I would begin checking the fuel pressure, do you have an installed fuel pressure gauge? second would be the fuel filter/and fuel supply. Without clean fuel and proper pressure, you will burn up your vp44. It could be any number of things, also check your battery cables, I had your problem and replaced all battery cables and that was the fix. Good luck.
