So in the video when I was trying to start it you could hear it trying turn over then put put put like it wasn’t getting fuel. That’s what happened when I drove it a couple of days ago again after it just died off on its own for no reason. Then it just cranks right up. When I do start it up normally with no issues the gauges correlate then after a little cruise I notice the gauge tend to drop below 20 like it was showing. Can’t seem to figure it out and makes driving the car a very uneasy feeling bc last thing I want to do is get stuck in the middle of traffic. SUCKS!! I’m gonna pull the filter just to check it since it’s easy enough, then crank it and try pulling the line from the fuel pressure reg and see what it does. Do you think it could be losing pressure due to something electrical?My Glowshift gauges have been reading consistent for a couple years ( verified with megasquirt ). Looks like low fuel pressure...and the popping you heard could've been lean backfire. You'd be surprised how much air fuel ratio can change the exhaust sound.
Plugs don't look bad to me either. That oil would drive me nuts.
Your AFR seems like it's on target in the driving video. That goes against a fuel issue. I would expect to see the AFR at about 16- 17 for it to be truly running lean. When on the throttle it would climb and get worse as you put load on the engine.
