new member in need of help!

Hello to all first of all! I'm having some issues with the fuel pressure on my truck and was hoping for some help! I have an 06 king ranch that has an Airdog 150 on it. I had gelled it up not real long ago. Before I gelled up it would sit at 60 psi for pressure at idle. After I got it home and warmed up I got it running and noticed it didn't have the power that I had prior to geling. I checked the fuel pressure again and the needle is a blur, bouncing between about 20 and 35. I can't figure it out at all. The Airdog is only a few months old. Could it be the fuel pressure regulator? Any info is appreciated!

Airdogs aren't known for their reliability with the 6.0's.

Do a search for a 6.4 fuel pump. I hear it's much better and will help the stock 6.0 fuel pump keep up pressure.

Double check your regulator housing on the secondary fuel bowl. Make sure the spring there is not stuck.

I pinched off the return line then the gauge really went nuts! Makes me lean toward the regulator a little more. I will check it out tomorrow. Thanks for the info.

Re: new member in need of help!

Did you change the filters after it gelled? That's pretty much common practice because the gel can damage the filters and cause blockage, let alone an opening for particles to get passed and not be filtered.
