First try replacing fuel filter and if problem continues replace fuel pump.


Thank you for the fast response. If the filter doesn't cure it and I get a pressure tester what kind of pressure should it be showing and where do I hook it in system? Thanks again


Just do what you did the first time after replacing fuel check fuel flow should have a a strong study stream.
