Sierra Cosworth fuel system failure alert
The diaphragm in the OEM regulator may fail as it ages and hardens. If you find fuel in the vacuum pipe connected to the regulator its an indication the regulator has failed. Another indication the regulator may have failed is the inability of the motor to idle whilst running rich.
Direct fitment after market regulators are available with both fixed pressure inserts and variable pressure inserts. Another option is to have the OEM regulator refurbished.
