tps, low fuel pressure, cas sittin for a long time? rust in the tank will lead to rust build up in the lines. run good fuel treatment such as "Seafom" bout ten bucks a can n u jst need one but only add with a full tank of gas cuz if u add it to 1/4 tank or 1/2 tank mitxture is too potent n could eat away diaphrams on ur fuel injectors. fyi. DO NOT MIX FUEL TREATMENTS.
