Bad Injector

If your truck runs and sounds like this it might be time for you to replace an injector. You at least want to find out what is causing it. This is my truck and I know I have a bad stick on cylinder 4. Just thought I would share a video instead of trying to describe it.

Mine isnt that bad.

I just get a contribution code, and miss under hard accel and heavy load (going up a hill). it will be fine until you get on it and then just start bucking and missing. then clear up.

Tried new oil. tried rev-x. New injector is in the mail.

How do you figure out which injector is messing up? Just get it scanned or something? I'm having the same issue with my truck and it sucks.

We used an AE on it and it failed the contribution test. I would prefer to do all eight but I can't afford it with the holidays coming up.

Ford here was telling me $302 plus a $180 core charge. I have it coming for $269 with the core charge.

Does it just run like that warm? Mine is similar for a little bit on a cold start then it clears up.

Nope that is all the better she gets. It started out just doing it on start up and now it is like that. It started going bad over a year ago.
