Hello,

Ok, with that year most fuel related problems won't set a code.

First if you haven't already, even if you have please double check the firing order....

I have come across this to many times and the people have checked and double check and still crossed wires.

If firing order is correct then next step would be to check or just replace the Injector Assembly. I say replace cause it is located under the intake.

Well I got the new injection in but I have thus ran into two problems. One I think being huge.
1: I have no information telling me where each injector plug/poppet valve goes where no numbers or letters nothing.I dont want to blindly start plugging them into the wrong port. I was wondering if anyone has a detailed diagram/layout showing where each injector plugs into its proper port
2 on the electrical connector that attaches to the top of this assembly I found some black sticky goop that almost completely coats the entire connector. Is this some means of protection/insulation for the connector? And if so can anyone tell me what it is and where to find it and if it is critical to the correct re installation of the new injection system?
Any and all answers or help is greatly greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Keith

Hey Keith,

It is simple once the assembly is installed there should be 3 lines on each side. And they go as they are, the one one either side toward front of engine go in socket at front of engine the ones in middle go to middle socket and of course the ones toward rear go the the rear sockets.

And I believe the tar like coating is a factory thing and doesn't have to be placed on new assembly.

Hey Keith,

Guess I should have posted the specs also before you had to ask for them. Anyway, here they are....

Lower Intake Torq is 35 foot pounds
