Parts that I have changed. Plugs, Plug Wires, Rotor, Cap, Coil, Fuel Pressure Regulator, TPS, IAC, Fuel Pump and inner tank sock filter, Fuel Filter, Fuel Injectors. I cleaned tank spotless before installing new fuel pump. Checked all vacuum lines and their routing. No blown fuses. PROBLEM: Looses fuel pressure under load and dies. I have a fuel pressure gauge attached to the fuel rail. At idle with vacuum line to fuel regulator (30-31psi) without vacuum connected (39-40psi). If I crank motor it will idle all day long and I can rev it up with no issues. I get about 20 feet in gear and it starts sputtering, while this was occurring, I saw the gauge drop to 0-10 psi, then pick back up erratically under it levels back out. All parts replaced within the last week, One part at a time to try to determine the culprit.

If I turn the key without starting, the pressure gauge shows 40psi and takes about 20 minutes before it bleeds down to about 15psi

Some people have told me it could be a grounding issue.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The jeep is doing the same thing as before I replaced the first part.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The bleed down time is with the ignition off.
Jeep Mechanic: tim's auto repair, Mechanic replied 2 years ago
