    Rust, dents, miles, extra metal.
    Yeah they should be checked every 50k or so. As @Running Board Man said, you may have a burnt exhaust valve.

    This is a thing I went through 2 months ago.

    I didn't advise him to do anything, simply stated the fact you CAN get 4 injectors for less than 40 dollars

    Whole engine swap unneeded if it’s due to valves. A leak down test will tell you where the compression leak is. If it’s a burnt valve pulling the head and having a valve job done will work

    Special tool makes adjusting them easy. All you need is a feeler gauge set, the valve shim tool and some shims

    $40 injectors?

    3rd 4R transfer case issues you had, and giving said advice for someone with a 4th gen 4R?

    LC coils from a junkyard when I asked about Kings paired with OME?

    God knows what else since this is just by memory :rofl:
