Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. The issue that you are having is likely going to be due to a faulty fuel pressure regular, clogged fuel filter or weak pump motor. Either way, since the regulator and filter is integral to the pump assembly, the complete assembly will have to be replaced. Here, I am attaching information on the the removal and replacement of the fuel pump assembly along with testing information, just in case.
