What do you mean by CPS? How many miles are on the car? Any recent service history? Are you the owner or a private shop? Did you run a cylinder compression tests? What is the exact fuel pressure? Are you getting sufficient spark to all of the plugs? With the key in the on position does the yellow check engine light illuminate?
