Hello weclocome to JA IS this a turbo charged motor and if it is i would check the air intake tubes for loose clamps or hoses. Eric

That would be a very good answer thank you for that but my engine does not have a turbocharger

The only reason i said anything about a turbo is there was no mention in the ost. I would get some carb cleaner then spray arounf\d the the iintake and the injectors and see if you have a vacuum leak. Eric
