350 fuel injection engine. Idles and has power, but sounds like it is missing. (But I am old and deaf!)

Either fuel pump or fuel pump circuit or you may have a clogged fuel filter I would start there but more than likely since it will start on manual fuel feed you have a fuel pressure problem. Could be as simple as a fuel pump fuse/relay found under the hood

check the following "easy" items: Fuel Filter, Alt output, Plug Wires for short, Injectors, Fuel Line to ensure I hasn't shifted to a hot spot. I also agree with Sholaway with fuel starvation.

As soon as I find these things, I will let youknow. I amnot used to this much stuff being under a hood (LOL). I am a 1948 Chevy guy (in my mind). One you can set under the hood with the engine. I am looking forward to getting it running right. But I will put it in storage for the winter in the next few days If I cannot get the problem solved. I appreciate the response and they seem logical. Thanks.

    The belt is turning just fine. Something isn't catching. New coil packs so I doubt it's the spark plugs. There is a faint smell of gas.
