My 95 Powerstroke is having a similar issue. Pulled injectors and it appears I am getting combustion past injector seats into the fuel rail. Truck still has the original AO injectors in it with 260K on it .Damn good truck, injectors are on the way, we'll see what happens. Allready tried every thing else (IPR, ICP, UVCH, etc.)
