1999 buick fuel rails removed

We are replacing our supercharger and can't get the fuel rails off to replace the supercharger. I believe that all you have to do is unbolt them and they are suppose to come off, but they are not. Any help would be appreciated.

thanks

If you have all the bolts out, you just have to pull. I have one that stuck on me real good and ended up breaking a piece because of it so try to be careful, but sometimes they stick on pretty good.

Hope this helps!

Where is the fuel tank pressure sensor located in a 1998 Buick Regal Supercharged?


Hi,

I believe that I can help you.

Go to your throttle body.
  • A large diameter fuel rail is attached to the top of the intake manifold and supplies fuel to all of the injectors.
  • A fuel pressure cap is located on the rail for quick pressure checks,
  • The electric fuel pump is attached to the fuel sender assembly in the fuel tank. It pumps fuel constantly from the tank, through the fuel rail on to the engine and back to the tank.
  • The fuel pressure regulator that is mounted on the fuel rail maintains pressure across the injectors under all operating conditions.
Unfortunately, my scanner is inoperative and I cannot provide you with a diagram

    Intake manifold gasket / replace


    3.8L Engine

    NOTE The 3.8L (VIN K) non-supercharged engine uses a two-piece intake manifold consisting of an upper air plenum which mounts the throttle body and a lower intake manifold assembly which houses the fuel injectors. The 3.8L (VIN 1) supercharged engine uses a similar lower intake manifold. The supercharger serves as the upper manifold.
    Lower Manifold

    NOTE Two bolts which fasten the lower intake manifold to the cylinder head are accessible only after the upper intake manifold is removed. These bolts are located in the right front and left rear corners of the lower intake manifold. Remove the upper intake manifold to service the lower intake.
    The 3.8L (VIN 1) supercharged engine uses a manifold similar to the 3.8L (VIN K), but the supercharger serves as the upper manifold.
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. On 3.8L (VIN 1) engines, remove the supercharger assembly. Please see the procedure in this section.
    3. Remove the upper intake manifold using the procedure above.
    4. Remove the EGR outlet pipe from the intake manifold.
    5. Detach the engine coolant temperature sensor wiring harness from the sensor.
    6. Remove the lower intake manifold bolts and carefully lift off the manifold.

    To install:

    1. Clean all parts well with degreaser, especially the gasket seal surfaces on the upper and lower manifold pieces and between the lower manifold and the cylinder heads..
    2. Install new gaskets to the cylinder heads and new seals to the engine block. Carefully lower the manifold into place. Apply thread-locking compound to the bolt threads. Make sure to install the two hidden bolts in the lower intake manifold. Hand start all bolts, then torque evenly to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm). Follow the toque sequence, starting in the center, then working outwards in a circle.
    3. Install the remaining components in the reverse order of the removal process.

    Upper Intake Manifold (Plenum)
    1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
    2. On 3.8L (VIN 1) engines, remove the supercharger assembly. Please see the procedure in this section.
    3. Tag for identification, then remove the right side spark plug wires.
    4. Disconnect the ignition wires from the fuel rail.
    5. Remove the fuel rail. Please see Section 5.
    6. Remove the cable bracket from the intake manifold.
    7. Remove the throttle body.


    NOTE Two bolts which fasten the lower intake manifold to the cylinder head are accessible are accessible only after the upper intake manifold is removed. These bolts are located in the right front and left rear corners of the lower intake manifold.
    1. Remove the upper intake manifold bolts and carefully lift the upper intake manifold from the engine.

    99 buick regal won't start


    Hello, the Regal seems to have that problem. Insert your key in the ignition and turn it but do not turn the car on, make sure you here the fuel pump kick in, then at the end of you r fuel rail there should be a cap, remove it, use a very thin screw driver and push that part in, Be careful it's going to squirt gas, that's a good sign. If it does not, check your fuel filter. And last, if nothing above described works first check your negative wire on your fuel pump, second your injectors, they might be clogged.
    Best of luck, God Bless.
