41 kPa
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It's running rough but it won't run unless you open throttle body Had it running and idling but you couldn't give it any gas .
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It runs but won't stay running ,checked firing order (fine) it was idling 700-900rpms if you give it gas it would die now it starts n dies or idles rough
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 11 months ago.

ok, this is way to low, it should be above 339 kPa, have you checked all the lines going to the fuel rail and see if one is pinched?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I will as soon as I get home
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Does the gauge measure in lbs?
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 11 months ago.

I dont know? i am not there to see the gauge, it should say PsI or kPa?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It does both and it was 41 Psi
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 11 months ago.

ok, it should be 50 psi, so its still low, waht did the pressure do when you gave it gas?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Truck would die n gauge went lower
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 11 months ago.

ok, I think you have a bad fuel pump, can you pinch off the return line to the tank and see if the pressure comes up?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Truck is running and driving but sluggish the converter was plugged now its drives out until it shifts to overdrive then it starts sputtering and running ruff
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 10 months ago.

DID YOU PINCH OFF THE RETURN LINE AND SEE IF THE PRESSURE COMES UP?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 10 months ago.
