Hello Sir or Madam. Welcome to justanswer!


YOu have a bad fuel meter assembly thats inside the intake. The way to fix it is to replace it. you would need to remove the upper intake manifold and replace the part. Its referred to by many people as the "spider". Heres a picture of it....

Should I replace it with the SCPI or MFI?

Expert:  Anthony replied 6 years ago.
Dont convert it. Just replace it with a new part thats the same as you have but new of course.

I forgot to mention I did not have the miss before the intake gasket replacement but I did remove the spider from the intake during the repair. What's your level of confidence that this is the fix?

Very high. Get a new spider.
