Then it wouldn't turn back on to maintain idle...

We had a predator but it didn't want to communicate...

So we had another scan tool- basic obd2

It tells me my fuel trim is at 40 psi- but my fuel gauge regulator up front tells me 30 psi...

I took a video of the hesitation the other member Kyle is going to upload it soon..

Any other ideas?

just to add to this while watching it run, it sounded like the engine is starved for gas/air like its not getting the proper mix of one or the other

my first thought after seeing it act up was there is something up with the FPR, injectors or fuel pump then taking the OBDII and having the 10 PSI difference across 2 gauges
