1990 Chevy Camaro 2.8 v-6 fuel problem?

I have a 1990 Chevy Camaro 2.8 v-6, and replaced the Fuel pressure regulator, and only way it will run is if i spray carb cleaner in the intake and keep pumping the gas. if i release my foot it dies, but if i keep pumping it i will run kinda, sounds like a fuel problem.

do you mean the pressure relief valve, this is located normally on the low pressure or return side of your fuel rail, this is designed to maintain fuel pressure in your fuel rail constant, e.g. steady running requires steady pressure, acceleration requires increased pressure controled by engine vacuum, if it was on the supply line you can not regulate the pressure supplied to the injecters. stopped engine requires no pressure so the pump gets turned off with the ignitionf

Car ships replaced wires plugs o2 sencer sometimes acts like it is flooding run fine on open road.


If it acts like it is flooding while idling, but it runs fine on the road, it could be running too rich and flooding it out due to leaking injectors, bad fuel pressure regulator, or excessive fuel pressure.

I would start by replacing the Fuel Pressure Regulator since it doesn't cost as much as the injectors.
Check your fuel pressure using a Fuel Pressure Check Gauge to see if the fuel pressure regulator is maintaining the proper pressure.

Vacuum is attached to the Fuel Pressure Regulator to control system pressure. When the fuel pressure regulator is not functioning properly it causes the fuel pressure to be above normal operating pressure. This condition causes excess fuel to be injected causing a rich mixture that produces black smoke.

1988 chevy camaro 2.8 liter multy port fuel injecton I recenly replaced the fuel pressure regulator, but the car is still running rich, idle surging, and misfire. I appriciate your help>


check you oxygen sensor. check the timing catilitic converters could be pluged now too. running rich can be a cause from that also an efect of running rich if theres another problem. check everything else before replacing the cats becausethey arnt cheap and if ist still running rich it will burn them out. also check the firing order if its real bad u may have one switched. that will cause the cats to glow and burn out.

Check the fuel pressure regulator for signs of leaking raw fuel into the vacuum line. Ethanol eats up these diaphrams.
