The fuel pressure is ok
The oil change was made 2 weeks ago
I did not check the injector
The ignition wire are connected perfectly
The spark plugs are brand new
The rest seems fine I notice that it is only happening when after a long drive. Maybe the problem is relate with the radiator.

Check coolant temp. Sensor to ensure wiring is OK and test sensor with ohmmeter.
