    When vehicle is idling it should be 28 to 34 psi.

    When vehicle is idling and vacuum hose disconnected from fuel
    regulator it should be 38 to44 psi

    Fuel regulator is on the fuel rail,round small canister with vacuum hose
    connected to it.

    So the engine stumbles and then dies. Can't keep it running. Should I rule out the fuel filter and go with a new fuel pressure regulator?

    What is your pressure readings?
    Low readings could be a fuel restriction.

    I just bought a new fuel filter thinking I would start with the least expensive first. Hopefully that will take care of it. I've heard it's kind of a pain to replace. Should I have my local mechanic do it?
