Fuel injector issue

Ok well I'm pretty sure I have a fuel injector problem that is causing my engine to run rough. I have checked everything and all checks out ok great my Ficm voltage fuel pressure everything. It happens when it's cold but also comes and goes when it's warmed up but not as often as cold. My question is there an easy way to know what injector is acting up? Doesn't throw codes or anything when it does act up just runs rough and smokes like a chimney? Any help would be appreciated

The only way is to use a diagnostic tool or disconnect each injector to find the culprit. The latter method is a PITA due to all the wires and accesories in the way. Don't loose the harness clips or it will cost you dearly.

There is nothing wrong with a good shop giving you the diagnosis. But if you don't want to take it in, find, borrow or buy an autoenginuity with ford bundle. 3 tests an it is paid for.

I just dropped my truck off this afternoon at the dealership for a similar problem. I didn't find any codes when I check it with my autoenginuity with the ford bundle. The service manager said it might be a bad injector cup but he wasn't sure.

Damn this is a pain I'll probably have to take it in and have them try to find the problem.. I hope it's not something I can't do

It runs ****ty and blows smoke almost like it's miss firing on a cylinder for for a while then it goes away and runs fine... It happens more on cold start ups more than anything... But it's very sporadic when it happens. Sometimes last for a while others it does it for a minute and stops. Tried injector cleaner changed oil changed the icp sensor still does it
