Eclayton4 :

Hello and thanks for your question. My name is Eddie and I will do all I can to help.

Eclayton4 :

Let me first ask, have you pulled the vacuum line off the fuel pressure regulator and checked to see if there was any raw fuel in the vacuum line. ?

Customer :

no where is it located, and if there is raw fuel in it does it have to be replaced Can that cause the check engine light to go on and off at different times? Can the pressure regulator cause the hill power loss and in ability to get upto speed smoothly with normal pedal pressure? Friend gave me computer hook up meter, would that show anything?

Customer :

In past few months light would come on without affecting any performance and go off every now and then, now check engine light is on alot.

Eclayton4 :

Fuel pressure regulator is tough to get to on that model, it's passenger side, buried in the fuel rail.

Eclayton4 :

This is OBD I system, so if it's an OBD II scanner (for vehicles 96 and up) it will not work with your truck.

Eclayton4 :

You have a single wire and you have to count the flashes of the check engine light.

Eclayton4 :

On Trooper models to 1991, the single wire diagnostic connectors are located under the center console.

Eclayton4 :

Here is all the codes that it COULD be. Since the check engine light is coming on, I suspect you have at least 1 or more of these codes stored.
