Angry injectors dropping out then corrects

03 F250 6.0 Injectors dropping out 2 on each bank according to FORD. When I take of after truck has been sitting for several hours, within 6 miles engine starts droping injectors. Ford can see them dropping out but no codes appear. They replaced EGR and updated computer. If I keep driving it eventualy comes back within 10 minutes, it does great until the next time it sits for a while.I believe its the same injectors but not sure. The only thing it shows is injectors dropping out but no cause or code.


When it happends it sounds like a tractor, no power, no smoke, it will not easly take off you have to floor it and it takes a while to gain rpm's and speed. If I turn it off while having this problem it will not restart, I had it towed to dealer one night the next morning I went there and it cranked up and ran fine until that evening. I left work and it started acting up again. It does not matter if I let it warm up for 5min or 30min it happens shortly after tacking off.

is it usually the same injectors?, and has the dealer been able to pull any codes (sometimes you can have a code with no check engine light). also, is it just running rough, or do you have a lack of power, and do you have any smoke??? is it ever hard to start, and if so, hot or cold?? and does it ever miss right after start up, or is it always after it is driven a short time??

sounds to me like you are perfectly correct in your assesment of it being an injector problem, and more importantly, the sick-0 has had some injector issues, especially in cold weather climates. what i would reccomend is taking it to the dealer, say mid afternoon, and leaving it over night. tell them you know it is an injector problem, lie to them however you need to to get them to beleave you....family member...aftermarket scan tool.....etc.....and then say you are not sure what injector(s) are causing the problems....but you know it is the injectors. tell them you know a cold cylender balance test will tell them which injector(s) is not funtioning properly cold......this is about all i can do at a distance for you...hope it helps.....
