Engine light on and shaking
My wifes truck 2000 F350 Dually 7.3 has a problem. The engine light will come on and the engine will shake really bad and then after a few seconds it will go out and act fine the rest of the day.
I took it to a local mechanic and he said he put it on a scanner and it said #2 and #7 injectors were sticking. He ran some cleaner through it on a machine and that didn't work. He said to drive it for a few days and see if it clears up.
It seems like it only does it when the engine is cold....after a you drive it a while and the engine warms up the engine light doesnt come on again and it runs fine.
I had Advance Auto check it on their scanner and they said the engine light has to be on for them to scan for codes.
Any help would be appreciated!!
