Check regulator suitability or perhaps the regulator is faulty.

SOURCE: fuel pressure regulator

unfotunately all of the throttle body and sometimes the intake has to be removed to do this, what is really great (just kidding) is you also have to remove these things to replace a $2.98 PCV valve, because the fitting for the top of the valve butts up against the top of the intake, so BE SURE to do that at the same time, just a tip..

SOURCE: Fuel Pressure Regulator Leaking

make sure engine is turned off, unplug the hose slowly and make sure there is no fuel pressure, you will have a little bit of gas leak but not much. Unlossen the bolt with torx head bit screw driver or driver, pull it off all the way. Once you got that one bolt off, push down on the locking clip that attaches your fuel regulator to manifold. Twist off the old pressure regulator and then install the new one in. Make sure you check the box your regulator came in, and look for the packaged o-ring. Its that simple. I just replaced mine in my 2001 alero, took more time analyzing how to pull the old one off. Hope this will help you.

SOURCE: change fuel filter on 1995 olds aurora

Hi, here is a step by step guide that will help you with the replacement of your fuel filter.

Step1 Put on your protective glasses and gather your tools. An assortment of wrenches and screwdrivers are necessary. The ones you use will depend upon the vehicle. Step2 Elevate the vehicle. This can be done by using a jack and jack stands, or drive-up ramps. Do not rely solely on a single jack, as this is very dangerous. Step3 Find the fuel filter. The location varies from vehicle to vehicle. It’s a safe bet to start your search near the fuel tank under the body. You can also reference your owner’s manual or call your local dealership. Step4 Remove the protective covering that guards the fuel filter. Most filters have some kind of plastic covering over them to prevent damage, and can be removed by a common wrench, hex wrench, or screwdriver. Step5 Remove the fuel lines attached to the fuel filter. There are a number of ways these hoses might be linked to the pump, such as links, brackets or clips. Use either a screwdriver or wrench, whichever the attachments require. Step6 Cap the fuel lines with a pencil or golf tee, and keep them tilted toward the drainage canister. Step7 Remove the fuel filter from the assembly, noting which way it was oriented. An arrow will likely be on the filter. It should be pointed toward the engine, and away from the fuel tank. Step8 Install you new fuel filter. Be sure that it is oriented so the fuel arrow points toward the engine. Step9 Reattach the hoses and guard.


-WARNING-




  • Do not over-tighten the fuel filter. Tighten to hand-strength, and let it be. Over-tightening can cause damage and fuel leakage.
  • Change your fuel filter approximately every 10 or 15 thousand miles, but more frequently if you often drive gravel or dirt roads. Vehicles older than 10 years might have rusty fuel tanks, which also contributes to clogging.
  • A new fuel filter is cheaper than a busted fuel pump, which is one of the more serious consequences of a severely clogged fuel filter.
  • Sometimes special tools are required to remove the Ford fuel lines and filters. Ford provides these tools with your vehicle or upon request.
  • Make sure that the engine is cool. Any heat could spark a fire.
  • Be sure that the car is secure before venturing underneath. Use a jack and jack stands, or drive-up ramps. Give the car a few nudges to Be sure it will not collapse.
  • Never smoke or light matches when changing a fuel filter.
Please rate and god bless:)

I found out that my 2001 blazer had no gasket in it replace them but still smelling gas and it making noise what ekse could it be I need help


If you are smelling gas it is because you are getting excess fuel somewhere
Most likely it is the fuel injection unit or the fuel pressure regulator inside the intake plenium on top of the motor there is a shrader valve on top on drivers side of air intake on the fuel lines have someone pressure test the fuel pressure when you turn the key on and off three or more times to prime the pressure then turn the key off and watch the gauge while priming pressure the pressure should be 60 psi then after priming pressure and turning key off pressure should drop to 55psi and hold that pressure for 5 minutes minimum if it does not hold that pressure and starts dropping to zero your fuel injection unit and pressure regulator are leaking and dumping excess gas into the air intake plenium and it is easier to replace the injection unit and the pressure regulator as you can buy them cheaper combined a new injection unit comes with the new fuel pressure regulator
And if they are leaking gasoline after a failed pressure test that is why you are smelling gasoline
Have it pressure tested right away as if this indeed is the cause the excess fuel could combust at one point and cause a lot more damage
A pressure tester can be purchased at advanced auto for around 35 or any reputable garage can pressure test it in front of you in 5 minutes it's easy

Classic 2001 Aurora problems!1) I have found the oil pressure light comes on intermittently as well. Check the oil quality and level. On mine I have not needed to do anything else.
2) If your willing, this is a relatively inexpensive repair...http://aurorah.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=nextgeneration&action=display&thread=5353&page=2

I have a 2001 Olds Aurora w/ the 4.0L V8. I have started picking up a rough idle...and then get a P0174 and/or P0171. I have cleaned the MAF sensor and replaced the air filter. This has been going...


The codes are stating a lean condition (not enough gas to air) so the MAF could be a good start if its reading too much air but now you need to start eliminating other issues. Did you unplug the battery for at least a min to allow the computer to reset and start learning the air/fuel ratio of the new MAF? You can also look in to the fuel filter, low fuel pressure from a weak pump, the rail line could be pinched, bad injectors, fuel pressure regulator or even the ECU needing reflashed/replaced. Lots of variables that can't be checked over the net but start with fuel pressure.

Have 100,000 miles on Passat. check engine light keeps coming on. Had fuel filter changed, throttle plate, but engine light back on. Now they think it may be fuel regulator near manifold. Car runs...


Have the PCM scanned, you are about due for a timing belt replacement. If it shows camshaft or crankshaft corralation error them you need to replace it very soon.

I have a 1996 Olds Aurora...it turns over, but takes longer then normal to start. It's like it doesn't catch right away. If it was the starter or starter relay connecters then it wouldn't turn over at all....


maybe the fuel pressure regulator bleeding down while parked. Take a fuel pressure tester and hook it up, cycle key to gain optimal fuel pressure, turn key off and monitor fuel pressure. It should hold at around 20 psi.

Car misfiring ,excessive gas consumption


A very common for these problems is a leaking fuel pressure regulator. This leaks gas and causes extended crank times, stalling, and check engine light.
