Dont always trust the dealer!
I took my truck in for a diagnosis a week ago and the dealer told me it needed 2 injectors and a ficm. I thought about a for a little bit and ended up taking the truck home and ohm testing all the injectors and they checked out fine. I ended up ordering a new injector harness and already had purchased an ficm so I put them both in today and the truck runs flawlessly.
I'm not saying the dealer was trying to rip me off I just don't think they test the injectors how they should. I'm assuming they check ohms at the ficm plug rather than at the injector which would explain why they came up with 2 bad injectors (some sort of short/open in the harness)
Just a heads up for some of you out there that think the dealer knows all.
My truck was at the same dealer a week before for running rough and rind only dying out. They told me it was a lose plug on the ficm and told me they replaced the plug. 3 days later the truck started running worse and eventually couldn't even hardly move under its own power. That's when I took it back for the diagnosis and they told me it needed the injectors and ficm
Makes me wonder how many injectors have been replace when they were perfectly fine
