Changed filter

!st thing I did was change the filter. I used a generic code reader. What code reader do you recomend?
I find it odd that it was running fine before i stopped all the sudden its running like crap.
Also the passengers side exaust it hot and the drivers side is cool enough to touch after an extended drive??

Well s#@$ happens. Snap-on makes a code reader(mt2500). I don't have one yet, heard they are good. Not just for reading codes. For self diagnostics. Also you could have a bad wiring harness under the valve cover to the injecters. Shoot the manifold with a heat gun and see what cylinders are cold. From what I've read, #3 and #7 usually have problems.

The one mentioned in the above post works. Or if you know someone that has the Auto Enginuity software that works great too. Another option is if you know someone that has an SCT or Edge programmer they pick up almost all our codes too

With the temp differences on your manifolds, I'll bet on the UVCH coming loose. You need to pull your valve cover on the cold side and check the harness connection...

update

I removed the offending valve cover. The harness looks great. No motoroil comming from the injectors. I read some where motoroil should be circulating from the injectors.?
