getting this code (read by mini maxx) says Cylinder 8 Contribution/Balance. I cleared the code a few weeks ago and it just came back the other day. truck feels like it is running fine, no shaking, power loss anything i can notice. i dont want to make a small problem a big one though...

is this something to worry about or no? i have seen other posts here where ppl had to replace the injector/s. however, they had 3 or more cel and motor shaking and the such.

Get it hooked up to IDS and figure out what is actually going on with the injectors. Mine is in the shop right now, I had the exact same issue. It is probably getting an injector.
