Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone has any info on releasing fuel pressure safely on high pressure side of high pressure fuel pump so I can remove fuel lines to access intake manifold and valve cover on my mitsubishi triton. It's a ml 3.2 did.

I had one of these and have a manual pdf version. This was available on the Newtriton Forum here:

New Triton Forum


REMOVAL SERVICE POINT
> FUEL HOSE D DISCONNECTION
CAUTION
When disconnecting the fuel hose D, the fuel pressure in the fuel line is high. Thus, wait for 3 minutes or longer after the engine is stopped, and cover the fuel hose D with a rag or similar materials to prevent the fuel splash, and then disconnect the fuel hose D.

You may have to join as a member, it's still free I think.

This should take you to the post where the manual is located.

If you are removing the HP fuel lines, becareful, a lot of these fitting are not re-usable. No sure sure about the mitsubishi.

Also, any reference to fuel hoses isn't going to be 20,000psi either. Steel lines yes, but not a hose.
