    could be a pressure regulator or a fuel pump check valve.

    If the injectors leaked that quickly you would get a cloud of black smoke out the tail pipe on start up. As always I agree with Roy! There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
