Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks
Have you checked your air filter ? It may be dirty or some section of your air intake tubes clogged. This may be why it run when you disconnect a vacuum line.
As for your fuel pressure regulator matter, as long as there is fuel going to the rail and injectors, it may continue to run.
If you can add more detail information of your problem and what have you done in the form of diagnosis, it would help.

another engineers wet dream. think of it this way . what is normally in the intake when the engine is running.. answer vacume, hence the regulator gets its vacume without a hose connected to it as its already in a full time vacume chamber.no hose required . ps be carefull to seat the regulator and o rings securely into the housing befor you reattach the secureing metal clip.
good luck chris

If you have fuel on the vacuum side of the reg, that means the reg is leaking,causing a variaty of drivabiliy problems. Replacing this reg is very straight forward. Just add a little lube to the O-ring on the reg before installation. Good luck.

Was there a hose on the old one? If not, you don't have one. It is most likely your fuel pump if you are not getting fuel.

SOURCE: vacuum lines
Hello, I have the 1993 Ford Festiva shop manual in front of me. The vacuum hose on the Fuel Pressure Regulator goes to the intake manifold. The manual says that the fuel pressure is maintained at a constant 36.3 psi, and when the engine vacuum drops (caused by high fuel demand) it causes the fuel pressure to increase inside the regulator. There should be a vacuum diagram on the bottom side of the hood that will help to show you what vacuum port on the manifold that it attaches to. If the decal is gone, look on the intake manifold for a vacuum port that is open and causing a vacuum leak. I hope this helps.
