cylinder contribution

Today I happened to run a code scan on my truck and pulled one code it was #5 cylinder contribution. I have no cel and the truck seems to run great and starts with no problem. I hauled 6000# couple days ago without any issue. Is this an injector on its way out or what?

Could be injector, or ficm......you need a monitor like edge insight.

How many miles on your oil? I ONCE tried going extended intervals on oil changes and at a little over 10,000 miles on the oil, even with samples coming back good I got that code so I changed the oil and added some RevX and have never got the code since. That was about a year ago. Not sure if that's what caused it or not. Just a thought..

2004 F250 CCSB King Ranch
4" MBRP Turbo Back Exhaust
Insight CTS with Fuel PSI and EGT Sensors
SCT with Gearhead Tunes and more to come
Gryphon FICM Programer
IPR Gen2 EGR Delete
ARP Headstuds with OEM Gaskets
Sinister Coolant Filter and ELC
Redhead Steering Box
285/75R16 Cooper Discover ST Maxx tires

And the wish list keeps getting bigger!!

You will only notice a difference with rev-x, for rough start and idle when cold. You really need to monitor battery voltage and ficm. Could also be logic side of ficm board, or maybe injector oil/fuel orings going bad.
