Dumping Fuel...

(Short Story = read last three sentences)

(Long Story = read on)
I was on my home last night from our local meet, and nailed a hugh pothole. I continued driving for a mile or so, no big deal, until I started smelling gasoline. I pulled into a self service car wash, to inspect and find the cause of the smell. Apparently I struck the pothole with enough force it popped the passenger side fuel rail off the injector, and it was dumping a bunch of fuel all over the top of the motor and down the manifold. Thank God, no spark was present! So I pushed the fuel rail back down, tuned the key on to check for any leaks, and it was again spraying everywhere. So I took the fuel rail off and ralized I cut the o-ring, when I was pushing the fuel rail back down. So needless to say, it was a long walk home at 2 am.

So I headed to the part store this morning to pick up an o-ring kit. Went ahead and installed it. Checked for leaks, and made sure everything was tighten back down. All seemed good. Drove it home, and on the last stretch of road after I turn at the light, I opened it up and ran through the gears. Slowed down pulled into the neighborhood and smelled the infamous smell again, GASOLINE. I pulled into the driveway popped the hood really quickly, and noticed obviously it was leaking, but my fuel pressure gauge was pegged at over 100psi. So my assumption would be a bad fuel regulator, but any advice or direction would be nice. Thanks guys and gals for your help.

If the guage was reading that high your regulator is shot that's full fuel pressure from the pump. Is your setup still factory or is it aftermarket return style I forget.

It's a factory basket style with a aftermarket fuel pump inside.

Yep very likely the regutor is shot that's the only way to get 100psi at guage completly blowing right past the regulator defective I would say. Only thing is not sure if you can buy just the regulator never actually looked for the parts that way at work lol. May be time to return style your system.

Do you buy a return system as a kit, or do you buy everything individually and piece it all together? Just curious.

On a 05 the regulator can be bought separately. I saw it on Rock Auto while I was looking for fuel level sensor.

Don't set your truck on fire until after we race James.

Really glad it didn't catch on fire. You can replace the oem fuel pressure regulator at the tank. Your tuned at that fuel pressure. Make sure you have the correct injector o-rings James.
