question about cleaning my injectors,
has about 120K miles, runs like a champ, but its starting to smoke when accelerating
took it into a diesel shop, it would be expensive to find which injector or injectors are bad
i know they sell diesel injector cleaners

which one would be recommended

thank you, Ken

Excessive black smoke and lack of power can also be a symptom of inadequate boost pressure. Check air filter as rancherman suggested and check boost hoses for any leakage (cracks)... :roll:
