Hi my name is ***** ***** am I speaking to ?

You have something going on with the fuel injection likely, I can direct you to put the ECU into the self-diagnostic mode, from there we should be able to pin point your problem,

If I can get the current mileage ?

The vehicle frame number (17 digits)

And lastly, are there any mods to the ignition/fuel injection side such as a Power Commander ?

Thanks
