    get a Hanes or chiltens manual for the car, then when u look up the code in the book, it gives you a flow chart to go by. that tells you what to test and waht you shuld see for numbers..

    first thing to do is to check the plugs on the injectors... see if one came loose. does the car run weird?

    Get a Helms manual, forget the Chiltons or Haynes.

    Do check your wiring though, and definitely check the plugs on the injectors.

    I've checked the plugs already. and yeah the car seems to run weird..like it idles really hard... but plugs have been checked and they are plugged in fine.. was going to replace the fuel injectors but dont want to spend 86.99 for each one if it's not the actual injectors that are bad..it just says the system is bad..so i dont really know which part of the system it is or what parts are considered the system
