It most likely needs an injector. But you should check your fuel pressure, ficm voltages, and you can at the bare minimum inspect the wiring harness for chaffing. I like to current ramp the injectors with my osciliscope but you can use a meter if you want to check voltage to the injector. But yes it probly needs an injector.
