    4.3L V/6 POSS. FUEL SPIDER. HOOK UP FUEL PRESS. GAUGE TURN KEY ON THEN OFF PRESSURE SHOULD HOLD FOR ABOUT 5MIN.
    IF NOT IT IS FUEL RELATED. MAY NEED TO TAKE IT TO A SHOP. AS THIS PART I MENTIONED (IF IT IS THE PROBLEM)
    THEN THE INTAKE PLENUM WILL HAVE TO BE REMOVED. PRETTY BIG JOB TO SERVICE THE FUEL INJECTORS. AGAIN "IF" THAT
    IS INDEED THE PROBLEM.
