Question about 2000 Chevrolet Venture

1 Answer

My 2000 Venture van just recently started having a strong gas smell. There is no leaking on the cement driveway. We have stopped driving for now until we find out what is wrong. The tank is about 1/3 full right now.

It's common for the fuel pressure regulator has gone bad and will need to be replaced. It take's about 15 min to replace with common tools, if there is an Auto Zone around your area. You can buy the fuel pressure regulator there and that can give you the step bu step instructions to get the job done with common tools, just make sure you oil the O-rings to the regulator before installing it back to the fuel injector rails. The fuel pressure regulator is on the fuel injector rail buy the throttle body, you can see it. It looks like a cylinder about an inch in diameter and 1 1/2 inches long with a vacuum tube connected to it. Inspect it for any signs of fuel leak. Good luck and keep me posted.
