teg1992 I was able to rig up a fuel pressure guage on the filter. I changed out to a Walbro 255. The fuel pressure, with no other changes, went from 40 psi to 50psi. I have lots of fuel bypassing the reg now.

Looks like the old pump was near dead!

teg1992 Yeah thanks. I read about that. I'll have to pick up an adapter for the fuel filter.

Built_not_bought You don't have to have a gauge-friendly fuel rail. You can install fuel pressure gauge directly onto the fuel filter. The hood will still close.

Stock Fuel Pump Problem??

Hi all. I'm in the process of getting my 1.7T back on the road.

I figured I'd check the injectors before I bolt up the intake manifold. I jumpered at the main relay to turn on the fuel pump, then applied 8.5V to each injector for 15s to turn them on, one at a time.

I ran a hose from the fuel pressure regulator to a gerry can for the extra bypassed fuel.

I found that in 15s I injected approx 100mL. They were matched +-5ml which made me happy. A little low for the quoted injector size (500) but 400 is in the ballpark at least.

Without the injector firing I noticed the output from the regulator was surprisingly weak. A trickle. I measured this at 250mL/30sec, multiplying out to 500mL/min, 30L/Hour.

When I turned on the injector the bypassed fuel all but stopped.

Is this normal for a stock pump? I guess the next step is to check the filter. Not long ago I checked it and it was fine...I don't have a great way to check fuel it doesn't have a fuel rail test port like a GM/Ford. They did one thing right lol.
