I just put the injectors back in, started it and cracked each line individually at idle. It faltered on every cylinder. There did not seem to be one that acted any different than any other.

The vibration is bad and feels like a dead cylinder. I'm completely perplexed about the miss.

In looking back at the log book and speaking to my daughter I found a time where my son put 2.50 worth of diesel in. My daughter said he did that a country store out here. The pumps are not marked well and I'll bet he put gasoline in it. Maybe that explains the previous overheating.

I really don't know what to do at this point. Do I put injectors in to see what happens?

Thanks for any ideas anyone may have,
