Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** you for visiting the site, I will be happy to assist you today.

.

Does it seem to act as if the fuel pressure is dropping? (like a surge)

.

Are there any trouble codes or engine light on?

.

No codes r indicated. Pressure drop ?
Expert:  Super Mechanic replied 1 year ago.

Yes, the fuel pressure could very well be dropping.

.

Let me start by saying that any money that you paid, or if you have a subscription, that money stays in your account until the answers are rated, (positive) regardless of how fast or how long it may take to get finished. You can FOLLOW UP AT ANYTIME, even after rating.

.

You will want to check the fuel pressure to see if it is too low. Also that the filter is not restricting the flow of fuel.

..

Then if the fuel pressure and flow are good, the exhaust may be a little bit restricted. You can have a back pressure test done on it at most exhaust shops to see if the cat is clogged.
