Car has 170K; Fuel pump replaced 10 weeks ago. Car ran for 10 days, then died. Car sat for 6 weeks. Replaced fuel filter and factory gas line (metal line into engine). Car ran for a week and died again. Tested gas flow / pressure by removing new line - gas " shot" a few inches. One mechanic / friend is wondering how much pressure the gas line should be putting out. Should it shoot further? Could it be a fuel regulator problem?
Notes: fuel pump " primes" every time key is turned over. No air / gas leaks anywhere. Battery & starter okay. Car starts when starting fluid is sprayed into engine, so we know it's a fuel problem.
Please help. Thank you.
