    You really need a monitor for reading engine parameters. It can save you thousands. ForScan (a phone app) and an ELM327 OBDII adapter can cost under $40.

    1st thing to check is the oil and coolant temperature differential.

    Then you need to find out what your fuel pressure is. It must be over 45 psig at all conditions. The dealership can run this test or you can install a sensor and gauge for it. The fuel pressure monitoring will cost around $250 - $300.
