SOURCE: how to replace a fuel pressure regulator

Is it the 3400 v6 or the 2.2l four cylinder? If it the v6 then what you have to do is first know where it is. It located on the end of your fuel rail on the driver side of the car. There will be a plastic hose coming off the top of the regulator, unplug it. You then have to undo your fuel line that runs into the bottom of the regulator. You have to use a wrench to get it off, not sure what size it is. Once you undo the fuel line the next step is to unbolt it from the fuel rail. There will be two screws that run in the side of the fuel pressure regulator that are facing the driver side of the car and are threaded in towards the passenger side of the car, just undo those two screws and the regulator should come off. Just repeat the process backwards to put it back on.

HEY!! I had same problem and i didnt know i solved it til i put in a brand new battery! I think the battery was getting old, and the extra amps told the 'computer' that the car wasnt running and it just died at start up sometimes. the new battery must have kept the computer from 'glitching off' when we started it. and all is great now!

Sounds like air in fuel line. Purge fuel line. By "crank", do you mean engine spins but won't catch? Try starter fluid in intake.

Fuel Pressure Regulator - Removal & Installing

The fuel pressure regulator is a diaphragm-operated relief valve with fuel pump pressure on one side and regulator spring pressure and intake manifold vacuum on the other side. The regulator's function is to maintain a constant fuel pressure across the injectors at all times. The pressure regulator compensates for engine load by increasing fuel pressure as engine vacuum drops.

The fuel pressure regulator is serviced as a separate component. When servicing the pressure regulator, make sure that the O-ring back-up, large O-ring, filter screen and small O-ring are properly positioned on the pressure regulator.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
The need to work as cleanly as possible cannot be over-emphasized. Even the smallest amount of dirt, if allowed into the fuel pressure regulator and/or the fuel rail, will find its way to the fuel injectors. The nozzle openings of the injectors are very small. Keep hands and tools clean. Clean the areas to be disconnected with a suitable solvent. Carefully cover open fittings and connections to keep out foreign material. Dirt in the injectors almost guarantees a clogged fuel injector and engine performance problems.
3.1L and 3.4L (VIN E) Engines

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Relieve the fuel system pressure using the procedures found in this section.
  3. Remove the upper intake manifold assembly. Please see .
  4. Disconnect the vacuum line from the pressure regulator.
  5. Remove the regulator retaining screw and remove the retainer bracket. Using a clean shop cloth to catch fuel spillage, carefully pull the regulator from the fuel rail. Twist the regulator slightly while removing to ease removal. Discard the O-ring.

To install:
  1. Clean all parts well. DO NOT use shop compressed air to test or clean a fuel pressure regulator. Clean the fuel pressure regulator screen, if necessary. DO NOT immerse the fuel pressure regulator in a solvent bath or it will be damaged.
  2. If the filter screen has been contaminated, it should be removed and the pressure regulator replaced.
  3. Lubricate a new pressure regulator O-ring with clean engine oil and install on the regulator inlet.
  4. Install the fuel return pipe to the regulator.
  5. Install a new retainer and spacer bracket into the slot on the fuel rail and install the pressure regulator to the fuel rail. Tighten the fuel return line nut to 13 ft. lbs. (17 Nm).
  6. Connect the vacuum line to the pressure regulator and install the retainer screw. Tighten to 76 inch lbs. (8.5 Nm).
  7. Inspect and verify that the retainer and spacer bracket is engaged in the slots in the fuel rail. Grasp and pull on the regulator to ensure that it is properly seated.
  8. Install the upper intake manifold. Please see .
  9. Connect the negative battery cable.
  10. Inspect for leaks using the following procedure:
    • Turn the ignition switch to the ON position for 2 seconds.
    • Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position for 10 seconds.
    • Turn the ignition switch to the ON position again.
    • Inspect all areas for fuel leaks.

Other size engine can find in autozone.com (free register).

Hope this help (remember rated this).

Location of fuel pressure regulator


It's on the fuel rail. It has a vacuum line going to it. On the v6 engine it is right in front of the throttle body, drivers side. On the 2.4 engine it is on the passenger side next to the timing cover.

Probably needs cylinder head and gasket, for that rice. Cylinder head gasket is around $1700-1800.00.
Fuel pressure regulator is not too difficult, you have to disconnect fuel line where it goes into fuel rail. and remove regulator, then install new regulator and put fuel line back in. You will loose some fuel, so loosen fuel line slowly, and put a rag around it to keep if from spraying out too badly.
Hope this helps.

2001 Pontiac grand am looks like some type of fuel problem. The car will not run but about 5 or 10 seconds at a time. We have already changed the fuel pump, but it didn't seem to help.


If the fuel filter has not been replaced, check the fuel pressure regulator at the fuel rails and make sure the vacuum line has not been disconnected or damaged in anyway. If the vacuum line is good, check the fuel pressure regulator for any damages and malfunction. Check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve and you should have 42 to 45 psi. Good luck and hope this helps, keep me posted. Be glad to help you get your car running 100% again soon
