Hello, I'm Chris. Thanks for seeking us for help.
You check the injector pump by cranking and monitoring desired and actual fuel pressure readings. The filter full and the pump running are not accurate conclusions that the lift pump is pushing adequate enough fuel. Have you done the diag steps for these codes or do you need those?
You want a excellent 5 star answer & I would like to be rated the same for providing it. Consider I don't know your skill level & I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies. Try your best to respond with good detail so I can do the same. I normally log in at 3pm and work late. A rating is required. Your rating me, what I type. I am not an employee of this website, nor have control over the fees or the time it took to get a response. If you rate negative or not at all you still paid, but I get nothing. I want you pleased with me and my efforts, so let me know if your experience here has come up short.
Thanks Chris
