I've never had this go bad and I've had many of these motors - some that
were really crudded up with stuff in the fuel systems.  That is why I
wasn't as familiar with it when Tyson had the problem a week or so ago.  I
hope I didn't just jinx myself.

Things I've had to check, clean or replace routinely are:
FI temp sender - replace (check the one you pull out for the fun of it to
see haw far out of spec it is).
Differential Pressure Regulator - remove and clean and replace o-rings.
Fuel Injector O-rings and replace injectors if poor pattern.
Air and Fuel filters.
Vacuum lines.
