Re: pressure sensor

You might have problems other that the pressure sensor. I had a problem
running rich and it turned out to be leaking a leaking injector and loose
heads. Pull your spark plugs and see if the electrodes are all light brown.

If you see that some are light brown and others are sooty black, your
problem will be in the cylinder(s) with the sooty black plug (leaking
injector, low compression, loose head, etc.), not a general fuel injection
system problem.

Also, take a multi tester and check the resistance of the trigger points per
the Bentley or Clymer manual.

My running rich, poor performance problems were a combination of all three,
leaking injector, loose head (low compression) and faulty trigger points.
Good luck.
