I have never had a mechanic.
I started my life out as a mechanic, before the hands kept me from continuing with it full time.
I have fooled with diesels in the past, but not the powerstroke. My first powerstroke went 300000 miles without issue(replaced water pump at 225000). Still do mechanical work but mostly on gas, or ball joints wheel bearings etc.
I have done everyhting I am aware of to do, that is why I am here on the forum. It has been a great help. I brought it back to the fella that tested the injectors, and he advised there wasn't an issue, even though it was sitting there running and smoking. I stopped at the Ford dealer on my way home and spoke to a friend in the parts area, he recomended another fella, so I just dropped it off to him. Just by looking at it, he has advised it is in the injector harness, injector or something in the fuel system. He has also told me that there is no ryme or reason for the issues to come up. he has seen them with 20k miles, and he has seen them go 400k without issue. He will be calling later, I will update once I know.
Thanks to everone for their help.
