Are my injectors missing?

Hey guys, needless to say, I've had lots of problems with my injectors. Here's a vid, and tell me what you guys think. I know it's pretty warm, so the njector problems won't show up as much, but I plan on getting another video in the morning when she's cold. And included in that video will be the elusive hard start I've yet to find a solution for.

Here ya go, tell me what you guys think.

No, it sounds like they are still there.... if they were 'missing' the motor couldn;t get fuel and would not run




















Your motor does NOT sound like it is missing. At least not in the sense mine is (complete failure) However, my truck had some hard starting issues and cold running issues. Took it into a dealer and they ran a computer test and I had a bad FICM and three injectors getting weak. They replaced that and I had no more issues until this last weekend happened.

FWIW, you can go to a dealer and pay about $100 for a scan or you can get AE for around $250 if you search... I am going the AE route sooner or later but for now I am going to the dealer in the am....

Just a note on the AE. If you do buy one make sure you get the pro line connector. Otherwise it won't work on the 6.0.

Haha I know I noticed the title right after I posted it.

FICM was replaced a week ago, long with another injector.

And BTW, the truck is still under warranty.

Thanks for the comments guys, I'm having trouble learning what a miss is, so I just wanted to make sure mine wasn't. I'm gonna post up a video tomorrow of a cold start, as that seems to be when most injector problems are evident.

And maybe you guys can help me resolve this hard start/long crank issue as well.
