Ford Powerstroke Faulty Injector Wiring Harness
A faulty injector wiring harness on the driver's side cylinders of the engine caused the engine to run the way it did in this video. I replaced both wiring harnesses in case the other one failed. I also replaced all eight glow plugs while I was at it. Runs perfectly now.
