Hello and welcome to Pearl/Just answer.com, Super mechanic here. I will do my best to help you with your question. If you need any more on it just let me know.

You will want to check the fuel pressure to see if it is too low. Also that the filter is not restricting the flow of fuel.

..


The fuel filter is located to the rear of the vehicle on the right frame rail.

Also you will want to have the codes read to see what the trouble codes are. Autozone will normally do that for free as well as clear them.
