My 97' 7.3l truck was recently diagnosed with bad injectors. My symptoms include no acceleration, or lack there of until the engine is up to warm operating temps. I seem to disbelieve the diagnosis may be wrong due to the return of acceleration and power. Also the parts and labor sort of shy me away from spending that kind of money. There are no warning lights lit nor did the shop explain if there were any errors in the computer. Could someone have any advise or another point of view?
I want to believe it is the EPR valve not properly operating. Any ideas. Thanks,Mike

Usually bad injectors will cause the engine to miss, shake, maybe blue smoke and have a severe lack of power.

This year truck and mine also has a flapper that stays closed until the truck warmes up. If I remember the oil/coolant temperature is what opens the flapper. I forgot what it is called. It is just after the turbo on the drivers side of the engine. Several members on another forum have disconnected it and blocked it open. Make sure the flapper opens and closes smoothly. Basically the engine starts up and the flapper closes due to cold engine. This is NORMAL. After warming up the flapper opens up and normal operation is resumed. I still have mine operational. If it goes bad I will just unplug it and wire it open. Complaints are for this: poor acceleration, wheezing noise,poor power, until the engine warmes up. Just my 0.02 and experience.
