hi

check your fuel presure regulator..sometimes the diaphram will bust on these and raw fuel will go through the vacuum line

thanks

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
so you say check the fuel pressure regulator? That would cause this to do that and i dont have any codes!
Expert:  tims auto repair replied 4 years ago.

yes it can cause this with out giveing a code..if it is good.then the problem may be the ignition module..it is located under the coils

thanks

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Is there a way to check the fuel pressure regulator before i replace it and i will take the igniton module of today and go have it tested i bought a new one not to long ago!
Expert:  tims auto repair replied 4 years ago.
