Question about Ford Ranger
Pressure loss is either a bad fuel pressure regulator on the fuel rail where the injectors are, or a bad check valve in the fuel pump in the tank. usually the latter.
A quick test is to turn the key to on and measure pressure. Should be 40 psi. Pump will hum for 5 seconds and shut off if engine is not running. (Safety step).
Pressure should drop very little for 5 minutes.
You can cycle the key off for 15 seconds or until you hear the relay click off. Then turn key back on to start pump for 5 seconds again to build pressure. This will help get it started for the day as it builds pressure that bled down over night.
Please rate, thanks.
