2006 6.0 with 2 balance codes help!

has 103k on the clock right now, just noticed a miss in the mid rpm range, check codes at a shop and says balance codes for cylinder 3 and 6. also misfire code reported. previous owner said he code a misfire code from 7 and replaced the injector. just filled with fresh desiel and drove 25 miles home. no codes yet but seem to run a little better but still has a miss. just wondering where to go from here, seems to have good power, idles fine, no smoke or anything. could it be a sensor, wire harness or should i go straight to the injectors? thanks

It could be harnesses, but probably just injectors going bad

Re: 2006 6.0 with 2 balance codes help!

ok got 2 new injectors ready to go in, here is my problem, did an injector buzz test and all turned out ok. got new codes one again for #6 injector code so gonna change that one. i did have a code on #3, but since i cleared the code it hasnt came back but now getting misfire code on #7 and it has already had the injector replaced. so should i change out #3 if i havnt got a code back yet or what could be causing the misfire on #7?

any help would be good also doing egr delete at the same time.
