1 Answer


My 1996 Olds Aurora had the same thing with CEL on. I pulled the Fuel Pressure Regulator vacuum line off and saw gas coming out which caused a severe Rich Mix in the Intake plennum. Replaced it and I fixed 5 problems I had for several years. It MUST be vacuum operated for this to happen.
