Have the fuel pressure checked. The rubber tube from the air cleaner box to the engine in good shape? No tears or cracks in it, good and tight?
Yes chap ... Fuel pressure good air intake pipe good ... I've just seen something about a lack of memory in the ecu ... A reset required by touching the battery terminals together ( bat disconnect !!! ) or the efi main relay sticking some I'm going down those routes next !!
Thanks for your input !!!
How much fuel pressure, in psi? Good luck with that approach! Possible exhaust restriction.
