No but I replaced all fuel lines and new filters same thing
Technician: Wayne, Journeyman replied 6 years ago

Morning

Thank you for that

I would check the filter next time

reason I am saying this , is the check valve may be letting fuel leak back

to the tank

HI

The pressure regulating, return valve is the one in the filter head going up

filter base on the engine has two check valves. They're not very expensive....go ahead and change them both. It is normal for the pressure to drop slowly after you shut the engine down. It should'nt drop very fast. The check valves are meant to produce pressure from the transfer pump, and keep fuel from draining back after the engine stops. Once the engine is off, let's say for a few minutes, the pressure in the lines will fall off to nearly zero.

part number is(###) ###-####/p>
