so, at first glance the connector pins looked like they got bent too far at some point and arent making full contact. will get a better look tonight after work since there was a chance of rain yesterday and it never did.

Update. Went to the yard and pulled another fuel rail pressure sensor and the harness for it. Switched out the sensor and now it's, for the most part, staying running. Now the issue I'm having is every so often the idle speed will get so low that it dies out. Having the AC on or really anything that helps bump the idle speed up works, or even just give a sliver of gas to keep it from dying works, too. Will test drive tomorrow to see if the stuttering issues is still there or not but otherwise seems very promising

Check the pcv hose coming out of the back of the intake to the front of the engine on the drivers side. It may be collapsed.
