1983 buick skyhawk 2.0 with TBI not sparying fuel

\015 Spark is good. Tried starting fluid. Engine started and ran good until fluid used up.Fuel pump good and pumping fuel to TBI. Have swapped out injector and fuel pressure regulator with no effect. Checked injector wires. One wire come straight from fuse, have 12v. That wire also goes to ECM, ohm check good between ECM and injector. Other injector wire goes straight to ECM, also ohm check good. Fuses good.\015\012Noticed liquid oil on part of one ECM connector. ECM is mounted under dash. No evidence of external source of oil. Does ECM have internal oil filled component?Suspect ECM is bad, but have no fault codes.\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

I have a 1990 GMC Z71 4X4 with a 350 TBI 217K my problem that I cannot figure out is after giving the truck new plugs, wires, cap, rotor, coil, TPS and vac. line, O2, Map sensor and vac. line, air cleaner gasket, fuel filter--NO EGR on motor.. The truck just doesn't want to go once it hits second and will burp through the TBI leaving the truck with very little power getting to speed.

1988 buick skyhawk, starts but then dies! I changed the fuel filter, I can hear the fuel pump running when you first turn the key on. There is spark, no blown fuses. I can see the injector spray when you first crank it but when it starts, it stops spraying and dies. When I put a small amount of gas in the carb it runs fine until it runs out of what I put in. It is a 2.0L.

P171 code p171 lean to bank 1. 2003 Infiniti G35. Maf sensor seems to be within range. Only thing I noticed on my scanner is my long term fuel trim was 37.5% and 0 to 3%.
