[DML] Re: Fuel Accumulator



There are other less common causes for low/no rest pressure. The check
valve on the fuel pump could be leaking, the "O" ring in the Primary
pressure Regulator, leaky injectors. Hard to test (except for the
injectors) so it is easier to just replace the check valve and "O" ring.

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.
