2005 duramax injector issues

Hi I'm not sure how this works I've never used a forum before. In July of this year my parents were in a motorcycle accident which took my fathers life and left my mother disabled since that time I inherited my fathers duramax, I have little to no knowledge of the issues that these trucks have and am in need of some help. Approximately 3 weeks ago it was below zero where I live and the truck gelled up I had the block heater plugged in but it still gelled. I got it started and it seemed to run fine I went out a week ago to start the truck it will not start. The fuel filter was new in the fall and when I took it off when it gelled up the fuel in it looked fine I poured it out and let it warm up in my house, then out power service 911 in the filter seemed to clear the issue up until last week. From what I remember my dad telling me the truck has been starting a little rough for a while but nothing to serious. I'm looking for any possible ideas or anything that will help me I have a lot of sentimental attachment to this truck and just want to get it back in top running condition

Sorry for your loss.

Get yourself an Edge Insight CS or CTS first and then you can check everything on your engine including injector health yourself.

where about is it that you hale from? if you're in an area that doesnt get all that cold often then the fuel you're buying may not be a cut winter blend. if at all possible go to a local truckstop, even if its a few cents more, and get theirs as their turn over rate is far greater than the diesel at a small gas station. a good fuel additive is always a good idea regardless; white bottles of powerservice or howe's prevent gelling in straight #2 down to extremely cold temps. running an additive in the summer to help with lubrication, such as the grey bottles of powerservice "DieselKleen", is also a good idea. i run powerservice myself because of the availability and my truck does seem to run a little "happier" since i started running it regularly. do a lot of research on your generation of duramax, which is the LLY. it has its short comings, especially head gaskets but after they are addressed properly the truck will last a very long time.

Will that work even if the truck won't start at all?

if you're gelled up completely you'll need the red bottle of powerservice, 911. that's what ungels. although it seems you've already done that. it seems you have other underlying issues.

ah, you live near chancellor cuomo. hmm, i honestly dont know for sure if they have cut fuel that will do the job with the temps that we've had. i live in northern new york where all the fuel come out of ontario and is cut. however running fuel additives are still a good idea around here and doubly so down there. im assuming you are getting it at the pilot off 787?

No I get it on St hwy 20 in near duanesburg and yea unfortunately near Cuomo but the job market up here is better then where I grew up. My dad ran power service all year the stuff in the white bottle so that's what I've continued to run in it. I went to a shop near cobleskill and the guy said if its something with the injectors it could cost near 6 grand to fix and I don't know of any mechanics in the area that are reliable or what other issues it could be

It does not sound like an injector issue really.

Are you sure it's gelling up? I remember having an issue last year going to Maine with ur dad. I was almost thinking it was getting air. Maybe a filter head rebuild. If u get a chance - next time ur in my area we can hook it up to efilive and check ur injectors, balance rates, etc.... I'd also replace the fuel filter regardless of mileage. I've run them for 2k miles before and had issues. Bad fuel! Replaced and fine. Just remember to always use additive - all year round. I use Stanadyne year rd. Welcome to the best Duramax site - these guys know their poop.
