Tested injectors replaced one and still shake at...

I have an 06 dodge 3500 with the 5.9 cummins and its a 6-speed. I had a shake at idle ever since I bought the truck 7 months ago. It only shakes at idle when u rev it up it goes away when ur driving its not there either. It doesnt miss or anything like that just a constant hard shake. I saved up money for injectors because I was told by various people and forums that that was causing my problems. I took them out Saturday had em tested Monday was told #2 injector had high idle and high returns. So I bought a Bosch injector and the other ones tested fine. So I put them in last night started the truck up. Ran perfect for about 3 minutes then started to shake a little. Nothing like it was. So I was happy figured I fixed the problem and what little shake was there was just a cummins thing. This morning I started it and the terrible shake was back. I don't get it. Does anyone know what's wrong with my truck. No one can seem to help me????<br />

Does it have the G56? They have a dual mass flywheel and when they start to go bad, they will add a horrible shake around idle....May be something to look into

The OP stated; <i>&quot; So I put them in last night started the truck up. Ran perfect for about 3 minutes then started to shake a little. Nothing like it was.&quot;</i><br />
<br />
If it was related to the clutch/flywheel, would it not have started shaking right away? The fact that the truck exhibited a different behavior after the one injector was replaced would indicate to me that it <i>may</i> still be related to the motor/fuel system.<br />
<br />
If it was me, I think that I would perform some additional diagnostics before investing a bucket of money in something that may not correct the problem. (No disrespect intended to other posters suggesting that the shaking may be caused by other issues.)<br />
<br />
The reason this thread caught my eye is that I had a similar rough idle/shaking problem with my '03 recently (in sig below, bone stock). I ran a bottle of Diesel Kleen through the fuel system and the rough idle was completely eliminated. I figured that I must have had some gunk building up in the fuel system that the DK knocked out. I've since installed a new fuel filter for extra good measure.<br />
<br />
I'm not saying that the OP's truck has this issue, but this was a cheap and simple thing for me to try first... I WAS freaking out that I may have injectors going south, but it's running smooth as silk now (well, I guess<i> smooth</i> is a relative term in the land of CTD, huh?) <img src="images/smilies/hehe.gif" border="0" alt="" title="hehe" class="inlineimg" /><br />

The weird thing is mine doesn't make any noise. Does change shake. Doesn't shake out of control or anything just a constant kind of slow shake. Not a vibration. When u push the clutch in doesn't change the noise or shake. Do you still think its the flywheel?<br />

Do you all still think its the flywheel? I have a baby on the way and that's why I'm trying to spend as little as possible just wanna make sure instead of guessing and throwing parts at it<br />
