You will have to replace the poppet. You can buy them one at a time from GM. You can also buy the whole set up aftermarket now. Good Luck

Engine light on. Scanner shows code P0172. What is the problem?


Overly rich fuel ratio, this is usually an issue with a leaking injector or unusually high fuel pressure which can be caused by a damaged fuel regulator.

1993 GMC Jimmy won't throttle up..changed fuel pump...sounds like fuel is running back into tank


Check fuel pressure regulator.Start engine hook fuel gauge to fuel line check pressure ready then pull the vacuum hose of the fuel regulator if pressure rises 5-10 psi then its good.

Bad idle on my 1995 GMC Jimmy. 4.3 Vortec CPI 4x4. 163k miles. When I turn the truck over, fires right up, and then goes into a sick idle cycle. The idle throttles from 500RPM to about 1500RPM and...


Unfortunetly....these spider injectors and fuel pumps can have very similar symptoms when failing. What I do know is I work on this motor more than any other motor in my shop. Very common with fuel problems...and I can comfortably tell you that they updated the injector kits on these car for a reason. The original model is junk. I have done these on just about every one of my cutomers vehicles over 150,000 miles. However, I am not going to tell you that is your problem....but it sounds fuel related. Did/does your vehicle skip? Leaking injectors will usually cause a skip due to shortage of fuel to that cylinder. I also have a computer that allows me to monitor the firing of each cylinder, and do an injector kill test. This is what I would do first. Unfortunetly, sounds like you can't so start with this: Clean your throttle body. The pintle that the IAC motor pushes in and out goes into a small port. Spray that port out with carb clean. Get a fine wire brush and get that throttle body clean and shinny. That pintle can easily stick on existing carbon in that port...new part or not. Check for vacuum leaking with carb clean...spray it around the intake and vacuum hoses...see if any particular spot changes how it runs when you spray it. Do you have a vacuum gauge? what is manifold vacuum? Since you are in the intake...make sure your puddled fuel is not due to pulling the main lines off the the injector assembly. After intake is off. hook fuel lines and harnes back up to injector assembly. key up (no start) vehicle...this pressurizes fuel system. look for leaking. The fuel pressure regulator is built on to the side of that assembly....its the round diaphragm with the tube coming out of it. If it leaks fuel out...that may be your problem. And you can replace that without doing the whole injector kit...fairly cheap. If not fixed....what is your fuel pressure. You need to have 60-64 PSI at key up. Try the carbon build up and intake test first...both quick, easy, and cheap. If this is not your issues...its sounds fuel related....just want to confirm that you don have a misfire/skip. That could change diagnosis quite a bit. Keep me posted....more than happy to help. By the way....I own all GM's too...lol...haven't learned my lesson yet

Is this the Vortec engine? If so, the fuel injector spider, has a built in pressure regulator and i would say it is spraying way too much fuel into the cylinders. At the same time is is washing your cylinders of lubrication, and that itself is not good.

93 gmc jimmy 4.3 vortec has a flooding problem. I pulled the injectors from the motor and turned the key on and excessive amounts of fuel sprayed out. could that be caused by the spider?


The most likely 2 causes are leaking fuel pressure regulator on the side of the spider, or leaking fuel LINE going into or out of the spider. Both are reasonably common failures. a replacement spider would come with a new regulator but NOT a new line, so verify which is leaking before you order a spider up.

They do not fail that often anymore, not like 5 or 8 years ago when gasoline still had mtbe in it, the vortec unit is very dependable nowadays.
