Unconvention diagnostic methods, Chugging 7.3.
I have a 2001 F250 with a 7.3. It has over 200K miles on it, I just bought it this spring so I know nothing about the injectors.
When If first starts after sitting overnight it will rev up and down a couple times and then quit, after the second attempt it will start and keep running. But it has puffs of white smoke coming out of the exhaust until it's warm.
Now here is the reason for my Thread Title....... If I put my hand in front of the exhaust after it starts (white smoke still present) I can feel an inconsistent pulse, like I have a cylinder that isn't doing its job, do you know what I mean or do I sound like a moron. I checked the glow plugs and they all work. I'm thinking I have an injector going bad, I want to be sure, don't want to spend a day and 2000 dollars on a whim.
Also, where can I buy and what brands can I trust?
Should I find out what cylinder is bad and just do one, or do you do all at the same time?
