Thanks for visiting Just Answer,
Well the problem could be with the PCM.
You should see if you are getting injector pulse.
Check for B+ to the injector harness. If okay, go to the TP sensor and check voltages there. The O/W wire is a 5v VREF from the PCM, Bk/W is ground (must be 0.1v or less), the GRN wire is the signal wire and it must read from 0.85v to 0.95v. If high, unplug it to see if the injector pulse comes back. YES. Bad TP sensor.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
