There is no code for a bad ground. A code number never identifies a bad part, just a failed system.

We need the codes numbers to see if it has relivence to your issue.

Fuel pressure is critical and may also be a failed injector pump.

Temp sensor has no efect on your issue.

You need a new shop with someone who can give you the real reason for your issue.
