fuel pressure regulator is bad. Don't run it like this very long it will spin the rod bearings. Change oil and filter when you replace the regulator. ASAP

Or the ECT is bad. coolant temp. sensor. Is the check engine light on? Pull the vacuum hose of the fuel pressure regulator and see if gas runs out. If it does it's bad.
