Fuel rail leak

1999 Chevy Prizm Mechanic says I need to change the fuel pressure regulator. Leak is at the fuel rail. Is the pressure regulator located at the fuel tank on the 1999? Would that cause a leak at the fuel rail?

use the pressure test port on the top of the engine, it is on the fuel rail that supplies fuel to the injectors, looks like a tire valve, will have a plastic cap on it.

SOURCE: Fuel smell near the fuel tank

You may have an overloaded carbon cannister, the carbon cannister stores fuel vapors and is part of the evaporative emission control system, I will be willing to bet if you change it the smell will stop.

Use a fuel pressure gage, check for proper fuel pressure, key on engine off. Then with key off, see if pressure will hold for a bit? If the pressure drops like a rock, check for a fuel pressure leak, check for fuel injector leak and fuel pressure regulator leak. If fuel pressure regulator is connected to fuel rail and has a vacuum line, check to see if gas in the vacuum line, if so, pressure regulator is faulty.

Check for applicable trouble codes? How long since a tune-up?

Its a 1999 chevy tahoe. Changed fuel pump twice.


Could be the pressure regulator on the fuel rail. Pull the vacuum line off the regulator and check it for fuel contamination. There should not be gas in the line. If there is fuel in that line the regulator is bad and needs replaced.

Cold starting problem


you could have a couple differnet issues. cold start misfires, an intake air leak, poor compression with engine cold,or a fuel pressure issue with a leaking injector or fuel pressure is bleeding back due to a faulty pressure regulator. my recommendation is to buy a fuel pressure gauge and monitor pressure overnight. you could also pull the fuel rail and see if an injector is leaking at the same time. you can spray the intake system with a highly volitile liquid(with engine running) to see if idle speed changes to check for an air leak
