Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Expert:  rpmdiag replied 4 months ago.

Check your fuel pressure with a gauge, but also check the MAF sensor for being dirty and check for an exhaust restriction too such as a plugged CAT.

Thanks, Ron

where do you messure fuel pressure, what does MAF mean,and your saying the exhaust could be blocked
Expert:  rpmdiag replied 4 months ago.

Fuel rail is where you attach the gauge.

Mass Air Flow sensor.

Plugged exhaust is usually the CAT converter.
