brake was tight and tried to drive but was hard to move and then engine had cylinder 3 misfire detected took plugs out turned it over and fuel shooting out of that cylinder even after changing injector ,what else can i try?p0303 code -
Answer 1
Sure it is FUEL"shooting out" of # 3 cyl? Check it again with fuel pump fuse pulled see if fluid still comes out of 3. Sure sounds like a head gasket/head problem and coolant is what you are seeing. UNLESS vacuum circuit for fuel pressure regulator goes to 3 then possible reg. defective. Test for fuel in vac. hose going to regulator. Test for fuel pressure bleed off. Pressure test cooling system! -
Comment 1
yes it is fuel, replaced fuel pressure regulator, got same result ,disconnected injector wire and no fuel came out cylinder,could it be the ecm ? -
Comment 2
Circuit from ecm to injector needs to be checked but i bet the computer is the culprit! Injector can not be pulsing but being held open. Driver circuit falt. What codes do you have now? -
Comment 3
i would like to try and replace the ecm but can i get a new one and just put it in or does the ecm have to be programmed ? -
Comment 4
Yes it has to be flashed but you can get it already done by calling NAPA with the info from the original one. -
Comment 5
how do i get the info off the original? by numbers on it or by use of a scan tool? -
Comment 6
These #'s are on the unit, it will have to be removed to see them. -
