1991 Camaro PROBLEMS

ok i have a 1991 camaro rs 3.1L v6

ok i have this problem with my camaro, my spark plugs are getting filed out and soaked with gas. and the engine dies, i replaced all spark plugs and it fires right back up, after a day or two the plugs go bad and engine wont crank again. so i replace them and it fires right up. and it sounds like it is not running on all cly. i dont know what the problem could be? can anyone help me. im thinking that it might be the fuel injectors, but i dont wanna throw that kinda money at it if its not that at all...

any ideas anyone?

Re: 1991 Camaro PROBLEMS

Pull the vacuum line off the fuel pressure regulator and see if the nipple is wet with fuel. You may have a ruptured VR diaphram that is sucking raw fuel into the engine.

If the computer thinks the engine is cold, it will give a lot of extra fuel.
