ok so i replaced the filter, ran better than ever for a week. when i changed the filter i removed the engine side line first, little pressure minor gas leakage. then when i removed the line coming form the tank side, it had explosive amount of pressure still in the line with the other line disconnected. assumed new filter end of promlems..... wrong. after a week of the best performance ever, wife calls me at work again, not broke down,but telling me when she is going up hills se was hearing a noise like water sprayin on metal, audible over the radio but only when going uphill???? i dismissed to her being mildly crazy. she said noise seemed as though was coming from the windshiled wipers. she seemed to think the fuild injectors were clogged, bought some fuel injector cleaner and put it in and said noise went away. so when i got home from work i wanted to see how it was running so i took it out drove it hard, ran great. then as i headed back home i pulled out of an intersection that started right into a 30% incline, had the petal to the floor. not one third of the way up the hill began to lose almost all power and was barley able to crest the hill at 5mph, drove another mile on the flat this way till had safe spot to pull off. the whole way it popped ran horribly. the amount of gas i gave it seemed to do relativly nothing same as before, at least while on the flat barely drug itself along at 5mph. got it off the road shut if off. waited no more than 3 minutes started it again. ran perfect the rest of the 15 mile ride home.no problem since but i told wife not to let it go over 3k rpm. my discos a automatic tranny. but both her and i drive standard shift. so shes understand the rpms. been keeping it under 3k rpm and its doin ok but wth is the problem. it didnt trigger any codes when i had this mishap. wife said the noise she heard dint seem to affect performance. now id think if i shut it off and start it back up and its fine, that it would seem to indicate some sort of sensor problem. yet i have no codes? ill buy a fuel pressure gage if i have to. thing about the fuel pressure ordeal is i cant check it unless i can get the vehicle back into this run crappy state of being since when it running fine the pressures obvioulsy ok. where to now?

Future plans: finish rock sliders, wear out my new tires then go bigger
P.S.if i only knew 4 years ago to stop all the leaks and problems all you have to do is replace EVERYTHING. this would have been a much simpler process.
