There is a bulkhead connector under the hood on the passenger side with a ton of wires. In the past, I have found this connector to cause all kinds of driveability issues.

Ok. Then chances are there is an issue with the fuel pump relay or possible pcm giving constant ground command. You need a shop that can track this down for you and give you a bid.

There is a wring diagram of the wiring for the fuel pump relay with wire colors. It is a 5 wire relay by the fuse.
