hi, if the fuel pressure is too high or for that fact too low it will cause you issues such as you have

the fuel pressure should read (the first time you turn the key to run(not crank) the pressure should read at around -5.8-7.3 PSI..

also check the vacuum hose to it and see if there is fuel coming out of the regulator when you take the vacuum hose off or if you smell or see wet fuel on the hose .
