ANYTIME the CEL is on, there IS a code. The CEL does not just come on for no reason. Now, once the problem is no longer there, the code is not active, but inactive or a historic code. It is still there - well on '95 and newer vehicles anyway.
I can't tell you how they cleaned the injectors but, this is what the service ticket says....
"Fuel injector service. Cleaned entire fuel system including injector, intake valves, combustion camber and throttle plate. Labor and parts total $122.04"
Another line show the fuel filter replacement. It was $95.88
Yup, STEALership allright.
You CANNOT clean the intake valves, combustion chamber or throttle plate (especially this, since it doesn't even have one) with anything on a diesel. Cleaning the injectors is *possible*, but not for any where near $120, h#ll that wouln't even cover 1/4 of the labor to do it correctly.
They charged you $96 for a $15 filter that takes AT MOST 20 minutes to change? Crooks.
When you find out what is causing the CEL, I am very sure you will know what is causing your running troubles. The Cam sensor is a likely cause.
