Is it an injected engine if so the fords were bad for the fuel pressure regulator blowing out when it does it spews fuel out of the vacum line fitting on the regulator

ya its an 88 5.0l efi - if it had a carb i would have been home at 2:30 when i got off work!

no quick fix for the regulator if that is what the problem is. You have to replace the regulator but you can buy it from lordco or napa you don't have to go to the dealer for it.

that sounds like what it might be, looks like the intake has to come off completely to get back their , looks like theirs somthing torn right in half back their and thats where the fuel is comin from (im used to the older trucks, hate working on efi)

it will either be the rail which is not fun(gotta pull upper intake off), or either the supply line/return line, If its either of the line you can no longer buy new ones from anyone, I tried Ford even and they said I was SOL when my return line sprung a leak.

gpt the intake off and still can figure it out, (although looks like i may have had a bit of a fire back their at one time!) some of the vacume lines are melted (easy fix) and the pipe from the cat to the pump/intake is toast , not sure if thats my problem it should still run even if i remove all that crap, might just have to suck it up and take it to ford

Turn your key on if the electrical is still mostly intact(the fuel pump will cycle for a few seconds) or jumper the fuel pump, to get some fuel pressure and see where the leak is
