Check codes all modules since this uses a module for the Fuel Injector Control (FICM) and has many known issues with the FICM, engine wiring chafing and other issues that can only be checked with a CAN network OBDII scan tool. Not much else you can do to run diagnostics other than verify engine oil level and air filter flow and see if all warning lights on the dash come on when the key is turned to on such as glow and check engine light and go out when cranking.
