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!

weak fuel pump?fuel injected, no pressure regulator,no fuel rail, cant find one?

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.

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
