How to replace Injector

I need to replace #6 injector, and I cant seem to find a write up for it any where thought I found one at one time. Could some one explain the basics of it at least for me and any odd tools needed. I know take degas bottle out, air intake, ficm and valve cover but then I'm lost. Also #6 is the 3rd cylinder from the front on driver side right? Thanks for the help

Ah my phone didn't show your sig at first, never mind! Gotta pull the oil rail up, you'll see it's obviously in the way, I've never done one without pulling the heads but have been told you don't have to pull the rockers to pull the injector but there's one torx bolt down lower on the injector that hold the clamp that secures the injector down . Loosen that bolt and after releasing the wire harness plug from the head it will slide right out, there's a copper crush washer around the tip of the injector, they usually stay with the injector but not always! Make sure to find it or you will have problems if it's left in the hole!

I changed the number 5 injector on my 6.0 in the front yard at my house a couple of years ago. I took my time and paid attention and it went like clockwork. You have to remove (if I remember correctly) The coolant degas bottle, the alternator, the turbo, the intake manifold, and the FICM to get to the valve cover. That may be a slightly more involved method but while I was that far into the motor, I did the EGR delete with new up-pipe and I rebuilt the Oil Cooler as preventative maintenance.

Ya I havent heard that the turbo and intake manifold had to be removed. How does the oil rail come out? Anybody have pics of the inside of the valve cover? What about the stand pipe and dummy plug have to come out before the oil rail?

I just did the same injector on my truck last week. To take the oil rail out take all the bolts off and pull it straight up i should not take a lot of force and watch out the oil in there is gonna come out so keep your hands out of the way. Also make sure all the washers (especially the copper one by the tip of the injector) come out with the injector. To get the electrical plug out of the head use a socket thats close to the size of the connector and knock it out. Also torque the bolt that holds the injector to
25 foot pounds.

Just watched the videos, does he use carb cleaner or what to clean out the cups with the wire brush? Looks like my project for the weekend.

Take the standpipe out before you pull the oil rail off. It is either a 10mm or 12mm hex depending on whether it is the old or new style standpipe.

You can just clean the bolt hole and injector cup of oil with a Q-tip. The socket to remove the electrical socket from the rocker cover is a 19mm. Single torx for the injector hold down. The drivers side is much easier than the passenger side, you are lucky.
