Checked for intake air leaks found none, checked fuel pressure KOEO 35 PSI, specs 55-60 psi.

Removed and checked fuel filter was filled with dirt replaced fuel filter fuel pressure increased to 45 psi but not steady vehicle ran poor. We then replaced fuel pump with a new pump and we had 60 psi fuel pressure, the engine still was running poorly with DTC P0300 random multiple cylinder misfire. Checked coils seemed ok checked spark plugs were ok removed injectors  cylinder 1 and 2 found filled with dirt and blocking the spray nozzle. As customer was in a tight spot for money we cleaned all injectors manually with cleaning spray solvent and installed the injectors. The car started and ran like new, it is best to replace the fuel filters every 50000 miles or check your owners manual.

Most cases it would be the intake manifold gasket or a bad intake manifold, besides both up stream oxygen sensors and mass air flow sensors need to be checked and eliminated.
