I would check to see if the fuel pressure regulator is leaking fuel into the vacuum hose.

On the top of the engine, on the fuel rail, its round and has a vac hose coming out of it.

1351 has to due with high voltage spikes (spark). I seem to remember something about it being related to erratic spark, or timing off? There is a whole list of things to check but what it boils down to is one of the main ignition components (Pickup coil, Module, wiring from the computer to the module, or the computer).

4, do you think a worn out distributor might be causing this?

1351 can be caused by timing being off, a bad ignition control module, primary side of the coil, vcm, wiring, most likely cause is a bad ic. I could see how a bad dist could give feedback and could cause it. Also check for low fuel pressure, extended crank can cause this code.

I didn't realize an extended crank could cause that!

I would definitely check the regulator for leaks or get a fuel pressure gauge on it and see what happens then!

That should be a CPI setup. There should be a big bulk connector on top of the plastic intake plenum with two steel lines on the driver side of the connector. Those steel lines are the fuel lines. If you follow the bigger one back you will see a black cap. Thats the test port for fuel pressure.

The regulator is located underneath the intake plenum. If you skillfully use an inspection mirror you can sometimes see the regulator leaking onto the lower intake manifold. you will need to look through the throttle body It is muchg easier to figure out with a fuel gauge.

The CPI and SPI systems use an injector(s) and a poppet valve. The poppet valves require a minimum of 56 psi to open. If its 55 psi they will not work, I am not exagerating. 1 psi can be the difference between enjoying the weekend and having the weekend shot.

This is the poppet, this part is the piece that clips into the lower intake and sprays the fuel onto the intake valve.

This is the whole assembly. The injector one one end and the poppet on the other.

    • 44 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY. One thing you always can count on here at Lake Iwanttobethere is that after a lousy day there will be a nice day. Warmer, party cloudy skies and it is warm where I sit at my desk here in the den. The brown dog is at my feet, his paws on my right foot keeping tabs on me. Yesterday was a rain day and normally I look forward to rain days as they give me time to catch up on indoor projects. Rain days in the dead of winter however do nothing more then create work. Ground is frozen so all we have is runoff which here in the cabin means a wet floor in the basement. Overnight the water freezes and now we quickly go through the ice melt trying to get rid of the ice so it is safe to walk on the sidewalks.   Ranger Rick is reporting that his trail system at Samantha Lake is a mess. The rain and warm weather has eaten away at his trails. The short cut across Samantha Lake is not recommend to use as their is water on the ice and getting on and off the lake is unsafe at best. No fishermen on the lake yesterday but then again it rained more then a half an inch. Big hockey game on tonight the Wild against the Black Hawks. We will see if putting the seventy inch TV in will draw a beer drinking crowd. I would love to be there but have been under the weather the past few days and will be watching from home.   I have gotten a few e-mail’s asking about Lake Iwanttobethere and it is a good time to be a little more clear about the Lake. The wife has never had her named mentioned in the eleven years I have been writing about the lake. She told me she did not want anyone to know her name so she is always refereed to as "The Wife" of my four kids only the boys names have been used as they own business in town, the daughters have never had their names mentioned except the one who paints is sometimes spoken about as at Christmas she paints store front windows. None of the eight grand kids names have been mentioned but they are often refereed to a granddaughter number two or grandson number three. The two ten year olds are spoken about often and are refereed to as "The Tenners"   Almost every one in town is based on someone I know. A few of them have passed on but I still write about them, kind of my tribute to them. I could still be writing about my old dogs Bud and Barney as they left me with a ton of stories untold but I shared my loss with you over them and have moved on. Now I leave it up to you how much the Lodge and Resort are. One of you called the Resort a bar and it is far more then that. The Lodge is a place for members to hang their hats. There are lockers in the basement for their stuff and a chair in the Main Room to sit and be left alone. Not everyone drinks, for example everyday Tom sits at the end of the bar with a cup of coffee every morning and does his crossword puzzle. I never mention him much because that is just what he does. The FELLOWS on the other hand seem to be doing something all the time that you may find interesting. The Resort is a place for the guys to get away from the Lodge if that makes any sense.   The Resort has become like our Lake Iwanttobethere old guys home. Marv, Elmer, DOC and Vic are the core and none of them are married and they are doing just fine thank you. Chuck, Hammering Hank, Skinny and I are the next wave, the in betweeners so to speak. Married but still looking for a hideaway. Where is Lake Iwanttobethere? I’ll save that for another day.
    • Season has been over for awhile but now I have a couple of Grouse who just strut in my back yard taunting me. Duncan has tried to put the fear into them but no matter how quick he is they are up in the trees before he can get halfway across the yard. He does come back with that stupid lab look on his face so I guess everyone is enjoying themselves here late in the winter. I hope to hear them drumming this spring.
    • cool!!  and thanks again for the info!!  i look forward to getting it.
    •  Used to, then he lost it to Vince and Nick Cage in a Segway race on Tropicana.
    • Your going to like it. Definitely not "the best", but still definitely worth the money. Mine came slight damaged... one of the flanges where the leg attaches to the barrel was bent slightly. It was easily fixed but I decided to contact RK about it... They said to send them pictures, and within 2 days I had a phone call offering either a full exchange or $100 credit to my card. I gladly took the credit. I fired it up around Xmas time in 15-20 degree weather. I was worried how it would do in the cold. It handled it like a champ and only took about 15 min longer to smoke an entire pork loin.
