Ran fine, filled up diesel, now p0275
Not sure if its a weird coincidence or not but I had about an 1/8 of a tank of fuel left and decided to fill up at Superstore (I usually use Petrocan or Shell). My parents fill their TDI up at Superstore regularly and figured it wouldnt hurt if I put in 10gal. Anyways, I drove maybe 300 feet and came to a yield where I found my truck hunting for an idle around 750-800rpm. No CEL, so I drove a few KM's to get home and it was running like crap, no power, and then stalled when I put it in reverse. Put my SCT on and it gave me a P0275 Cyl #5 contribution fault code. I check the injector wiring, cleaned the plug with electronic cleaner, but didn't help.
Prior to this I was having a cold start issue but put in RevX and that solved it a few months ago.
So my question is, is it possible for an injector to just fail while driving, or should I consult the station just incase others have an issue? Or could it be a sealing washer?
