My 90 Loyal is pouring fuel and won't start. :mad: The manual I have doesn't talk about that much, so does anyone know what controls the fuel input on startup?

Thanks, Jerry

its been ages since i looked at one of these.

SPFI, so we caule out accelerator pump, stuck flaot, cracked carb body, bas gasket.

Stuid question, does it stop if you unplug the single injector?


I need to add some things here. This is my kids ride and it has not had much care. No tune ups forever and it has started intermittently the last few mornings. I pulled no. 1 plug and found it dry and still lots of gas pouring in from the injector. This is odd I know, but I'll update as we look into this.

Ok guess what your doing....

a tune-up and most importantly, a fuel filter.

I want you to unplug the injector. If the injector is shot, stuck open, with it unplugged nothing will change

We have to start someplace :)


Had the kid do a tune up and really couldn't find a way to unplug the injector, but he says it starts and runs ok now. I guess I'll find out tomorrow if he takes my truck to work again.

Sounds ignition related - plugs, wires, cap, rotor, etc. Test the coil.... could need a new ignitor as well.
