Is there any reason at all (other than a leaky injector) that forward of the injector body is dry while behind the injector body is wet. 5.7 350 in a 96 Chevy suburban. 200,000 miles.

Asked by Jul 23, 2015 at 05:00 PM about the 1996 Chevrolet Suburban C1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The upper and lower manifold
gaskets are in good condition. The
reason it is apart is I suspected a bent
valve after jumping time.
Compression was in the 90s on all
cylinders except for cylinder 8 which
was low 40s.

The pcv comes in somewhere and leaves oily residue.
