You mention no check engine light, and all the work you've done leave one solution; Your catalytic converter is clogged.

When you replace you catalytic converter your issues will cease. This is a very common problem, and a simple fix.

I hope this information helps and I wish you luck with your repair.

SOURCE: 1997 astro 4.3 vortec v6 fuel pressure problem.

have you made shure there is fuel in the tank, they had alot of problems wth sending units on that year. if so chances are its the fuel pump. try banging on the bottom of the fuel tank while sombody tries to start the vehicle, if it starts replace fuel pump. faulty regulators will usually cause a very rich running condition.

No, low fuel pressure is caused by a weak fuel pump.
High fuel pressure is caused by a faulty fuel regulator.

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.

SOURCE: fuel pump location 1988 ford econoline

Theres 2 pumps one in the tank, lift pump, and one in the chassis rail under the driver side. The one in the tank is cheap, the one in the rail is not. The one in the tank only produces low pressure to prime the main pump and if it is broken, may not cause that much of an issue except when starting. the one in the rail is a no-start if it fails. The idea is that the rail pump can supply high pressure for the injectors, so a fuel pressure test at the injector rail will determine which pump is playing up. Hope that helps Tim

Where is the fuel pressure regulator located on a 1988 Dodge B-150 van, 5.2 liter? I've been told it's on the fuel rail. Where is the fuel rail?


If you have throttle-body fuel injection, you don't have a fuel rail. The fuel pressure regulator should be mounted to throttle body.

It could clog injectors and mess with regulator. I would start by replacing fuel filter and regulator and see if it fires up then. Do this and let me know.

1988 ford ranger fuel pumps both come on for 2 seconds and go off.\r\nevery time i turn the key this happens. can i wire the pumps to a hot wire whenever the key is on they will run?


the pumps should run for a couple of seconds then shut off when the regulator determines the fuel pressure is correct. If you wire it, it will probably shorten the life of the regulator since pressure will constantly be applied to the regulator.

Hi i have a 1988 ford f150 it idles up and down and always smells like gas also when you floor it or tap the gas after idling for a while black smoke comes out the tail pipes. i'm so sick of it running...


Check fuel pressure regulator by removing the vacuum hose. If idle does not change or fuel comes out of regulator replace it. Otherwise check your injectors one at a time while car is running. If idle does not change replace it.

Fuel Problem


fuel pressure regulator? This diverts excess pressure from the rail back to the tank. When they wear out they usually stay stuck open thus diverting all pressure back to the tank. Pressure tests do not reveal this as pressure is checked before the rail not in it. I do believe you have a bad fuel regulator. They are 75US ouch.
