Hi there thanks This issue is most commonly down to a software error which pulls up a fault code relating to a cylinder knock limit attained fault ,the injector correction factors should be re-entered into the PCM. After doing this the PCM software needs to be updated to the latest level The injector correction value is a 16 digit number on the label on the injector, if you can't read this number then unfortunately the injector will need replacing this will then enable you to put the new correction value in from the label on the new injector.Compatible diagnostic equipment is required to input the correction value and to update the PCM software, This procedure should be carried out using Ford IDS diagnostic software If the fault persists after coding the injectors then you will need to replace the injector in the affected cylinder If you need anymore help or advice on this issue please let me know If you are completley satisfied with my answer /advice PLEASE RATE MY ANSWER Kind regards ***** ***** and have a nice evening Brian
