Thanks for visiting Ja.com
Check the mass air flow sensor and try cleaning it out and recheck operation.
You can get build up inside the mass air flow sensor that can cause this problem. The mass air flow sensor probably isn't bad since there isn't any codes but it would be a good idea to clean it.
Also, use electrical cleaner something not too harsh. Damage to maf wires is pretty easy.
Do you know where the mass air flow sensor is?

YES NGS
Expert:  Tim West replied 4 years ago.
So it's running rich, check the fuel pressure to see if it's high. If it is suspect a fuel pressure regulator. This can also cause a p0420 (CAT EFF) to set.
Let me know what you think.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

TAPED A FUEL GAUGE TO WINDOW AND BEFOR AND AFTER NEW FUEL PUMP.
