Unhappy 89 Camaro IROC 5.0 won't start

Hi gang,

5.0 Tune Port fuel injection won't start. Distributor was fried. I replaced it, then did the catalytic converter, spark plugs, fuel pump, and starter. Ran okay, but idled rough - needs 3 fuel injectors, 2 are weak, reading in single digits, the last is reading 11 - but the motor doesn't seem to be getting fuel. Fuel pump is working. Pressure regulator? Could the bad injectors have just locked up?

Some advice on where to go next would be great. Thanks in advance.

I would replace the bad injectors. If you still have the problem I would replace the in-line fuel filter. It should be under the car about middle way's. Good luck, hope you get the problem fixed soon. Todd
