I have a fass pass fuel pump on the system and can hear it running. What should the fuel pressure be ? Going to check it today and the injector fuel pump is 1 year old.
Expert:  Chris replied 1 year ago.

Ok then it may be a lift pump or tank venting issue. Ry running it with the fuel cap off. If it still acts up, you probably have a weak failing lift pump and if so replace it. Pressure from the pump should be around 12 psi, and volume should be at least 20 ounces in 10 minutes. If it falls below those specs, replace the lift pump.

I hope that this information is helpful and please let me know if you need further assistance.
