So you're saying you put new injectors in the truck and now it wont run?

Rough, Unstable, or Incorrect Idle and Stalling
Rough, Unstable, or Incorrect Idle and Stalling
DEFINITION: Engine runs unevenly at idle. If severe, the engine or vehicle may shake. Engine idle speed may vary in RPM. Either condition may be severe enough to stall the engine.
Preliminary Inspection
Refer to Important Preliminary Inspection Before Starting in Symptoms - Engine Controls.
Search for bulletins.
Inspect for RPO KPJ. If equipped, inspect for low coolant, low oil pressure, or an engine over-temperature conditions.
Inspect the vehicle for factory or aftermarket accessories that may contact the body and chassis. A grounding out condition may simulate a misfire or rough run concern.
Compare the scan tool data at idle with the scan tool data list. Refer to Scan Tool Data List.
Inspect the engine control module (ECM) grounds for being clean, tight, and in the proper locations.
Remove and inspect the air filter element for dirt or for being restricted. Refer to Air Cleaner Element Replacement. Replace as necessary.
Sensor Inspection
Test for an intermittent FRP sensor signal by wiggling the harness between the sensor and the ECM with the ignition ON and the engine OFF, while monitoring the parameter with a scan tool.
Observe the Actual FRP parameter at idle. The Actual FRP should be near 30 MPa. If the fuel pressure is low, a fuel pressure or sensor issue exists.
Observe the Actual Fuel Rail Pressure and the Desired Fuel Rail Pressure parameters. If the pressure difference is more than 2 MPa, a fuel control issue may exist.
Inspect for an intermittent crankshaft position (CKP) sensor signal. Refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections.
Inspect the CKP sensor reluctor wheel. Remove the CKP sensor and attempt to move the reluctor wheel front to back or side to side with a probe. If there is any movement the reluctor wheel retaining bolts are loose.
Inspect for proper crankcase ventilation.
Fuel System Inspection
Perform the fuel injector balance test. Refer to Fuel Injector Balance Test with Tech 2.
Inspect for a restricted fuel filter. Refer to Fuel System Diagnosis.
Inspect for a contaminated fuel condition. Refer to Contaminants-in-Fuel Diagnosis.
If the engine control module (ECM) glow plug control module (GPCM) or a fuel injector has recently been replaced, it may be necessary to confirm the fuel injector flow rate values. Refer to Fuel Injector Flow Rate Programming.
Inspect for a sticking Fuel Pressure Regulator. The symptom for this condition will be an idle surge of at least 100 RPM. This surge will be from 50 RPM above Desired Idle Speed to 50 RPM below Desired Idle Speed. Refer to Fuel Pressure Regulator Diagnosis.
Engine Mechanical Inspection
Inspect engine mechanical for the following:
Inspect the cylinder compression. Refer to Engine Compression Test.
Sticking or leaking valves
Worn camshaft lobes
Valve timing
Bent push rods
Worn rocker arms
Broken valve springs
Excessive oil in the combustion chamber—Leaking valve seals. Refer to Oil Consumption Diagnosis.
Inspect the following components for incorrect basic engine parts:
Camshaft—Refer to Camshaft and Bearings Cleaning and Inspection.
Cylinder heads—Refer to Cylinder Head Cleaning and Inspection.
Pistons, connecting rods, or bearings—Refer to Piston, Connecting Rod, and Bearing Cleaning and Inspection.
Additional Inspection
Inspect the following components of the exhaust system for possible restrictions:
The exhaust system for damaged or collapsed pipes
The exhaust manifold for a collapsed inner wall
The mufflers for heat distress or possible internal failure
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) on the reference circuit can cause an engine miss condition. A scan tool can usually detect EMI by monitoring the engine RPM. A sudden increase in RPM, with little change in actual engine RPM change, indicates that EMI is present. If a problem exists, inspect routing of high voltage components, such as fuel injector wiring, near the sensor circuits.
Inspect the park neutral position (PNP) switch circuit.
Inspect for faulty motor mounts. Refer to Engine Mount Inspection.
Inspect the intake manifold and the exhaust manifold passages for casting flash.
