This is PISSING ME OFF!!!!

So, my truck has been at Ford for 10 weeks! I brought it in because there was a coolant leak. Turned out to be diesel in the coolant which was apparently caused from a cracked injector cup (ford couldnt actually tell me that it was a cracked cup, but it def was not a cracked head). Needless to say, after taking their sweet *** time, I finally got my truck back. They had to replace basic the entire cooling system, plus oil cooler etc. I get my truck back, and i notice that it is missing at idle, and when you start it up. Check my Insight and find a P0272 code #4 cylinder cont/bal fault. Bring it back into Ford and they say the #4 injector is bad and they had to replace it (didnt charge me because i raised hell) Get the truck back again, and after driving it for 3 days, P0272 again. The truck was still missing at idle and start up when I picked it up at the dealership. WTF???? Need some insight here! Im guessing its either a bent push rod, bad injector, or air in the system. What you guys think?

Could be bent pushrod, rocker arm failure, bad valve, bad piston.......for starters.

Get in there with the truck idling, and wiggle your injector harness in various places and see if there is a change in the idle...if there is then unplug the injector plug; remove metal clip, pull plug off injector connector...replace clip BEFORE plugging harness connector back into injector plug. See if this fixes the issue. I had the same issue after my egr delete. After a bit of proding I found that an injector plug was not making good connection.

On a side note, does this miss happen all the time or just at startup ?

Cool....thx for all the responses. Redneck, it happens at every startup, doesnt matter if its cold or warm....but you can tell its just not idling right if the truck is in park.
