How long since a tune-up? Are there any applicable trouble codes? Use a gage and check fuel pressure. Some of the national brand autostores will loan out a fuel pressure gage. You may have to put up a deposit on the gage, but, you get your deposit back when you return the gage.

To check mil codes, you use a jumper wire at the A & B terminals at your datalink connector. Turn key just till dash lites come on, no further. Then the mil on the dash starts flashing, you count the flashes to get the codes. Your looking for two digit codes. Let us know what you find.
