Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting 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.

I have enclosed a list of all ground in the link below as well as there location.

If after checking these ground and the problem remains then lets check and see if you have good spark to the spark plugs as well as injector pulse at the injector and proper fuel pressure. If you can determine which one your lacking and post back with this I will see if I can help you determine the cause. Let me know and we can work from there.
