My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

This fault here may be due to low fuel pressure.If you have not had the fuel pressure tested with a fuel pressure test gauge this needs done.If found to have low fuel pressure this may be the fuel pump itself at fault here.I have seen fuel pump failure in the past before cause this type of fault here with the pump needing replaced.If this was already tested and found to be o.k. let me know so we can continue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
