    Just got my truck back today. Not sure how they did it...but they used bad balance rates on 2 injectors to replace all under the special policy. Also said they had to replace the sleeves. I did ask any questions...just happy to get the truck back with new (rem) injectors. Only thing I told them was that it smoked at idle. But I knew the balance rates were off also.

    Fuel system is 100% stock.
    Fuel filter changed every 5k.
    If this set last 4.5 years/70k like the last set (minus the 2 that were replace at 800 miles) that will put me out of warranty...time for more filtration...and maybe a lift pump:D

    acording to the TSB
    injector rate
    fuel in oil
    hazy smoke at idle

    and a several other symptoms state ALL injectors get replace. the guys that have only getting a couple changed are getting screwed

    Where did you read "hazy smoke at idle" in the TSB/Special policy? I don't see it.

    It takes me 1/2 a day to get the truck ready for the dealer and then another 1/2 a day to put it all back...

    Smoke isn't one of the symptoms (but we all know what it means...:frown2:) for the special policy. If you follow the service manual it leads you down a different path to individual injector replacement.
