Look at your fuel rale. At the end of the fule rale is where the fuel pressure reg, is located. It should have a vacuume hose it it also. It should be about 2 inches round and about and inch thick.

    So sorry, it is back near the rear tire under the car. Just in back of the fuel tank. You can see it if you put ya car on a set of ramps. Just infrount of the rear ex. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: fuel pressure regulator had no vacuum line connected

another engineers wet dream. think of it this way . what is normally in the intake when the engine is running.. answer vacume, hence the regulator gets its vacume without a hose connected to it as its already in a full time vacume hose required . ps be carefull to seat the regulator and o rings securely into the housing befor you reattach the secureing metal clip.
good luck chris

2008 cobalt cranks but won't start

If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check for a fuel injector pulse.
Can you check for applicable trouble codes? You need an obd2 code reader, at the least, to check codes.

What is the fuel pressure specs on a Chevy cobalt 2.2 ecotec 2009

I don't know the exact pressure but 55 psi sounds good to me. Most ordinary passenger cars run at about 2 bar with something like a 5 psi increase for acceleration.
A pressure test isn't a lot of use on its own as it is possible it can provide the pressure when no demands are placed on the engine but not deliver the volume of fuel needed when demands are made. A peak pressure test and a flow test would ensure the fuel system is good.

I am wondering if the egr valve is on the same side as the lean bank? Dodgy egr valves are a big cause of bad running.
