Is the injector cooling fan functioning? 
Is the plastic injector cooling fan shroud that passes from the 
injector cooling fan over the valve cover in good repair?
It is my understanding that the injector cooling fan is designed 
to activate based on a thermoswitch input to blow cool air over 
the injectors and prevent vapor lock.
