    Drip where? Out of the nozzle? Nozzle line? Fuel pump? Oil filter? Help us help you.
    Pics help. And be more specific. And punctuation never hurts.

    Leave it off until you get a competent oil technician to diagnose and repair. Pressure has nothing to do with it.

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

    Could be a leaking pump seal. Or a bad nozzle, burner head fouled.

    Either way you need a professional to look at it
