Answer 1
go and have the injectors checked and see if they need to be cleaned or replaced -
Comment 1
current cost of injectors..rebuilt Bosch-$400.00 each.....ouch. -
Answer 2
Fuel filter might be clogged, and/or the initial fuel pump might be failing. Filter first, and this should be changed every 50,000 miles or less preferably. I learned the hard way on this initial pump thinking that there was just the injector pump. -
