Re: [DML] Re: Fuel Accumulator

I am not sure that my fuel accumulator is lasting 20 years.  I purchased the car in 2004 and replaced the fuel accumulator.  It is four years and approximately 2500 miles later.  When I park the car for one-half hour to a little over an hour, it becomes difficult to start requiring several seconds of the engine turning over and then it starts rather timidly.
What may be causing that?

More likely they employ TWO fuel pumps. One in the tank (or very
nearby) which is called the "Transfer Pump" and another to boost the
pressure up to full line pressure. The system won't work without both
pumps running. Are you proposing we trade the accumulator for a second
fuel pump? The system we have is just fine till the parts get old and
fail. A new accumulator will probably last another 20 years. Will a
fuel pump?
