local diesel shop in the am. Truck has been running great, no miss or white smoke.

You can check the voltage for yourself, under the hood. (search for the thread here on the ORG)

Its much easier with a Monitor like the Insight that will display it for you.

THere is also a very good Youtube video on how to do it. I did it and it took me literally 20 minutes from start to finish, and I wasn't in a hurry

ok.... shop hooked up computer to truck, the FICM was around 46v idling and down to 38v when driving. Replacing FICM and will be done by noon!

I guess it is time for a monitor like the Insight, do i get just the monitoring or go for a programmer type? I do tow a 38' Raptor toy hauler and truck runs fine with out a programmer but.....
