How do you find a leaky injector that won't code

Another remanned set of 175 remans. As soon as they went in again they were missing and smoking at idle until engine was warm. Had it scanned (solas ) several times and only code is glow plug 4. Ford here wants $305 to scan / diagnose. Balance is -3 to +3 across the board. Ficm ( 2 different ones ) holds 48v , icp, ipr, hpop, all new. Fresh 5w40 synthetic , racor filters, 2 bottles Rev-x etc. fuel pressure 64psi on gauge. Any thoughts or ideas for tracking this down ?

Sorry , truck is studded , deleted , coolant does not move. Oil cooler new as well. Newer injector harness too. Does it stock or tuned. Have I left anything out ?

With the AE software you could turn off the injectors one at a time. That would show the culprit.

They did that with the Solas, there was nothing noticeable . Tip must leak some fuel sitting overnight because on first start of the morning it smokes and smells of diesel then it's good when warm. Injector guy wants me to change harness again and cam sensor. He's 2000 miles away unfortunately.

Re: How do you find a leaky injector that won't code

I'm not the expert but I will say that neither of those options sounds like a fix for what you're describing as symptoms. I'd spend the time with a meter checking the wires before I spent the funds for a new one. What you're describing sounds like stiction, are the solenoids updated or original?

Fuel side. Oil side is good.

You could pull glow plugs one at a time and see which is wet but chances are you'd need to buy a new harness and a rering on the injectors would be cheaper I think. Are you making oil so to speak? Heck I'd probably just rering all of them but I'm a little OCD. :)

Not making oil. I thought about pulling glow plugs on one side and cranking with fuses out. Should shoot the fuel out .

if it's leaking bad enough it will.
