Check for fuel in coolant its hard to see if you have yellow coolant but if so it could be injector sleeve.

Yes. If you can find the tool it is fairly simple. I did mine in a day. Some were easier than others. But all in all I saved myself a lot of money and learned a new task for all my buddies trucks.

If you want to my the tool it is made Whitaker. I think "Whitaker sleeve puller" Google it. I just used a tap and slide hqmmer though. And to install them an old injector minus solenoid. Good luck.
