FUEL PRESSURE IS OK
Volvo Mechanic: Brian, Mechanic replied 8 years ago

mean fuel pressure is ok or pressure regulator is ok. I have seen these regulators do this and flood cylinders with fuel?

Thanks

How long does it take to flood out?

Can you unplug injectors? and see it it gets better? such as its local to one or two injectors? or is it all of them?

Have you installed a NOID light on the injector, to see what kind of pulse they are getting?

Have you any stored fault codes?
