Red face My first diesel pleaseeee help....

Hello all, this is my first post, and im sure it wont be my last. I think this a great site. Well here is my problem i just got a 02 f350. I traded a 00 chevy s10 and my golf cart for it. anyways when i got it the guy told me it just needs a squirt of starting fluid to start it somtimes. Yea well every morning i almost have to dum a can of starting fluid to get it running after it heats up it runs fine all day. I know this is bad and im not doing it anymore. I took it to the diesel shop and they told me it needs all new injectors. they want $2,900 to install them. (reconditioned injectors) what i need to know is where can i get good injectors that arent so expensive. I seen rebuilt ones on ebay for $100 a piece. Also how hard are they to install. Im a certified honda tech but diesel is a lil bit more compex to me. also when i have the truck in park and i rev it a lil bit i get to about 1,800 rpms and it pours out white smoke. so please any help will be greatful thank you for your time.....in advance....

Use WD40 if you must! That starting fluid is a bit harsh!

allot of that price is going to be labor. but i would think you could get some stock sticks for under a grand. you can get good stage1's for less than 2 grand.

If you are a mechanic, check out this: Injectors - Nozzles I am 2/3 through my 1996 cleaning and rebuilding the injectors. Not hard, just got to get everything clean. I just dropped a check valve (BB) and have to order the spare parts kit in the morning. I cant believe all the mud inside the injectors, and it still ran. (Just). Next I will be getting a Tony Wildman chip.
