Re: [DML] Help?! Please? Fuel system problem.

I should also add that I previously had a hot start problem maybe 4-5 months
ago, thats when I replaced fuel accumulater, didn't help, then I replaced
Primary pressure regulator washers, also didn't help, then I found some
seepage at the fuel pump line due to the fuel pump hose being loose,   Does
anyone outthere know what bad can happen when you switch the hoses at the
fuel pump.   I am pretty sure that I created the problem when I stupidly
switched these hoses.   I have been struggling with the problem a couple of
weeks now, reading archives, checking everything I can obviously
eliminate.  Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated.
