Have a mechanic install a fuel pressure test gauge, turn key on and note pressure reading, turn key off and pressure should hold., not drop off quickly!!! If pressure drops as soon as key is turned off,, then suspect fuel injection spider....under intake plenum. Pretty common failure on older cpi systems...
