After reading all posts Im still thinking worn injectors.  Connector tubes?  Wasnt there an issue with a loose rail on #4?  I just remembered reading forums years ago about this and it causes rough idle and leaks?  200K on injectors is alot.  A simple rattle test isnt very good.  Pull and bench test inj to be certain imop.
MAGA!  Again..

Injectors were all pulled and tested.  Tried new injectors, no change.   New injectors and other stuff fall of 2014 after it ran away with me going over pass in Idaho.  :yike:  But that's another story.  Woodchuck knows a little of that experience, towed to his shop the following spring 2015, to repair and replace what Idaho shop left off.

Someone mentioned the damper pulley, Thats my first thought after injectors.

I had my 06 start to shimmy so I replaced the damper with a Fluid Damper from Xtreme Diesel and it fixed the issue.
Spendy but it did the trick.

Just picked it up.  Idler bearing shot, and loose springs in flywheel.  Running smooth now.  Got a new clutch and pressure plate too.

Who knew a flywheel had springs.   :dunno:  :o  Guess I'm still old school chevy.  :chuckle:  I mentioned when I took it in, " I've been expecting it to be due for a clutch".

Lots of things wonít set codes. Lots and lots of things.

The tough thing about clutches and associated parts is itís tough to accurately diagnose a problem there when you canít see it. Most technicians donít like to guess whatís wrong with a vehicle. They want to be able to verify it. Sometimes to be able to verify something, things need to come apart.  Sometimes theyíre wrong. Not often( at least not the good techs) but sometimes. Sometimes itís a process of elimination.

Glad they got it fixed for you.

They all have springs.

Clutch, yes.   It's the 2 piece heavy flywheel that was new to me.
