I did just replace the injectors on mine a few months back. Car had a terrible hot start problem. Ran rich as could be if say you stopped for 10 minutes at a store and came out to start it. Only way to start was to FLOOR it till it hit about 3k rpm then idle it at about 2k for a couple of minutes. Else it would idle at 500 and pour black smoke till it would slowly increase revs and clear its throat, so to speak. New injectors instantly solved the problem and seemed to make it run a bit smoother. Best guess is that a couple of injectors were sticking open and flooding a cyclinder or two. Not a cheap fix. About $500 by the time you buy all the other parts like rubber hoses that are now petrified. Once again, I think the victim of high heat.
