In sorry my email has been slower at updating me.

Expert:  James replied 1 year ago.

If the fuel pressure is dropping to 13psi you either have a sticking fuel pressure regulator or a bad fuel pump. Those are really the only two things it can be. Unless there is a restriction inside the tank which is uncommon. The fuel pumps are known to fail on these engines as well.

Hello, did the fuel pump repair your issue?
