P0269 code

My '04 threw a code...P0269(cylinder #3 contribution/balance). Truck idles rough and surges. It has Full Force(Casserly) 190/75's that have about 32K miles on them. Fuel pressure stays constant...60psi and never changes. So I don't think it's a rubber o-ring or copper washer issue. Can damaged injector internals cause a contribution/balance code? I have a feeling I'm gonna need an injector.

I just had my number 8 start throwing a contribution/balance code as well. I sent it out to Warren Diesel and just got it back in the mail. Just gotta wait to have some free time to install it this weekend.

Call up Warren Diesel and see what they can do for ya.... unfortunately the number 3 is on the passenger side which can be kinda difficult to work on with the minimal space.

Did you find out what was actually wrong with it and what it needed? I had the #3 injector tested and solenoids/coils checked out ok. Compression is good, fuel spring and spool valve seem to be fine. So its getting sent out to MPD tomorrow and Craig is gonna go through it and check it over.

Yes if it's scored and/or hanging up causing a miss it can/will throw a contribution/balance code.

If you had a crush washer leaking it would cause the whole bank to start missing since the combustion gasses going into the rail starve them for fuel.

Copper washer and rubber o-rings were good. I know what a bad copper washer and cut o-rings will do....I've had it happen before. Truck acted as if it was one of those...but it wasn't. So I'm guessing something inside the injector is damaged. It was sent out to MPD to be checked out and fixed.

Craig at MPD took apart my #3 injector and said the plunger was worn pretty badly. Gonna build a new one.

On my phone so I can't see the pic clearly, was that one on the same bank you had the copper fail on before? Just curious if the starvation on fuel had anything to do with the wear on it.

These aren't the same injectors that I had a bad copper washer and bad o-rings on. These are Casserly 190/75's that started out with 50k miles as stock....and roughly 32k miles as 190/75's...so 80-85k miles total. These injectors were originally in my cousins truck who ran 15w-40 oil and never ran any fuel additive. Since I had them built into 190/75's....I always ran a 5w-40 with either rev-x or Archoil AR9100 and optilube XPD fuel additive. This is the first issue I've had since I installed these back in December of '08. Craig told me that it looked like the body was warped do to the spill port being welded the wrong way and the body got too hot from the weld job and the plunger will not travel all the way through the body and gets caught half way...which is why it was wearing the way it was.

Craig just messaged me.... He's got the new one all boxed up. The new one flows 200cc. Should have it Thursday and installed Friday.
