Hi, I’m Ron and I can help you.
I have been in the auto repair business with my own shops since 1975 and also teach automotive repair. I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problem with the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computer data/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; we just diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results. I am also going to direct you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please be patient and permit me to do what I do best.
I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you through it.

You need to test the fuel pressure with a gauge first. You can rent one from most parts stores.

Thanks, Ron

The mechanic that hooked it to the computer said that the fuel pump was working properly he checked everything that he could possibly check and he told me that it probably something with the ECM so I bought a new ECM and it still doing the same thing I bought a new coil gave a complete tuneup a new EGR valve PCV valve clean the master flow sensor in a couple of other things

But I will go ahead and check the fuel pump myself
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have owned it for about four years and since day one I kept throwing a P0171 code and a P0174 code meaning Banc One and bank to running lean and it is still throwing those two codes he can't figure out why and I can't figure out why
Expert:  rpmdiag replied 1 year ago.
Your mechanic should have found this issue if he was using a scan tool. Those are lean codes and he needs to address mode 6 too.
Thanks again, and please don't forget to rate me and keep this link in case you need me again later on. I'm here to help you.
