Leaking injector, o-ring

So after the BPD FICM replace this weekend I am now getting a hot crank no start issue. It is cold cranking and starting after an extended time. I am over the top busy at work so I took it to a shop! They have ran an air test and are hearing leaking air inside the motor. They are speculating it is a down pipe or injector leaking. The pipes are cheap enough to replace the whole thing, but they are telling me that if it is an injector o-ring that they recommend replacing the whole injector and of course if you are going to do one you might as well do the all. I agree with the if you are going to do one theory but can you not simply replace the o-rings?

They are stock injectors
I have done the blue spring update
I have the FICM at 58 volt
No other codes showing
Run the edge platinum but never above drive
Bypass oil and coolant filter
4" turbo back MBRP
Considering bullet proofing but was not planning on them doing nor buying injectors


Any suggestions would be great

You need to know more of the overall condition of the engine before replacing a bank or all of the injectors. If the test shows only one, and it is just an o-ring, replace the o-ring (and the other o-ring and copper seal) and enjoy your truck. You also should know what the contributing factors are for the injector failure. If it is a high miler and you have 2 out on one side, you may be better off with 4 new ones. Some of the cost factor directly relates to the shop cost to replace them. If you are expecting to replace more soon, then it is cheape via lobour to replace 4.

I was " out of town" for over a year a while back. I know that this is bad on a diesel but what do you do. That being said, the truck only has 110,000. So if it is an injector issue pray that they are all on one side? I am going to stop by this afternoon and see what they are thinking. I agree about the shop hour cost. I am just not wanting to spend all that money for 8 injectors right now. May have to, but I am going to be mad about it and cuss and stuff.

Any suggestions on injector brands if I do have to buy some? Ford's rebuilds seem pretty common. I looked at some Bullet Proof, just hate that they want $75 more than Ford and a $200/ injector core. It puts my initial out of pocket cost almost double. I saw a thing on here for the Core website for $90 buy back. I just wonder if Ford had their own core deposit as well.

Ford injectors retail for $285.71 and have a $180 core charge.

Thanks seems like Tousley is a little cheaper on the part but more on the core. Do you know if it comes from Ford with the o-rings installed. Looking at the BPD site theirs are Ford injectors? But! they sell the o-ring kit seperate.

I wish I was doing this, instead of it sitting in a shop! I was hoping to have it back quicker by letting them do it.

new injectors come with new O-rings and copper crush washer... Just lube the O-rings and install the injector.

Well now it seems the "nipples" on the manifold are leaking! Is this a rebuild part or do you have to buy the whole new manifold?

Also the are trying a new one and it is still leaking on that side. We discussed the pipe and dummy plugs. Hopefully they come with something soon.
