I'm thinking about dropping fuel tank to see if it's leaking in tank are a bad fuelpump.
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Are what you think I can check I will be checking back with you thanks a lot
Expert:  Dan replied 7 months ago.

You say you checked fuel pressure at the rail when it bogs down?

Expert:  Dan replied 7 months ago.

Is the engine misfiring?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I don't think so I put new injectors in it,I put new fuel regulator, be wires plugs ignition module and coil new distributor.going down the road slow it bogs down sometimes accelerate the pedal and it gets its power. He said yesturday he went about ten mile before it started doing it. Psi is 30 running when I power brake it and it does it gauge stats at 30 psi on the rail.
Expert:  Dan replied 7 months ago.

Have you checked compression? have you replaced the fuel filter?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Changed the fuel filter did a compression check all cylinders is the same can't remember the psi was it was a 100 and something and all cylinders are holding on the gauge. Maybe the fuelpump is getting hot and not pumping as much when going down the road I don't know.
Expert:  Dan replied 7 months ago.

You could tape the fuel pressure gauge to the windshield and duplicate the problem while watching fuel pressure.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I really thought about doing that I'm gonna see about getting alonger hose to add to gauge .
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
