High Fuel Pressure
I have a 1995 Wrangler with a 2.5. My fuel pressure at idle is 60+psi. I assume there is a blockage in the fuel return line, but the line is clear to the tank. I removed the fuel pump and the fuel return dip tube appears to be pressing against the bottom of the tank. There does not appear to be a clear "cup" at the bottom of the tank and the rubber "stopper" is badly degraded. The Jeep has a bad gas smell when I let off the gas pedal. At this point I'm assuming the hard dip tube is being blocked by the plastic tank pressing against it. My thought is to trim the tube....maybe! Any suggestions! Thank you!!
Fuel pressure should be around 30 psi when running, and 40psi with vacuum disconnected or under heavy load. I would think you would be just fine with trimming the tube since its just return, some people trim an angled cut into the line to prevent the concer that you suspect.
