Youre injectors are losing prime after setting. Is it an after market pump

Also did you ry changing out your tps or egr valve


After all the trouble and keeping spraying the starter fluifd it got to the point where it would not start. When I took it to the shop it was diagnosed to be the FUEL PUMP AFTER ALL. Np problem. PRAISE THE LORD!!!!
