Upate:
 Diagnosed as stuck injector which caused pushrod to break. Needs new injector, some springs, pushrod, and a few other items. Probably about $1200 repair. Wish I was a mechanic:)

Pretty cheap considering you'll need a new injector without core since the old one is toast. New injectors for electronic engines are around $2000 with no core.  Good Luck, TomC

Homer, I think if you are in a reputable shop, you will get a core credit for a hung injector. The new fuel is very dry and you are going to have to use additives. My 92 is on the border line of seizure with out additives but I think I saved it.

Well, I got the core. Took 8.5 hrs of labor @$85/hr to inspect damage, replace pushrod and injector, and replace 2 cooling belts. Parts about $550. Runs great now. Scary how a single injector can cause the engine to ride so bad with very low power. Regarding the additive NJT, what do you recommend? Thanks for all the help.
