Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose).

Has the check engine light came on or flashed through this issue?

What tools do you have available to you to diagnose this?

Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.

Hello again Chris here,

I am contacting you because the post has not been closed out. We have 7 days to get a post rated or it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears you're not pleased, or need more help with this possible injector concern.

Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. I have the option to call you if that would be better.

Thanks Chris
