When I drained the oil, I got about 10 or more qts instead of 6.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
About 5 of it seemed to be fuel.

have you done a fuel pressure leak down test?

Ask Your Own GMC Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No, not sure how. I can check the manual.
GMC Mechanic: david craig, Owner/[email protected] 3D Atuomotive replied 5 months ago

its a regular fuel pressure test then you turn the key off and see how long it take the pressure to bleed down

Ask Your Own GMC Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
the problem would be too high pressure forcing fuel into cyls?
GMC Mechanic: david craig, Owner/[email protected] 3D Atuomotive replied 5 months ago

well if the pressure is too high, yes, but what I'm looking for is a rapid drop in pressure

Ask Your Own GMC Question
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
If there is a leak, where would it be and how would it get in the cyls?
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I will do this test as soon as I can.
GMC Mechanic: david craig, Owner/[email protected] 3D Atuomotive replied 5 months ago

the leak would be through the injectors, but you have replaced them, so that's out of the question. too high of a pressure be the issue, but if the injectors aren't pulsing correctly that could be the issue also. get a noid light and check injector pulse

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Ill do the pressure test and get the noid lite as soon as I can. Tks.
