Hello and thanks for using justanswer.com

We need to confirm that we definitely have fuel pressure to the rail. Since it will run on the spray we know it is a fueling issue. Since we really cannot access the injectors without removing the upper intake we need to go to the fuel injection connector on the side of the intake. Make sure that connector as well as the square connector next to the coolant tank is clean and secure. We also need to check fuse #17 in that engine fuse box

I have done that and it still does the same thing it definitely has fuel pressure on the rail put a guage on it and it never drops below 48 pounds but it goes up to 60 pounds when you step on the throttle when its running on spray

I have checked your suggestions and it's not that it definitely has fuel pressure on the rail that's the first thing I checked with a set of fuel injection gauges

Ok we will need to check for power at the injector connector with the ignition on then we need to check for injector pulse with a noid light. On the connector all the green wires should have power with the ignition on. The browns are the pulse from the ECM.

Green is hot brown has no pulse

Ok that comes directly from the ECM so check the connections there as well as the ground next to the power steering reservoir. Also check both cam sensors on the front cover.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have ordered a cam sensor to see if that is it but I live out in the country so it takes a couple of days to get it ?
