Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting 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. If in fact the engine tries to start with adding fuel then I would start first with making sure you have injector pulse at the injectors. You can do this with a standard 12 volt test light by placing the test end into the power side on any one of the injector connectors and the ground end into the other side and then crank the engine over. If you have pulse the light should flash. Check is for me and post back with your results and we can work from there to help you get this resolve.
