Hi, I am a professional certified mechanic, with an engineering background, and 35+ years experience. I will do my best to assist you. Also keep in mind I don't know if you are a pro or a novice, so feel free to add any additional info at any time.
Can you check the fuel pressure, especially when it is acting up. That is easier said than done, but it will tell you for sure if fuel delivery, like if the filter is clogged up, limiting fuel flow the injectors is the problem. I would also check the onboard diagnostic system for trouble codes. The onboard diagnostic system many times will have information on what the problem is. This model had a problem sometimes of not illuminating the check engine light when yhere was a problem. Can you check the fuel pressure and check for trouble codes and get back with me.
