fuel pump may appear to be working but fuel pressure could be low Have the same problem with same vehicle. I've replaced everything but the wiring harness...and I mean everthing. Where is the plug located that you unplugged and plugged back in? It sounds like a dirty in line gas filter,will only allow so much gas to flow through until you ask for more. Good luck * Replaced filter and checked fuel pump. Fuel pump is OK. Had to to take it to a mechanic and he says that it may be a loose/cracked wire somewhere. I told him that it might be the CPS (crankshaft position sensor) but he says the diagnostics on it are OK. I have no idea!?!?!?! * Removed the wiring harness from the transmission to the computer and reinstalled it. This has taken care of the problem. Apparently it was a loose wire or a short somewhere that was fixed when reinstalling the harness.
