You will need a fuel injector testor, about a $100, and a fuel pressure guage, about a $100, to flow test the injectors.

You can ohm check them with an ohm meter to see if one or more has shorted windings. Remove the electrical connector and test between the two pins. They should all be about the same ohms. If one is significantly lower than it is probably bad. Its best to check them when they are hot (after the engine has warmed up).

SOURCE: 1995 buick lesabre custom. has a new fuel

even if you have preasure in the line that does not mean you have fuel going into the engine. you should check the injectors to see if they are spraying and if not you need to check the injector pulse to find out if the PCM is sending the signal to them to spray. to check injector pulse you will need a noide light to test the pulse it the light lights up you have pulse, but easy way to check is pull an injector and turn the engine over see if it sprays.

You cant check fuel pressure that way. You have to connect a fuel pressure guage to the fuel rail at the schrader valve. It should have 30-40psi when ignition is turned on. Injectors not functioning properly will cause a misfire Sounds like a fuel pump or fuel going out.

sounds to me that you need a computer since the injector gets its signal from the computer. You can get a noid light from auto parts store to test the wire attached to the injector. The light should flicker when cranking the car. No flicker chances are you need ecm.

Check and see if you are getting any fire. When you say that you know that you are getting gas, are you checking at the carb? If so, then it sounds like a electrical problem.
