On your issue I would change the check valve first. The valve is located where the fuel line comes out of the front of the head. If that is okay I would pull the injectors and check for any leaking cups. That is a big issue with these engines. I hope this helps with your issue. Please let me know if you have any follow up questions on this. Thank you
