Spent 20 minutes with a few tools and found this: - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


General GM Chat When starting new posts, please specify YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE type, and whatever modifications you have made. Chat about all things GM (and related cars). Off-topic stuff should be in the Lounge, and all Model specific mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

Pic is fuzzy because of all the lighting and me using my camera phone (not the best camera around).

Yeah, we looked and found the same stuff under the back bumper so it'* just road salt that got sprayed around the fuel fill door.
I know they are supposed to lock but this one wasn't.
I will be changing the fuel filter for safety'* sake this afternoon when I go to pick the car up...

Saw it on mythbusters! They did a test on putting sugar though the engine, nothing happened. They didnt run it that long but nothing happened. And plus only on 1 cyclinder? Its unlikely. Hey another thing it looks as if 2 cyclinders have been damage...Obiviosly not cause you would have said something but its looks like it in the 5 cyclinder?

Well, at least that'* relatively good news!

Keep us up to speed on what you find and on the repair. Good luck!

What are the odds a fuel injector may have gotten clogged/failed?
I would assume the o2 sensor would be reading wrong and would have given me a SES light.

Maybe I missed it, but did you tell us the backround on the failure?

There would have been more oxygen in the mix... The PCM'* correction to this would be to richen the mix.... But if the injector is bad there is no way that the PCM can correct for it... Also on the same note if the injector was bad and in too much resistance then you would have set an injector circuit fault code.... Not sure what happened there... But that piston is sure Burnt...

At the very least I'd make sure not to use that injector on the next motor

Completee 18k mile 2001 L67 is going in, from fuel rail down to the pan. Water pump and ICM from the 00 engine were swapped due to damage from the accident the 01 SSEi they came in was involved in.
