4.3l. Where is fuel pressure regulator?


The fuel pressure regulator is on the fuel rail. There is a vacuum hose and a electrical connector on it. Also you'll find a fitting to connect a pressure gauge to it.

98 gmc jimm 4x4 4.3l v6 replaced plugs, wires and distributor cap and rotor. Still getting P0304 code and rough idle. Higher rpms flatten out roughness but take off feels off. Any help??


spray carb/choke cleaner all around intake gasket mating surface on heads. (while motor is running) If rpms change you have a bad intake gasket.

In need to change the fuel pressure regulator but I need to know where a 4.3l engine


The fuel pressure regulator is mounted inside the intake plenum. You'll have to take the top half of the intake plenum off and replace the fuel injection spider.

In a 92 GMC Jimmy, Where is the Fuel Pressure regulator?


If this is the 4.3 liter the fuel pressure regulator is located in the intake valley. You will need to remove the upper half of the intake manifold, once removed you will see a small round regulator located at on end of the injector line.

I have fuel in the oil


Sounds like a top end repair of seals or a piston ring issue, or the intake manifold gaskets are leaking. With the age of the vehicle you may be able to go with the intake gasket first but if its the heads then you have to do it twice, and if its the rings allowing blow by you would have to take the heads off anyway. Just be careful so you get it narrowed down quick and easy check compression to see about blowby and the head may help.

How to replace spider regulator on a 1999 gmc jimmy


This fuel pressure regulator is a component part of the SFI (sequential fuel injection) assembly, sometimes referred to as "spider". It resides inside of the air intake plenum and is accessed by removing the upper half of the intake. 
Good luck and hope this helps. 
Most of the time when your having problems, it's most likely going to be the whole spider unit. GM has been know to have problems with this type of fuel injection system. 
Check the vacum line to the fuel pressure regulator at the back of the spider housing by the high pressure fuel line. You can see it just in front of the distributor cap and spider assembly.

2000 gmc jimmy wont start fuel pump comes on and cuts off but will not start.I have changed the fuel filter and that did not work. Is the pump not building the pressure it needs to start or would my...


the fuel pressure if leaking could cause this the regulator is located under the intake plenum but you should smell gas .if you dont then most likely the pump is bad ,the pump will come on for 2 seconds when the key is on then go off it will not stay on with just the key on only when you crank it will it .so have your fuel pressure checked with a gauge.

It's on your fuel injection rail BELOW the upper intake manifold. The upper intake manifold MUST come off first.
