I am not too familiar with the EFI engines, as they are not widespread where I am, but I know a little. I will OPT OUT and see if another expert can possibly help you on this engine issue as I do not waste you time. Please do not respond as it will lock me back to question and no one else will be able to answer

Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

Have you tried to bleed the air from the fuel system at the fuel rail? It sounds like you may have an air pocket captured in the fuel rail that is causing this problem.
