Customer Question
On my 2001 6,6 Chevy...
On my 2001 6,6 Chevy Duramax-I had a fuel leak that put a gallon of diesel in the oil every 2000 miles. Could not afford to have it completely traced and fixed. I replaced all 8 injectors and new return line seals. I now have code PO206 and P1261. I show power to the injector in the harness. How do I check to see if the injector is working without taking the valve cover off? Your help would be greatly appreciated as I am retired on social security.

Do you check ohmes by crossing the two points or one point to ground?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Forget it since you can't answer me without it costing me more money! Why don't you just become a scammer!

Good bye!
Chevy Mechanic: TIM MOHR, ASE MASTER TECH replied 8 months ago

no, you check the ohms by disconnecting the injector connector, then use an ohm meter to check the 2 pins on the injector.
