Thanks for postingWhen standing in front which side is NOT running, the driver side or passenger side?Was anything done to the engine recently? Anything repaired or replaced?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It is the left side, when I stand in front of the car. Nothing has been done with the engine earlier.

The engine is running high rpm, but VERY weak.
Expert:  Ted Ritter replied 2 years ago.
The fuel pressure should be about 40 psiI think you should check the engine compression next.

Have you checked for spark to the spark plugs on the side that is not running?
