[DML] Re: Accumulator life.

It is possible for the accumulator to have failed again. It is also
possible the check valve on the fuel pump is bad or the Primary
Pressure Regulator is leaky. At this point you cannot assume it is the
accumulator, you have to check these other parts too. A lot has to do
with if the car was stored for long periods of time during that 7
years and if you have a lot of Ethanol in your gas when you stored it.
These parts are not really mileage dependant. Age, the type of fuel
and how often the car is used has a large effect on the parts in the
fuel system, much more than actual mileage.

the fuel accumulator in '99 which fixed a hot start problem back
then.I don't know if or when it was replaced before that. I have only
driven the car a couple thousand miles since then. What is the
expected life of an accumulator, could it have gone bad again in 7 years?
