Disclaimer: I was uninformed before buying my first diesel and did no research prior to, so please leave the "should have done your research" comments at the door. :)
Bought my '06 two months ago.
Just now got around to getting an emissions test (required for my county) and it failed due to not having a catalytic converter. The dealer's inspection sheet claimed it passed emissions. (Must have pencil-whipped that one)
Here's the backstory:
I fueled up last Friday morning and had the emissions test done Friday afternoon.
First time seeing an emissions test, put it on the Dyno and revved the crap out of it.
Starting Saturday morning, heavy, constant black smoke while driving and heavy bluish-white smoke at an idle. Has not stopped.
Took it to dealership (who illegally sold me the truck because it can't pass emissions) and they said #8 injector is not functioning at all. Also #'s 2,3,4,6 and 7 are messed up as well.
Tech drained some fuel from the filter and said my fuel is full of water. Claims I possibly pumped a "bad tank" of fuel and the emissions test put it over the edge.
I'm at the point where I just want to make them buy back the truck because I am not prepared for the much-needed maintenance to prevent this thing from breaking in the future. (Again, I know I should have done research.)
The only thing is, they are willing to install a new catalytic converter, so I'm not sure I can make them buy it back.
Can't really afford all 8 injectors, or even 6 really.
Any advice on what I should do, or any input?
