Welcome I'm Chris aka Moose

Now we need to check the fuel pressure to see if this incident cause the fuel pump to fail. Do you have the tools to check the base oil pressure and the actual and desired pressure from the injector pump?

Hello again, I am sorry you were not pleased with my help.

I hate that you paid to get an answer but left, what appears to me, not satisfied.

Just so you know I am still here and available to help any day. We can start over fresh or just pick up where we left off.

Chris
