good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist you have good fuel pressure. check the connector at the top of the spider unit for good, tight clean connections. it is possible the spider is the failure but tesing needs to be done to be sure. the other possibility is the pcm but it does run with spray. do you have a scan tool that can read information???
