HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Ok, the first step is to test the fuel pressure. I will need the engine size to tell you the fuel pressure specifications and how to test the fuel pressure

I'm not a mechanic- was hoping you or someone may have a solution- I'm not able to check fuel pressure
Expert:  Eric replied 1 month ago.

unfortunately there is no instant answer for this as symptoms indicate several possible causes and testing is required. the only other thing you can do is throw parts at it which is an expensive way to go about it
