Could be cracked injector tip I think, either way, with those symtoms, I wouldnt run it like that. You gotta pull it.

I barely ran it after it started doing it but it would do it at idle for about 10 seconds every now and then and now it does it all the time. Goin to get it today with a trailer and another 6.0 lol but with those symptoms prolly bad Injector or what?

Some test can be run with AE, other than that, the dealer. If you've got white smoke and #3 contribution, you'll have to pull it to investigate regardless. Overfueling can cause cylinder damage.

It would run like crap for like 10 seconds at a time and then go away before. Now it always runs like crap. Any ideas? I pulled the injector and am gonna try a new one and see
