The pumps do have a pulsing fuel pressure due to their mechanical nature (probably not that extreme ... although if that gauge is not liquid filled, which helps dampen the pulsing readings, it could be pretty normal). You can check the fuel pressure regulator spool valve and bore for scoring or check the spring for kinking or bending. Make sure you regulator return screen is also clean. Cheers!

I have heard others say that bad injector orings or seal could allow combustion gas back into the fuel system. may want another opinion on this. I dont think your guage should look like that, and i would not change a fuel pump that is bad on a hunch.

i have a '96 and my truck does the same thing i have had 2 pumps go bad and i replaced both of them with brand new pumps. i put new fuel lines in all around the engine along with an entirely new fuel bowl (it also comes with a new regulator on the side of it). i also dropped the tank and checked the fuel pickup along with all the lines all the way up the where they go into the engine, they were all clear and clean. i also put in new injectors and VC gaskets, (which ALMOST completely eliminated the shuttering, it does it occasionally). and about a year ago i did the ICP sensor. but in the end i still have the crazy fuel pressure id love to know what it is.

no it has to do with the engine because it responds to the thorttle, and the truck also starts hard in the cold. i want to try replacing the IPC sensor in the HPOP
