    I’m having intermittent issues with my 2.2 1997 legacy. The #2 fuel injector frequently sticks open, flooding the cylinder with gas.

    Prior to that, a spark thread got stripped out causing us to pull the head. It ran fine for about 100mi then started running like crap.

    We replaced the original stuck injector but the new one is doing the same thing.
    Any thoughts?

    Connect a noid light to the injector harness and see if it is pulsing or staying lit. If lit you have a electrical issue with the hiring harness.

    Most parts stores sell them. Just ask for a noid light/fuel injector tester
