I have a 2001 duramax, the engine was washed while running. Ran fine for about an hour, then started sputtering. Sounding like an old farm tractor. Then died. Could start it for a while. Through several codes, all having to do with injectors. Now the truck wont even start. Blew out the connectors for the FICM and used die electric grease in them. Still no luck. Please help.

You have water somewhere in a connector. Open the hood and let it dry out and you should be fine.

It's been over a few weeks. It still won't start.

A lotta de-greasers conduct electricity well. (Say if it got into a household lightswitch it could let sparks fly, ask how I know :D)
UNFORTUNATELY, if it got into a connector it MAY have shorted something out. Post the codes as it may help someone here figure out where to start. I never wash any vehicle while running. I DO warm them up first so evap will happen quick, and let them dry off.
