Try switching the connectors to see if the problem changes injectors, if it does you could have high resistance in the injector wiring or the injector driver is starting to fail in the ECM. If it stays the same then you may have missed some crud when you overhauled the throttle body and it is restricting the fuel flow to that injector.


Well it was already spiting with the old injector ? The wires don't reach to swap them as they are but I can pull them away from throttle and make them reach so I will try that . one person said each injector has its own chip in ECM and one could be going bad does anyone know ?


Yes that is correct they each have their own driver, that is why you need to check for resistance in the injection wiring, if you have a resistance short and just went ahead and replaced your ECM it would work for a while then it would fail. I just had a toyota with a restance problem that I wrote up in My Garage. It was a real mess to get fixed.


OK thanks for the help tennisshoes
