Well, I had posted a long write-up in the motor problems if anyone cares to read fully what my symptoms were. Spark notes version; it ran fine all day, later that evening it developed a miss that rapidly turned worse and it was smoking more than normal and kept throwing a cylinder 5 code.
Well, today I tore into it. Injector #5 is pulled out and the pictures show what was going on. Cracked tip.
I understand this usually happens due to low fuel pressure? I don't have a fuel pressure gauge so I don't know what was going on there. I have the fuel spring mod, but apparently it was too late?
Someone with more experience than me can hopefully help me out here.... Until now, the pickup ran great except for some troublesome cold starts I never could pinpoint. Should I grab one stock injector and be on my way; or with the condition of this injector should I do all eight? I don't need crazy injectors, but have heard great things about Warren Stock+ and the price is appealing. What other reputable places have stock sticks, or slightly above stock?
Here's the pics of the carnage!
If anyone wants some more pics while I have stuff apart let me know!
