IF you are getting injector circuit codes, then you need to check the fuel injectors and wiring going to the fuel injectors. You can use a noise light to check injector pulse to each injector one at a time. IT should blink as the engine is running. If the wiring checks out good, then I would suspect bad injectors or possibly a bad PCM.

i dont have a noise light is there another way? would that cause the blue smoke? and why would it just start
after i done all the other stuff to it?
Jeep Mechanic: Amedee, Jeep Technician replied 2 years ago
We wont know the answer to that question until we diagnose the problem. It could be just a coinsedense.. You can check power to the injectors using a test light. BUt that is only checking half of the circuit. A noid light is best.

ok got a noid light and checked all cyl the light blinks dim on all but cyl 2 and 3 it was blinking on 2 as well when i first tested it then went out all together then on cyl 3 it hardly blinks but the light is bright
Jeep Mechanic: Amedee, Jeep Technician replied 2 years ago
Hello and sorry for the delay! I am not sure what your saying. Are you not getting injector pulse on number 2 and 3 injector connectors with the engine running??
