Added two gallons of oil this morning to get the truck to start. That may have been my issue the other day, but I didn't think of checking the oil level then. I;m blowing some smoke out the tailpipe, but it smells of fuel and from the engine noise, I may have lost an injector. Having a guy check it out tonight. As for the oil, my turbo is leaking pretty good, so that is probably it.
1. How long do injectors normally last? (I've had these in for 120k miles)
2. If it is a bad injector--and the only one that a system check shows is bad, should I get all 8 replaced or just the four on the side of the bad one (I figure at least all the injectors on the one side since the labor cost will mostly already be paid)?
3. Should I replace the glow plug wiring harness (and maybe glow plugs) in there since it and the glow plugs were done at that time as well--just as a routine maintenance?
4. What would be a great turbo to get to replace this one? A friend of mine was saying about a place near Denver that has turbos with the EBPV delete-dunno the brand yet, though. He said they go for $1,800.
5. Any idea why this forum had me logged out? I wasn't getting any notices the last couple days and when I went in here to post, I had to log in.

One of the most ineffective tire swap jobs ever done.... wife has different work schedule and didn’t want to sit at tire shop for 4+hrs. So towed the wife’s suby and been little over 3.5hrs since drop off. Got some general grabber at2s since I’m tired of swapping summer/winter tires and taking up space. Now the dog and I have about run out of things to do lol.
May head to Lowe’s/tractor supply since the dog can hang out there too.

You're the only guy on here I'm aware of that drives his truck more annual miles than I do. So I pay attention to your posts because I may well learn something about operations regarding these 20 year old trucks that are still driven regularly. I had a feeling that at 400k, you had probably had the tank down and performed the internal mods. I didn't know you have a suction side filter, which certainly influences the on-engine filter life and change interval.
A few years ago I drove my 99 from Los Angeles to Reno for Christmas. (With the 58 gal tank, I can go 800+ miles between fuel stops. I usually fuel on the way home, because fuel up there is cheaper than here). I let it sit 2 nights and it cold soaked in single digit temperatures. It fired up no problem, but only made it 1/2 mile and quit. The SoCal summer blend fuel gelled in the tank pick-up and starved the fuel pump. I could hear the on-frame pump running with no fuel in it. (In cold season, I refuel when I arrive, so it has winter blend in it if the temps drop during my stay.)
That's what I thought you meant by "no fuel sound". Cheers.

The fuel filter is after the fuel pump. With a restricted filter, there will still be fuel in the pump, and normal pressure, but a plugged filter will prevent the the from getting into the fuel galleries to the injectors.
If it does it again within the next 46,000 miles, at least you'll know it is not the filter.
