Hi, I'm Wayne.

I'll be assisting you with this issue today.

Thank you for coming to Just Answer

Your Question is as important to us as it is to you.

I am sorry to hear you are having this issue.

I go offline between 3-4 Pm CST. M-F

Weekend 2-3 pm CST for the day.

I suggest having the ECM flashed and updated.

The reason I say this is no fault codes, and fuel pressure is good.

I hope this helps you.
