Question about Cars & Trucks
Tried to find out any info about this part. I can't find a picture or diagram of this part.
This part you describe is the fuel pressure regulator. If your car is working well, and you have a leak hear , you may only need a seal or gasket. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your response. I don't believe this is a fuel pressure regulator. According to the Haynes manual I have the fuel pressure regulator is in the tank as part of the fuel pump module. This is a returnless system, meaning there is no line going to the tank to return excess fuel from a regulator. The pressure is bled off in the tank by the regulator. I found a diagram of the fuel rail here. http://www.moparpartsoverstock.com/showAssembly.aspx?ukey_assembly=904556&ukey_make=1095&ukey_model=15980&modelYear=2001&ukey_category=23324&ukey_driveLine=8976&ukey_trimLevel=20251 It does not show the "hat" part that's on my fuel rail. Everything else is identical."

so i just replaced my water pump today on the same car, mine is a 5.9 magnum. I drained the whole system before i started working on it, next you have to take off the fan, if you look on the inner side of the fan there is a big nut there, in order to loosen that i put to bolts into the holes on the water pump pulley and used a thin screwdriver for leverage, while putting pressure on that, i loosened the nut, be careful not to slip cuz those fan blades are dangerous. but once you have removed that nut from the pulley take out the four bolts holding on the housing, pull the fan and the housing out at the same time. next remove the belt, after that is done, disconnect the hoses from the water pump, there are three, one on each side and one on top. there are a total of eight bolts holding the pump on, keep track of them because they are different sizes. But that is how i removed mine. It was all farely simple i am a girl and i managed to do it so i think you should be fine. Hope it works for you becuase it didnt work for me, i now think that it is my head leaking, if you know anything about that let me know.

I did this job on my 3.1 about 2 months ago and i forgot to put the ("O") ring on back fuel rail. had a fuel mess!! had to tear down plenum to fix, in my case i lost the o ring on rail and forgot to put 1 on. I had to order 1 from chevy garage, and replaced it. cost 9.00 just for 1 little o ring. mine fit tight also!! see if o ring is ok, and check line. car runs fine!!

fuel pump check valve doesn't cause pressure loss, just hard starting cold, the check valve is part of the fuel pump, so to replace the valve u must replace the pump. do not use anything but the orig style pump, here is the part number from THE OE PUMP MAKER AT www.rockauto.com
DELPHI Part # FE0071 PRICE $124.99

SOURCE: Fuel injectors leak at fuel rail
Get some new O-rings, and this time put oil on them before you insert them into the fuel rail. The regulator is alright.The problem is that the o-rings can roll up, or twist when push em in dry. Had this problem once, easy fix, but was frustrating.
