Bad injector?

Just wondering if there is anyway to check this with a Scangauge II? I have been having the typical slow/no start with white smoke problem which I thought would be cured after changing out my bad FICM but only a day later I still have the same issue. I am thinking that I have an injector leaking down but I need a way to test for it before I rip things apart. It is so hit or miss when it does it that leaving it with my diesel mechanic (former Ford tech) hasn't led to a problem when he has it. Any other suggestions as to what it could be? We are getting really close to winter here and I can't have this going on when we start hitting -30 or lower. I should also mention that there has been no coolant loss and the EGR is deleted.
