Wonder if previous owner put new cups in when he did injectors . Could have some cracked ones. Might have to pull the injectors and look. How do they fair on a contribution test, and buzz test?

He stated he did injectors and cups. Showed my son photos of him doing the work, but who knows. We have been texting him trying to find out what he used for replacements but have received no answer. I am just hoping it is injector related and not piston and ring related.... or I guess which ever one is lightest on the wallet at this point.

When asking the installer, see if he used the correct sealant and special tool required to install the cups. Broom stick is rather unreliable. lol

I have a feeling that may be the problem. At least hoping so.... he did seem like the "make it work" type of guy. Finding a shop this weekend and will update the finding.
