Ok here's my situation:
I had a new motor put in. Ran great for a couple weeks. Using Innovative's 190cc standard injectors. After about a week I start to smoke TONS of black smoke, even at low throttle. Huge clouds at moderate to WOT
Have the following codes on AE
P0263 Cylinder 1 Injector Circuit Contribution/Balance Fault
Flow insufficient Detected
P0674 Cylinder 4 glow plug circuit
P0675 Cylinder 5 glow plug circuit
Running eric's mild tow for the 190cc. I know the EGR
check engine light etc. is built into the program and I never got the EGR
code before. So something is up with that.
I talked to eric and he said injector #1 is bad. So I got a replacement. Got it to my tech to install but my tech said now AE
is saying cylinder 5 is showing the contribution fault code, not #1. He doesn't want to start swapping out injectors if that's not the problem.
He has done the contribution test everyday for a week and every time it shows that the contribution balance is fine.
He said some guy he knows at NADP in Alberta said that the injectors I got from Innovative are garbage and aren't properly made. Something about the nozzle being welded or not properly made/attached?
So my questions are:
Are the injectors by Innovative crap? I researched a lot before purchasing and I never found anything negative about them. They aren't Casserly but Eric said they are good and that was good enough for me. They were from a local injector builder near him. THey were all flow tested at 189cc
Could the EGR
valve be clogged from all the smoke and soot I have put out over the few weeks I drove it smoking? The EGR
code didn't show up until a week or so after driving it when smoking lots. And AE
never pulled an EGR
If the EGR
valve s turned off in a tune, can it still clog and cause a low power mode? The truck still hauls fast, even in tow, but if you roll into the throttle it bogs down big time. And I don't think it's turbo lag (Powermax) it seems different.
Batteries are new
What could cause those codes? Could it just be that #1 injector.
Thanks for your help guys, I haven't had the truck for a week and it's getting to be a burden. I have read lots of posts about black smoke and lost power, but I still have tons of power. I'm just tired of smoking out the neighbours.:-hair
