Ok well i plugged a different scan tool in and no codes or no fuel pressure info .so what i did is took the the top off the fuel filter housing then drain the fuel out of the housing via the little plastic lever on the side of it then closed the lever off .I then told my freind to turn the key on to see how much fuel the lift pump is actually pumping into the filter housing .It looked pretty lame ,it took about 7 key cycles to fill the filter housing ,then i told my freind to start it .It started no problem and idled no problem (lid still off)the fuel level never came up over the top.
So i figured it has to be the lift pump,went and bought the carter replacment put it in .Now when i cycled the key it only took 2 key cycles to fill the filter housing up and when i started it (lid still off)the fuel overflowed.I put the filter housing lid back on and wella runs like a animal again.
