Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The first thing you need to do is to install a fuel pressure gauge and monito the fuel pressure while the problem is occurring. Normal fuel pressure should be right at 28 to 55 PSI. Anything less then 28 would indicate a failing fuel pump. Check this for me and post back with the results and we can work from there.

Fuel pressure is fine it is at 48- 50 like i said when i start it it is in high idle but when it kicks down it dies if i want to move it if i give it gas it dies
