A fuel pressure test will have to be conducted to see if enough fuel pressure is making its way to the fuel injection system. If not, the problem could be a bad fuel pump or a power to the fuel pump issue. You could also have a restricted (pinched) line. Fuel systems operate at high pressures and repairs should only be made by qualified technicians.
