Engine Mechanical problem
1989 Ford F150 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 120000 miles
My engine started idling rough then it regressed to hardly idling at all. The exhaust showed a rich mixture. I check vacuum lines and I remove the other end of the line going to the fuel pressure regulator and found gasoline slowly coming out of the vacuum line where it was attached to the intake manifold. Apparently the diaphragm in the regulator ruptured.
I can see the regulator below the manifold casting and I can get the visible vacuum line off, but how does one get to the regulator in order to remove it without removing the manifold? Is it possible?
