Engine Mechanical problem
1990 Subaru Legacy 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 197823 miles
I am having a fuel issue. I have replaced 2 fuel injectors, my fuel injector pressure regulator. So that would make my car have 4 good injectors. The problem that I am having is that I am having too much fuel dumped into my system, causing fuel to spit out of my exhaust. It smells like gas in my engine compartment as well. How this all started was that I had 2 injectors that were dirty and clogged. I went to relieve the pressure out of my system and pulled both injectors out. I noticed that a ton of fuel guzzled down into the cylinders and about 5 gallons of gas was pouring out my exhaust. This is when I changed the fuel injector pressure regulator. I finally got the cylinders cleaned out of all the excess gas and was able to start my car. Now like I was saying it smells like gas in the engine compartment and gas is sputtering out of the exhaust but is not pouring out. The car runs rough still and doesn't want to speed up past 40. The car seems to be sluggish and when I step on the gas pedal it doesn't kick down to a higher RPM to allow me to increase my speed. I really don't know what is going on and can sure use the help as this is my only means of transportation.
have the same problem?
