And the fuel pressure is? No, seriously, check it, long term, stick the gauge under the wiper, you want to know the PSI WHEN its running bad, if the PSI goes down, its a pump35 and steady is good. There is no filter in the system, so that ain't the problem, unless someone added one inline somewhere. Good Luck.
