Re: Code P1316. Need some help. Missing??
If it is only one, it may still be the wiring. There was problems with melting plugs, so you should pull the VC before coming to any conclusions. You might still have problems with the IDM, but without the scanner to do a buzz test you are just trying to eliminate a couple easy (and common) problems.
yes and no, well maybe. I had the same problems you had, a ses light, a little shaking at idle, and no way to read the codes. I ended up going to a couple diesel garages to get them to get the codes for me. It came up as no.8 inj being bad. In the meantime, I had ordered autoenginuity so I wouldn't have to go somewhere for reading codes. I replaced no 8 inj, and the ses light went out. I ran the buzz test on the scanner and it failed no 8 again. As it turned out, no 8 inj AND the IDM were bad. That cost me another $700 from ford, and $200 for the inj. If your truck is shaking real bad, you might be missing multiple cylinders, and from what I understand, these trucks can still run with only 1 side firing. I cant imagine it being very pretty, but wow, thats half the cylinders dead.
