Coarse fuel pump regulator diaphram leak test? 850 1995

Hello folks. Klaus has suggested my slow starting problem could be similar to the one he had where the Fuel Pump Regulator leaked gas down the vacuum line.

In looking at the archives, I see where someone said in their experience FPRs last 150K-250K miles. I have 182K on my car.

My question is, do you think I can I disconnect the vacuum connection to the FPR and find fuel or a fuel odor, indicitive of the diaphram failing? I haven't gotten in there yet, but I assume I can break this connnection.

If I need to check the pressure, I will probably go to my indy. It would be nice to save the trip and $, but he has to eat also.

Thanks. Don '95 854T 182K
