Yes sure sounds like it. What size is the engine, the 4.3L?

5,185

Uh the above answer is 100% untrue a "stuck injector would NOT cause fuel to pour out the exhaust. When you replaced the gasket did you vacuum seal the head?

It's 2.2 4 cyl I have never vacuumed sealed a head after install and never had this prob

A fuel bleed down test would tell the story.
