My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If the fuel pump is not working or is working but isnt supplying enough fuel pressure this issue here will occur like this.I have seen the fuel pump fail in the past before needing replaced.If the fuel filter is restricted this can cut back on fuel pressure or fuel volume causing this as well with the fuel filter needing replaced.I would have the fuel pump and filter checked/tested to see if either are the cause here.If these have already been checked/tested and found o.k. or if you need info on how to do this let me know so we can continue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
