Hi,

My 96 cranks over but wont start. The fuel pressure goes up to 55psi then drops quickly after the key is turned off.

Do you
have the same problem?

Turn key on pump only runs a second or 2 to prime. Pressure should be steady when cranking.

It loses pressure with the key on and still wont start. It primes then drops right after.
