View Full Version : Fuel Pressure drops off??

04-25-2003, 07:59 AM
I cant start the car right now so i can only check pressure with the key on. My guage reads that it has 39psi with an adjustable reg. but the pressure reaches that at a max....then it slowly drops down with the key on to about 10psi. Do i have a leak somewhere? It seems normal but i just want to make sure i dont have a leak somewhere.

The fuel pump only runs for a couple seconds if the engine is not running, so after the pump shuts off it is bleeding down a little. If it doesn't go down to -0- then it is most likely just the pump bleeding down. I wouldn't worry about it unless you smell gas somewhere.
