Replaced the fuel actuator and one injector drove it a few miles. The next day started it up and it was pouring fuel out the exhaust pipes and smoke out the rear. Replaced the fuel rails thinking they could be cracked, still doing the same thing. Tuned it up, still running fuel out. It puts different codes in when you get others tracked down. The more you try to fix the worse it gets. Have a set of new injectors coming maybe that could fix the problem, if not has anyone ever heard of this before. Tired of buying new parts and stuff and it does not help, it seems to get worse. Says cylinder 5 is malfunctioning but it has compression and new injector. Put new O-rings on remaining injectors. Replaced gaskets.

on the fuel delivery line on top of the engine assuming its a multipoint and not a mono point injection their is a vacumn pipe going to the end of this where it connects to a roundish looking thing make sure this vacumn pipe isnt broke or perished
I had a similar problem that turned out to be dirt contaminated gasoline. The "fix" was always to replace the fuel filter but it would not stay fixed. In particular, each time I started having problems it was after I let the gas tank level get low.
What I did that you can consider was:
But a new fuel filter.
Get a 5 gallon gas can.filled with fresh gas.
Get some cheap gasoline proof container (or several containers) for waste gasoline.
Make a "vacuum cleaner" out of an electric in-line low pressure gas pump, some low pressure gas hose, and a couple of pieces of copper tube, 20 ft of two conductor wire, and two alligator clips. It connects hydraulically copper tube to suck out the gas tank, fuel hose, pump, fuel hose, copper tube to go into the gas can. The wire and clips are to hook the fuel pump to your car battery.
Drive the car until the fuel level is low.
Remove the fuel pump module.
Vacuum the gas tank into the waste gas container through the opening left by the fuel module. Try to get the dirt off the bottom.
When you have vacuumed all you can get, stop awhile and let the dirt settle in the waste container.
Vacuum the gasoline from the waste container back into the gas tank. Vacuum high in the container so the dirt stays in the waste. Try to wash any dirt in the gas tank to below the fuel module opening.
Stop a while and let the dirt settle.
Repeat vacuuming and washing as many times as needed to get the tank clean and empty.
Inspect the tank interior with a mirror and flashlight looking for rust, dirt, etc.
You never leave a car running, as it will overheat the Exhaust Converter When you run out of fuel, you sometimes ruin the Fuel Pump It depends on gas to lubricate it,as strange as it sounds Check fuel pressure & volume at the motor with a gauge
It sounds like a sensor is intermittantly loosing the data stream. Since the engine light came on, I would go to a reputable shop and have them check for codes. Many auto parts stores will do this as well and sometimes for free. Can't beet free. If I were to guess I would say something like the camshaft postion sensor is going bad, Or the crankshaft postion sensor, Or something like that. The code will tell which one it is.
Good luck, and if you have any further questions please....ask!
very likely the fuel injectors are damaged, replace them, the fuel pressure regulator and all rubber fuel lines, also pull the gas tank and replace the short rubber hose at the electric fuel pump, I know this is expensive but even a few miles of running would have wrecked havoc on the rubber components, that rubber debris will flow through the fuel system and will plug the injector's, E85 melts it and skin for that matter.
