No one in particular, I work in a shop myself and when we get diesels in for more than just an oil change, we farm the work out. No one in our shop has the specialized tools to take care of some things on the engines.....just crack the Yellow pages open and find a reputable shop that can handle this kind of work. Just my opinion.

if you can change a spark plug you can change a injector. If you kow what ones are leaking. Take them out and have them all tested. You will need injector sockets. You tried injector cleaner or atf yet? I dont know about fords but hino, toyota and cummins injectors are super easy to change out. What colour is the smoke? Usually white is condensed deisel from poor injector timing or to cold. Is it a hard to start? Does it put out a huge amount of soot from idle?

hino, toyota and cummins are night and day different from the ford ones in 96 powerstrokes. You have to pull the valve covers, pull half the engine wiring harness and then use a specialty socket to pull them out. It can be done in the driveway, but concidering the amount of work ect, I'ld send it to a pro.

HAHAHA!

farm it out man, the gasket is like 100 bucksif you fuck it up, since the harness passes through it, the injectors can be in the neighbour hood of 750 *a few years ago*

DO NOT RUN ATF! atf contains friction modifiers that help the clutch packs to grip. why'd you want that in your fuel, trying to make injectors stick?


also, get it scanned before you get too far into this, powerstrokes are hard on engine position sensors, causes all kinds of problems.
