Re: [DML] Accumulator life.

I went through a similar problem as you last year. The accumulator was 
replaced about 5 years ago by the PO, so I assumed it had to be the fuel 
pump check valve or pressure regulator O-rings. After replacing both, I 
still had the issue. Needless to say, I had the accumulator replaced with a 
brand new unit (not NOS again), so I now expect it to last another 20 years.

If you haven't replaced the O-rings, then those are probably the issue. 
They usually don't last much longer then the accumulator.

VIN 4099
