Have you checked the timing?

If it's dumping that much fuel the "check engine" or "service engine soon" light should be on and you should have a trouble code for a rich condition from the oxygen sensor. Remember, this is an OBD I vehicle. Your trouble codes will be 2 digits and a different scan tool or paper clip at the ALDL connector must be used to get the codes. Check the fuel pump pressure and volume. Also check the purge valve for the EVAP system. It may be stuck open and allowing raw fuel to be pulled into the intake via the vacuum hose from the charcoal canister. Check the charcoal canister too. If it has gasoline in it, there's your problem. HTH. -Jim

pull vacuum hoses and look for wet fuel, that pressure regulator sounds faulty, good at 2500 rpm, not so if m p g is down to about 7 mile per gallon!

That sounds like quite the issue? Have you checked the injector wiring?? They have a hot and are triggered by a negative pulse. A short from the ecm to the injector would spray all the time. would explain why it's one not both. Pull the plug off the bad one and see how it runs on the other one. I would test/check the wiring.

will check that thank you

Are both injectors now firing? As a test switch the connectors on the injectors. Does the "dead" injector now fire? If so it's a wiring problem. If not it's most likely a bad injector. You may have gotten a defective one. I work at NAPA. It happens sometimes. Did you put your old PROM on the new computer? Also, the new computer must have the same service number as the original one. I doubt this is causing the problem but wanted to cover all bases. HTH. -Jim

Try finding a buddy's throttle body and puttin on urs. I put a motor in my other truck and when I hooked the two injectors up on the throttle body one side was stuck open. Let me know if that works
