just a bit of advice. if you were looking for some help fromthe techs on here, they wont answer anything with " stealership " in it. they make their living at the dealership so instead of putting the dealership down, your also putting them down. next time put "dealership" and you may get more responses. thanks!

Sorry for not starting a new thread for this question, but I tried posting in the 6.0L repair forum but said I didn't have privileges to do so..and this question also has to do with kspence101's issue.
I just noticed today my 6.0 running rough between 1000 and 1800 rpms, feels like its skipping a cylinder (or 2 i don't really know) every other rotation or so. Judging from what I've read on the forum chances are it's a bad injector (or 2) or O-ring, please correct me if you think I'm wrong or if there are any other possibilities. I plan on taking it to a reputable diesel mech I know, not the dealership, when I get a chance next week, but it's eating me up now just not knowing.
forgive my ignorance, when kspence101 says wiring harness is he referring to the connection to the injector, or am I way off. Or is the 6.0 not the same in that aspect. Thanks in advance for any help.

just to let you know if the wiring harness was unplugged or loose there is a fix for that, it's a locking wedge that goes into the connecter ask the guys at the dealership to run tsbs they should know what it is right away...and 3 and 7 are on the same side...pass side....explaining why the loose connecter would cause your concern...also i have seen 7.3's and 6.0's loose more than 2 injectors at one time...i've seen many 7.3's running on one bank....
