sounds like a fuel pressure issue. Could you test the pressure at the fuel rail? There is a shroeder valve (like the kind bicycles have) on the fuel rail for testing....you could press it for a generous spray of gasoline, then you'd know the fuel pressure regulator was doin' it's job. You know 1996 till now is plenty of time for the butyl rubber vacuum hoses to degrade till leaking....you might want to consider nitrile tubing that will never go bad, or simply buy the cheap stuff and in ten years be replacing that too-

so answer, yes> vacuum attachment to the fuel pressure regulator has decided, I like ambient air from this split in the hose rather than performing the requisite function-
