Injector probs after studding
I just studded my 04 6.0 and put it back together. After a while of cranking I got it kicking and then it started but it idles and runs rough. If you hit the accel a bit it'll climb and one of the injectors sounds like a dry clack. Best described as putting paper in a fan and having it hit the blades. I also have a p0275 code. I think that injector has gone bad. It also smokes on idle. It's more a grey, than a dark black, but I still think it's just soot.
I have to take the intake mani back off because the weld for the EGR coolant bypass wasn't satisfactory and is leaking, so I'm planning on sticking a new injector in there once I get it off. In the meantime any ideas?
Also starting it, if you let it sit it takes longer to start, it'll turn over with no kicking then once it kicks it starts right up. But if you start it right after turning it off it starts right up. Like it's letting fuel bleed back or something.
