There not bad to replace, but you do have to have a special tool to unhook the fuel lines to it. And there should be just one set of wires goin to it also. It should take you about 20 minutes to change. If you have the right tools to do it.

SOURCE: Fuel Pressure Regulator

All Fuel Pressure Regulators are usually attached to the Fuel Rail. In any case, they have a return line to the fuel tank. On your engine you may have to remove the pretty "Plastic Cover" that covers the top of the engine to see the fuel rail and the pressure regulator. Look for a "tube" that has fuel injectors going from the bottom of it and into the top of the intake manifold. The fuel pressure regulator is a round looking device attached to the end of the fuel rail with a small fuel line coming out the botttom and a vacuum line attached to the top of it. At least in most cases this is what it will look like.

SOURCE: replace fuel pump in 2000 buick leSabre3.8 v6

You should be able to replace the fuel pump through the trunk. Beneath the carpet in the trunk should be an access panel. Once you remove that panel, all the electrical connections and fuel lines can be disconnected. Remember to disconnect the negative battery cable prior to service, and to take necessary precautions in regards to fuel spillage that may occur. I hope this helps.

99 buick start easy then dies unless you give it gas. then stays running until you go to start again.


Check the fuel pressure regulator. It is on the drivers side, front of the engine near the throttle body. Remove the vacuum hose and see if fuel comes out of the nipple. If it does than the regulator needs to be replaced.

If the regulator is fine than you will need to check fuel pressure with a gauge. If fuel pressure drops as soon as you shut off the car than the fuel pump is likely bad.

Sounds like you have a bad fuel pressure regulator.First pull the vacuum hose off of the pressure regulator and look for fuel if any fuel runs out of it replace the regulator.Then if no fuel ran out, hook a fuel gauge to fuel rail and start engine and look at gauge reading and then pull the vacuum hose off and gauge reading should jump up 5-10 psi if it does'nt replace regulator.

99 lesabre getting hard to start even though it turns over fine. Problem seems to be worse after sitting over night. Smell gas after coming home from driving.


Check out the fuel filter, also look for a fuel leak in the manaflod area. When you go to start it, turn the key on for 10 seconds before you try to start the engine and then turn it over and see if it doesn't start easier. If the fuel pump is getting weak it gives it a chance to build up pressure.
