It could be a bad injector. Either an open coil or the nozzle plugged. Remove the electrical connector and read the ohms across the coil - it should be around 12 ohms and steady. If it is a lot higher and rising, the coil is open. If you replace the injector, use a new O ring on the fuel rail unless you like doing the job twice.

Thank you
