FICM failure ????

I would say it's your FICM that needs to be replaced. I advise you get it corrected soon, and not allow the condition to compound itself and give you a couple of failed injectors to boot.

If your looking to save at all, I just had my FICM tested and was only putting out 38v while it was running... Sent it to a guy I found on eBay in minnisoda to rebuild it for $120, that included shipping both ways..came back the same week good as new. Tho now since it was putting out only 38v, I'm now replacing my number 5 injector, so don't procrastinate.

I just got mine back from FICMrepair.com. Very quick turn around and can have them tune it for a little more $$. I had the atlas 40 tune put in mine and what a difference.
