Advice and opinions wanted for rough idle, possible bad injector

I am looking at a 95 f250 with the 7.3L powerstroke. It seems like 1 injector isn't firing. Anything i should look for? It needs a shot of starting fluid to start then it idle's very rough with a bad knock and no power.

All help is appreciated

Thanks for the advice on the ether.


I'm still looking at advice on this knocking problem. I put a video on youtube
Not the best quality but it should give an idea on what it sounds like? Any ideas? I just want to make sure it is an injector because they're about 500 bucks a pop in northern alberta

Sounds like mine did, just before I put a set of Tranny Savers in from Beans. I was absolutly a nightmare to start cold, would knock and beat around till it finally warmed up enough to run.

I didn't really get it to hot but it sounds like it might not have a injector problem just an wiring issue, (i'm thinking this because of other posts in the forum. Thanks to all that are here) I have another question: Will the auto enginuity software work on a 95 f250? I've been seeing it a lot here and i'm thinking i should by the kit Thanks again
