Hi,my name is mike and I will assist you with your question.
What is the fuel line pressure?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

WE HAVE NO MEANS OF CHECKING THAT. THE INJECTORS WERE SENT TO A SPECIALIST.

Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 3 years ago.
Ok this vehicle has two fuel pumps and a fuel pressure regulator. From what you are describing one of the fuel pumps has failed or is weak or the fuel pressure regulator is starting to fail. Just from the systems the fuel pressure regulator is the more likely culprit.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

HOW DO i CHECK THE FUEL PUMPS AND REGULATOR?

Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 3 years ago.
You are going to need either a manual fuel pressure test kit or a diagnostic scan tool that has the capability of testing the fuel pressure,but the pressure has to be checked not only for correct pressure but to see if it is bleeding down.
