Default Re: 86 ranger has gas pouring down exhaust

Is the gas leaking through the exhaust internally (is it coming out of the heads) or externally - actually leaking on top of the exhaust manifolds?

Common cause of a pig rich condition like that can some times be a bad ground, but will need more specifics on the problem.

Wouldn't hurt to check your fuel pressure. Also check for raw fuel in the vacuum line to the FPR if leaking out of exhaust pipe.
