P0226??

Returned from a 500 mile round trip to the parker strip (colorado river) and truck ran great. Was pulling my 14k fith wheel and averaging about 12 mpg at 62 mph. Coolant temps were good oil temps were good. At times I had a delta of about 25, but this was while pulling a grade. Averaged a delta of 12 to 17. Anyways, like I said, truck seemed to do well. Yesterday I checked dtc's and had p0226 cylinder 2 contribution/balance. No CEL and no noticeable issues. Kinda worries me. Any idea what could cause this? What does it really mean. And where should I start? 2004 f350 fx4 4 door torqshift tranny. Thanks

Do you have access to a scanner so you can do an injector buzz test? You could have an injector going out.

Yes, something like an Auto Enginuity and similar. I don't think you can do a buzz test with the CTS, but I'll check on my buddy's CTS.

I sent a PM to a tech here with a link to your thread, hopefully he'll be along soon.

Yeah that scan tool would work. Maybe buy him some beer and ask him to put differences aside for the sake of your truck. Lol
