With these symptoms, you need to know what your fuel pressure is at the fuel rail in order to properly diagnose/rule out this. With a fuel pressure gauge attached to the schraeder valve on the fuel rail,.. at idle you should have 31psi. Then when you disconnect the vacuum line from the fuel pressure regulator (at the front end of the fuel rail), you should have 38 to 41 psi. Test this and report back. Most auto part stores have fuel pressure testers for sale or may even perform this test for free.
