Re: Fuel Pressure Regulator Change-out (How To)
fuel injector pressure regulators are on average around 40 bucks or so, but could be less or more depending on application
if the reg is ruptured then there will be raw fuel in the vacuum hose when you yank it off the reg..
i just replaced one on a 2000 silverado 1500 pickup the other day with the 5.3 engine
it was very badly ruptured and was hard to start and ran badly and could smell the extra fuel it was sucking into the intakr through the vacuum hose to it
replaced it and all those problems and things went away
i erased the code with the scanner and its been fine ever since
we come across ruptured vacuum fuel regs pretty often,,
ford and gm both,, 3800 engines all years, 3.1 and 2.8 engines early 90s and older,, ford tauruses etc., trucks, and on, and on
if you totally disconnect it then it alllows full fuel injector pressure at idle, start, crank, etc,
many different vehicles parting out, engine underhood dash electrical and more parts! cars, trucks, fords, chevies, etc. - text me 217 671 7792 anytime!
