    39,000 miles and towed to the shop in Tulsa, where they can't even run diag. without replacing the injectors! I'm stuck in this crap-### Best Western now for 8 days waiting for the engineers to coordinate with the shop on fixing this thing...Not pissed, beyond that, but what the hell can I do to rattle some chains here? Now I know why Texas says to move to Oklahoma if you become terminally ill...because everyday is like a friggin Eternity!!!

    Dude- you're screwed! Oklahoma limits the alcohol content in the beer sold in that state so it's gonna take a week's paycheck to drown your sorrows.

    If you had only broken down in a real state you could be drinking Steel Reserve, Stack, Hurricane- before you even wake up the truck would be done and you would be driving.

    I'm REALLY sorry you had to stop in TULSA....

    Don't injectors usually last longer than 40k miles?

    If all six are showing failed then either water went through them or there is an electronic problem causing them to fail. But we haven't seen any fail like that. The small V8, V6 and DT 9, 10 do have issues, but so far the 11 and 13 series seem pretty good for injectors.

    I'm sure its electronic, had 2 injectors carrying all load. But sitting on my ### is killing me...You'd think they could figure this out by now. BTW MaxxForce 13. I need to have them look at the Jake too, because I was scared ####less going over rockies!

    We have seen numerous times the cam shaft lobes cut into the injector wire harness under the rocker cover. The harness is not secured very well and WAY too close the cam shaft lobes. The injector harness will short out when a lob comes around and slices across the wiring. Because the camshaft is rotating fast, vibration, heat and whatever, this is a very intermittent, and hard to trouble shoot problem. Unless you remove the rocker cover and pull up on the harness to check it, it is easy to miss!

    all 6 injectors on a MF 13 is very rare. I've seen what Heavy is talking about. Give me the last 8 of the vin. I can check the case file if they have one.
