suspecting a bad injector
96 7.3 has been running rough for a few weeks. Oil is new, coolant is new, fuel filter is new but seems to run rough on idle and over 60. Feels like its missing an injector, also feels like the engine is vibrating slightly. I thought it could be the CPS but I'm thinking the whole engine would be rough. There is still power and boost, just a little down. I ohmed the injectors though the harness and got 3.8 on 7 of them and 5.3 on one. I also put a temp laser probe on the headers and found that the 5.3ohm one was 50 degrees less than the others.
My question is am I on the right tracks?
Will the ohms be high if the injector is blocked or is the solenoid faulty?
I want to do an injector rebuild myself with just an o-seal kit, is this wise? what tools would I need? (any links?)
Any other help and advice is and always appreciated
