No i dont, i live in alaska and iam 3hrs away frm the nearest parts store..if you cant send an answer its fine..i cant keep checking my email.
Expert:  Fix_It_Man replied 2 months ago.

It sounds like you may have a bad fuel pressure regulator or leaking fuel injectors. Without seeing some of the sensor readings and checking the fuel trim readings it will be hard to tell for sure.

Even when it starts the whole engine use 5gal. Gas in 50 miles and no power even to get on car ramp

You either have a sensor that is reading way off, a leaking fuel regulator or an issue with a leaking injector. Could you get a different scan tool. That would help.
