They should have a way of telling which injector is bad, but there is no way to tell how much life the rest of the injectors have remaining.
The cheapest way to replace an injector is to do it yourself, and that will cost you $220 to $250 each. The whole job would cost around $2000 (more at a dealership). You have used up half of the life of the injectors, or $1000 dollars worth. If your portion of the cost is only a few hundred for the work, then you are getting benefit (100k mile benefit). So do it. If you had to pay the entire cost, then I would have to see the fuel pressure before answering.
The fuel pressure is important!
You need a sending unit and a gauge for fuel pressure. In other words Ford did not install a sensor so there is nothing installed to transmit a signal to a gauge. You need to install both the sensor (sending unit), wire to a gauge, a gauge, and 12v power to the gauge. There is a test port at the upper fuel filter specifically for installing the sending unit. Lots of threads on this. google time. If you aren't going to install the sending unit and gauge, then have the dealership test the fuel pressure at WOT conditions. They have the tools to simulate it.
Can you pull the valve covers yourself?
I suggested looking at the dummy plugs, but if you have had it since new and you aren't aware of the dummy plugs being changed out, then YES, dummy plugs and stand pipes should be done.
Lastly, you should ask to talk directly to their diesel mechanic. Ask him about all of this. Service Advisors sometimes just throw out BS, and several I have met aren't the sharpest knife in the drawer.
Lastly (again) - get and post the code(s).
