Are you sure you need 8 injectors. Have you done any troubleshooting or diagnostic tests.

it spits and sputters when cold and at low throttle. read numerous threads on here they all say injectors. so i checked prices online and was shocked. didnt realize they were that much.

I strongly suggest you do some diagnostics. It could be a fuel supply issue, or something else.

Highly unlikely all injectors are bad.

Don't get me wrong you could have one or two bad injectors. You could have a bad under valve cover harness.

1k is not bad for injectors.

You have to think about driving a diesel that it is more expensive than a gas engine to work on.

Not trying to start trouble but if you are not willing to spend more for a diesel repairs then sell it and get a truck with a gas engine.

When I first bought my truck yeah I was supprised at how much the parts are but that is part of owning and driving a diesel.

The way I look at it having a diesel pays for itself in the mileage savings vs a truck with big V8 gas engine in it.
