Help

I had my 2005 Power stroke bulletproofed two years ago, including an EGR delete. The place that did it went out of business right after.

My truck just started running bad. I'm not sure what's going on, but I've been dealing with a sticking injector intermittently. It was idling and suddenly had a dead miss. The turbo boost is hardly moving. I tried driving it around the block to see if the miss would go away, but no luck.

The question is - have any of you had an EGR delete and then taken it back to the dealer? I don't want them to undo the delete and charge me a fortune.

Is the truck smoking at all? Mine sounded like a miss that graduated into a knock sound. Ended up being a bad injector that took out the glow plug. Watch your egts too. Mine was a cracked nozzle

It all depends on the dealership. Some are OK with it and many aren't. Ask them. +1 on getting the injector issue resolved quickly.

Thanks, guys. I found a different repair shop to take it too. They haven't had a chance to look at it yet. I had head gaskets replaced 18 months ago and they did the complete top end bulletproofing. They checked the injectors, but didn't find anything. Whatever the problem is, it's resulting in a dead miss. The whole truck is rocking when it's idling and it's barely running.

If it does turn out to be a bad injector, would you replace all of them or just the bad one?

The truck has 120,000 miles on it and all the injectors are original.

It really depends. You could replace them all but it depends if you want to spend that type of money. I replaced just the one when I did mine solely on the fact that I was planning on doing bigger injectors later.

I talked to the repair shop last night and they recommended changing just the two bad ones for $1400. That's a change from the local dealer. I was a diesel mechanic in the 70s and I know a little about them, although the modern diesels are quite a bit more complicated than the ones I use to work on. I took my truck to Ford several years ago because it was running really rough and I told the service writer that it was a fuel issue and that I had already replaced the air and fuel filters and there was no debris or water in the fuel.

The dealer replaced the filters again and cleaned the turbo and gave me a bill for $1500. I told them I was skeptical that this would solve the problem. The truck started running rough before I had gone 10 miles and had to be towed back to their shop. This time they diagnosed it as a broken spring in the fuel pressure modulator. Duh. Not only was this what I suggested when I dropped it off, it was a known problem in the 6.0 and could have been easily diagnosed using a fuel pressure gauge. That was my second negative transaction with them and I won't go back.

I appreciate your input and thank everyone who responded.

More bad news. The shop replaced the injectors and the engine is still missing on number 8. They found metal shavings in the oil. I've never had this much trouble with a truck in my life. I've spent more in repairs for this truck than I spent to buy my last new truck.

The news just keeps getting worse. After replacing the #6 and #8 injectors, the engine still had a miss on #8. They pulled the injector and scoped the cylinder and found metal pieces in the cylinder. It also looked like the piston was cracked. It's going to cost me another 4000 to 5000 to have them pull the engine and tear it down to see what the issue is.

A dropping injector can melt a hole in a piston.
Perhaps that's what has happened?

They said they found metal shavings in the oil and debris in the cylinder. I'm thinking a hole in a piston would explain that. They also said that it could be a cam follower, but I'm having trouble trying to picture how a cam follower would end up in the cylinder.
