    I have the stainless steel fuel lines (less than 2 years old). I originally cleaned out the first two trouble injectors. Perhaps I have to do the same with the other 4. I also did a valve adjustment a year and a half ago..but I suppose it is possible they need re-adjusted (don't really make a lot of noise though).
    I'll report back once I solve the problem. thanks for the help!

    Just a follow up. The problem started developing again. So I bought 6 new Bosch injectors and installed them. No hesitation or stumbling under load or acceleration at all. When I pulled out the old ones the driver side bank was more "sooty" than the passenger side and again, suspect. If I have a problem again in the near future, then I will suspect something is fouling out the injectors.

    But for now, she runs better than she ever has with the new injectors!

    Don't throw away the old injectors. They can probably be cleaned.

    I still have them. I believe I can sell them as "cores" to interested people in the community, correct?

    Depends on how they got dirty. I hear of more problems trying to get them cleaned than I do people happy with the process. I won't remove rust inside. Which is usully the problem.
