Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** are you taking your fuel pressure reading?

Expert:  Marty replied 1 year ago.

You need to be taking it between the top of the fuel distributor and the warm up regulator. The fuel pressure should be approximately 30 psi when the car is cold and rise to over 50 psi when the car is at operating temperature. If the pressure never drops to 30 psi you will need to replace the warm up regulator.
