Your truck won't run right due to inconsistant fuel pressure. What are your symptoms that you suspect the regulator?

To test the regulator, get a couple feet of the 1/4" clear aquarium hose. Put the hose on the regulator nipple and suck on it. If the regulator is bad, you will see gasoline traveling up the tube.
