( Injector A Circuit low) and it sputtering and has a hard start, I noticed the stand pipe was not attached to the other piece when removing it from the oil rail maybe this is the reason for my hard start? but not sure why I got the codes.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I'm here to help 365 days a year, but not every hour of the day. I try to prevent delays as much as possible. Please understand I am not there and can only advise based on what you tell me. Let's get started.

Have you done the diagnostic steps for these codes yet?

If not do you need those steps?

Is the ICP pressure slow to build up above 500psi when it is hard to start?
