does a bad injector do damage to engine?

Like the title says, does a failed injector do damage to that cylinder? If one of the cylinders has ailed a contribution test, and its been ran that way for a while, would that do damage to the piston, rings or cylinder wall?
Would it not do anything?
thx

you should not see any real damage from a lack of fuel injection on a cylinder, that I know of.

if you have a bad injector, replace it (or better yet, them all). If one is not working right the truck will not run right and if its injecting a stream of fuel rather then a mist you are asking for issues.

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good

a damaged injecor can cause uneven spray resulting in burned areas on the cylinder head. a friend of mine had a to have motor replaced for it. it would be wise to getting it fixed!

I did replace the injector, but did not do any compression tests. I think theres a week one in there but not bad enough to fail the buzz or cct test. I think i am going to get the idm redone at beans for 100 bucks to put out the 140 volts
