In the low pressure system, fuel is pumped from the fuel tank to the primary fuel filter by the electric pump at about 5 psi to 10 psi during engine idle. Fuel is pumped to the secondary fuel filter which is located on the left front of the engine. e filtered fuel flows to the high pressure pump. A pressure regula- tor located in the secondary filter sends some of the fuel back to the tank. As noted, after the secondary filter, fuel is sent to the high pressure fuel injection pump. e high pressure pump is gear-driven by a gear on the camshaft and is located at the rear of the engine, in the engine's upper valley, requiring removal of the turbos and intake manifold. It's important to note that while the inlet pressure to the high pressure pump may be as little as 3 psi to 6 psi, the high pressure pump is capable of increasing fuel pressure to in excess of 24,000 psi. Normal operating high pressure to drive the injectors is about 5,500 psi, with pressure increasing depending on load.
