I know  that my Fuel Accumulator is bad and leaking back into the fuel

would not be a  problem. Where do I start?


Best course of action at this point would be to start from the tank and  work 
your way through the fuel system until you get to the injectors. Replace  
every part that is even somewhat questionable as it sounds like there may be a  
few problems with more than just one part.  It is impossible to fix a  problem 
by going after the symptoms (like chasing down fuel pressure problems  when 
you already know the accumulator is bad but it hasn't been replaced  yet).  
There is no cheap way around it, just do it and you will be glad you  did in the 
long run.  Just physically remove and inspect every single part.  If it even a 
little dirty and you can't get it spotless, just replace it.   After all, you 
are talking about parts that will leave you stranded  somewhere..... 
Just my advice as I have been there, done that before.
