SOURCE: Where is the fuel pressure regulator on a 2003 oldsmobile alero?

There are 2 fuel lines connecting to the fuel injector rail. The larger line is the pressure line and the smaller line is the return line. The smaller line attaches to the fuel pressure regulator. You will notice that the regulator also has a vacuum line attached to it. If you are planning on changing it your self, let me know. There is a specific way to change it for safety reasons.
Let me know.
Regards,

SOURCE: what happens when the fuel pressure regulator goes bad?

The motor more than likely won't start or it could flood out with gas.
Fuel pressure regulator controls fuel pressure. You should have 30psi at the fuel rail for the motor to start.

SOURCE: 1996 Ford F-350 460 gas engine. Stalls while going

I'd check the manual transfer valve on the dash. They have a tendency to go bad after awhile. Cause 1000 different symptoms, and be the last thing checked/replaced. It's probably the cheapest place to start. The pump under the driver's feet is usually the last one to go in my experience, but the secondary culprit is normally the main pump in the rear tank.

Next time it tries to stall, toggle the fuel switch and see what happens. Same with a hard start. Back and forth a few times quickly.

Hope this helps.

low fuel pressure can be caused by fuel pump or pressure regulator. The regulator is on the upper side of the engine and looks like picture below. Check the vacuum hose all the way to see if it has a loose or broken connection. The regulator is much easier to replace that the pump, so I always recommend one replace the regulator before the pump. If you know someone that can check the fuel pressure before the regulator, you can actually determine which part is bad.

Have a 2005 f150 4.6 that stalls can it be the fuel pump is weak


Could be a fuel pressure regulator not working. Thus ecu complaining about fuel Pressure. probably not enough because the regulator is worn and leaking down so will not maintain the proper pressure. You will need to google the make model and fuel pressure regulator to find it's location or library and repair manual. Otherwise, you need to measure the pressure and find the spec for the required fuel pressure. Probably somewhere around 120PSI

You need to have a fuel pressure test run to verify if the pump is actually putting out the correct pressure. If it has never been replaced then I would suspect it is defective on a 17 year old vehicle.

Ford f150 2003 - engine stalls during start-up, only stays on if gas pedal is pressed during start.


It sounds like it is getting too much fuel. Holding down the gas does the opposite of what you may think, it shuts the fuel flow off on fuel injected cars. You may have a leaking fuel injector or a bad fuel pressure regulator.
