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.

Inspect the fuel pressure regulator by removing the vacuum hose from it at the fuel injector rail and see if fuel runs out.If fuel runs out with the vacuum hose disconnected or any fuel is found at all even a slight residue then the fuel pressure regulator needs replaced.I have seen this fail before in the past needing replaced to correct this here.If this is checked and found to be o.k. 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
