Probably the spider injection. A fuel pressure test would need to be done by hooking up a fuel pressure gauge to the Schrader Valve, building up the fuel pressure, should be 56 to 63 lbs, and then with the key off let it sit. Watch the fuel pressure gauge, it should not drop more than 5 lbs. in three minutes. Otherwise if the check engine light has ben on then it is a possible Throttle Positioning Sensor. The vehicle would need to be scanned for trouble codes to verify.
