fuel pressure drop

Hi guys, have a 1995 dakota V8. It losses fuel pressure after sitting. Will crank for a long time, then will start when cold or sitting for about 45 min.

I hooked up a fuel pressure gauge, 40psi running(normal according to manual), but will drop to about 5psi within 5 seconds, after I turn off engine.

Cannot find any fuel leaks, I assume its the regulator,. How do i know for sure? Its mounted on the tank. Or could the injectors be leaking? (it doesnt flood after restart, so i dont think thats the case)

Fuel pump sounds normal

Thanx in advance for your help,

usually it is bleeding back through the fuel pump check valve and it likely comes as a whole unit such as a fuel pump module.
