    ok explain this to me we still didn't get the civic running right. so what we did was change the fpr it was a used one so i don't know how good it was, so my buddy said turn the key and he pinched the fuel return line and boom it started what could it be? and what does it mean?

    i think i am correct

    but

    when you pinch the return hose you are building up more fuel pressure

    Yes that is what it would do in effect. It would be close to the same thing as running the FPR without any vacuum source, just more drastic.

    Yeah its true, a friends gauge was reading 95psi once, and thats what caused it.

    so do you think that my fpr is letting in to much fuel or to little fuel?

    sounds like to little - when you pinch the line raises pressure pumps faster- expand the line lower pressure pumps slower !

    What about the fuel pump? If it is on its way out wouldn't that cause the same problem?

    If the fuel pump is dying, it could be pumping very little fuel, in which case it would take a pinch in the line to raise the pressure up enough. FPR is easier to check though. I recommend AEM.

    hmm, usually a dying fuel pump can't "build" any pressure...
