Tried a new MAP sensor also .. Your not understanding it's not just a leak it is under pressure and blowing out every where, it's like it gets to the regulator then stops but the fuel rail is clear and not clogged in any way.....When I say blowing out every were I mean from the bottom of the regulator from the seal that goes into the feul rail plus out the vacuum from the PCV line pops it right out and sprays 3 feet in the air... HELP
It does it just by turning the ignition on also... seals are all good...It seems like it is getting to much feul to handle at idle (that is when it starts) but usally it will not start becuase all the feul is being blown out from regulator and upper plenum manifold..
Still waiting on a answer? It is not the pressure regulator or the o-rings I checked that before I asked the ? This all happened when I got done with changing the intake gaskets if that helps
does the fuel spray out with the key in the on position, or only when the car is running?
The fuel enters the rail on the rear side at near 60psi, it gets as far as the regulator, and provided all the 8 o-rings that have pressure on them at that point are sealed, none of the injectors are stuck open, the regulator is in place and functioning, and there is no cracks on the injectors or rail, that pressure is held in the rail until vacuum from the running engine opens the regulator and fuel is transfered back to the fuel tank. If any leaks are present the fuel will spray out with tremendous force and may appear to be a huge leak, when in reality it is quite small, it could be leaking from the tops of the injectors at the o-rings, through the regulator, or the regulator o-rings, or even the quick connectors at the end of the fuel lines where they hook to the rail.
I'm going to give you your 23.00 dollars but ther are still ?s I need to ask, I have it tore down and the fuel rail off of it at the moment tomorrow morning i'm going to put it back together. I will be in touch with you after that prob ask you a couple more ?s then I'll pay you. Your telling me things that are not happening it's not leaking any were except were I said. But I'll put it back together tomorrow and tell you again were and what is leaking.
Thank You for your response but not done yet. Would a couple of clogged injectors cause that much pressure leaking?
Clogged injectors could in no way cause the situation you have described.
