P0266 Cylinder 2 Balance/Contribution Code

Howdy, I have put 2000 miles on my 2008 I just purchased. I cleared this code once after 1000 miles, now the code is came back again. No engine light or anything, just a random diagnostics test on my mini maxx. I talked to a dealer and they said this code can be thrown when the trucks are cold. I want to get some more input before I throw an injector at it. Thank you in advance.

I've seen this as well. These don't just throw random codes cold. At least not where I'm at (Seattle area). I would err on the side of caution and replace the injector. Have seen quite a few 6.4 melt pistons on #2 due to improper fueling. Before you replace the injector have a relative compression test performed.
