Hello, to start you need to run a diagnostic check for codes with a scan tool. You will need to be able to look at some live sensor data. The ICP pressure needs to be at least 500 psi in order for the injectors to fire. The IPR needs to be approx 85% when cranking. With two injectors causing rough running conditions when cold until they warm up, this could be related to your issue. Im assuming you are current with changing fuel filters and the correct engine oil and the oil level is full. If you dont have access to a scan tool, you wont be able to do much of anything in troubleshooting this vehicle concern.
