You would have to monitor live data to be for sure what has gone bad, if anything.

if there is oil coming through then it is time for a new sensor.
check your fuel pressure well.

need an ICP sensor bud. you can drop the tank and take a gander atthe filter screen. If clogged up, theres whats called the HUTCH mod. Along with run'n new fuel line from tank to pump, it eliminates all air introduced into the fuel system. Its a cheap fix/mod too. I just scored on an icp off ebay(oem) for 85 buks. Also, with it idling, remove the oil fill cap, see iftheres any pressure coming out. Smokes ok, but pressures no good.

There's no need for new fuel lines all the way.

ya, i mentioned from tank to pump..(fuel pump). 3/8in fuel line, no need for high pressure, since its on suction side.

thats where the airs being introduced. Its a "slip-style clamp, holding the line to the fitting. Besides run'n 1/4 tank or lower, only other way airs get'n in there. Besides install'n an external filter b4 the pump, thats a reason for doing the mod.
