this is pretty common with 2000s

Put on a replacement check valve and the pressure jumped to the point it blew our pressure testing gauge (about 100 PSI) and car starting was even worse. The valve was placed close to the tank and in the correct direction. Removed the replacement. Checking pump pressure, which I believe should be about 35 PSI, we are seeing it go to 10 PSI sometimes, then climb to 20 and then the car starts to fire. Sometimes car starts right up, other times we have long cranking time. The variations in fuel pressure at start makes us think the problem is fuel pump. But if any of you have any other recommendations, we would be glad to hear them.
We will be trying to test electrical connections and current at the pump to make sure the problem is not just an electrical on.
If we were to change the fuel pump and don't want to have to disassemble the rear axle and rip out the rear end, have any of you tried cutting a hole from above to get to the pump? Did it work? Any hints. Saw a link to doing that on a 1998 but it seems the pump on the 98 is not in the same location as on a 2000 XC.
Thanks in advance for any help
Google that part.
On Amazon for about $28
Mount it as close to the fuel tank as possible
