On a taurus the fuel pressure regulator is located on the return side of the fuel rail on the top of the engine. Its round, attached to the fuel rail and operated by vacuum.

    But its not we have been all over that motor and its not there. I have a 95 taurus also and it is but the 2000 isnt. Now auto Zone is telling me it is inside the fuel pump.? Anybody ever heard of this to be true? Napa sold us the regulator and never said anything about it.

How to check fuel pressure 91 geo storm gsi


1.6L DOHC (same way as the ISUZU impulse ) same car.
4XE1 engine twin cam.
has MPI injection with fuel rail, regulator and loop
disconnecting the feed line and stuffing it with guage only does 1 of 5 tests. done on MPI. it does JUST the shut test.
the correct way it to check it at the filter or rail tests ports on most cars.
in some cases you must add it.
they sell banjo fittings with test ports at summit racing dot com.
so the first question on all MPI cars, is , where is the stock fittings.
other cars the rail has a schrader valve or a plugged hole to add one. (test port) did you look first for this?
to test the FPR, unplug the vacuum line running
and pressure will jump up 6 to 10 psi.
this simulates wide open throttle pressure, a key fact in getting full power from engine, i test cranking presssure, idle, 3000rpm
and wot pressures to be sure the PFR is working, not just the pump.



the spec at the rail is.

Late 1986 to 1993 I-TEC MPFI system (after VIN 0908197)
Regulator vacuum line connected-36 psi
Regulator vacuum line disconnected-42.5 to 45 psi

the shunt test can hit 60 pis easy. do so for only 5sec.
as this stresses the pump .

the only rail drawing , shows no fittings (cheap buggers)



not even a cheap plug...

24024302-wtht4tipiqsxmsfaksxjx4vs-4-0.jpg below is the twin cam, 1.6L
buy a TEE feeting, and put it at upper, red arrow.
use clamps rated for fuel injection, not chezzy screw band clamps as seen on carb cars. use the correct parts.
or you will get leak and it will not be pretty,
the filter as at 14 ID. this is the pressure feed side of the loop.
30 to 60psi , so all parts must be rated over 60, psi, (100psi is a nice goal)

24024302-wtht4tipiqsxmsfaksxjx4vs-4-1.jpg

now the words directly from the IMPULSE FSM.

Testing
  1. Relieve the fuel pressure.
  2. Disconnect the fuel line near the engine and install fuel pressure gauge T-connector in the line.
  3. Connect the fuel pressure gauge to the T-connector.
  4. Start the engine and check the fuel pressure, it should be:
  5. 4XC1-Turbo and DOHC I-Mark, G200Z Impulse: 35.6 psi with the vacuum hose of the pressure regulator disconnected and plugged. 28.4 psi with the vacuum hose connected and at idle.
  6. 4ZC1-Turbo, 4ZD1 Impulse and 4ZE1 engine: 42.6 psi with the vacuum hose at the pressure regulator disconnected and plugged. 35.6 psi with the vacuum hose connected at idle. Disconnect the VSV before checking pressure.
  7. V6 engine: 9.13 psi at the fuel pressure line after the fuel filter.
  8. 4XE1 SOHC and DOHC engine: Flow test, disconnect the hose from the EFI fuel feed line at the engine and place in a suitable container. Apply battery voltage to the fuel pump. Pump should supply 1/4 quart (0.24L) within 15 seconds. Pressure test, connect a pressure gauge in the fuel pressure line after the fuel filter, located at the driver's side frame rail. Disconnect the vacuum hose from the pressure regulator. Apply battery voltage to the pump. After the pump stabilizes, the pressure should be 35-38 psi (245-256 kPa) and hold steady.

99 pontiac grand am se series 3400 liter motor i need to replace the water pump do you have to take the timing chain cover off to it looks like its all connected together


go to the library and get a book for your car with the motor you have in it.this should be a (sohc)single overhead cam motor and not the (dohc)dual overhead cam motor.the sohc motor the pump is located at the rad side of the motor and doesn`t need to have the timing cover removed.if it happens to be the dohc motor then your best to have a shop do the job as its not an easy job to do








this should be a (sohc)single overhead cam motor.this pump is located at the front of the motor towards the rad.thus you don`t remove the timing cover and easy to replace,once you remove the serpintine belt then the pulley on the pump then there are about 6 bolts that you remove to change the pump.if its the (dohc)motor i strongly suggest you have a shop do the job as its not an easy job to do and if you don`t get the timing belts timed exactly you will be sending the heads to the machine shop to repair.

I have looked at the front and back of the fuel rail of my 1994 sunbird and can not find it. What does it look like, give me a diagram of where it is located. It is fuel injected single overhead cam,...


I'm pretty sure that one uses the lower intake as the fuel rail. If that's the case than there is no schrader valve. You'll need to test for fuel pressure at the fuel filter by removing one of the lines from the filter and using adapters install a test hose inline and then attach your pressure gauge to that.

If the fuel pressure regulator attaches to the drivers side of the lower intake than you have this setup.

How do you change a fuel filter


All WJ models have two fuel filters, a strainer filter at the bottom of the fuel pump module inside the fuel tank and one exterior filter within the fuel pressure regulator. Both filters are designed for extended service. They do not require normal scheduled maintenance. Filters should only be replaced if a diagnostic procedure indicates to do so.

The combination fuel filter/pressure regulator is located in front of the fuel tank and above the rear axle. It is transversely mounted to a chassis crossmember (left-to-right). The filter/regulator is equipped with 3 fuel line fittings (2 at one end and 1 at the other end). The single fitting facing the left side of the vehicle is the supply line to the fuel rail. The 2 fittings facing the right side of the vehicle are connected to the fuel tank. Of these 2 fittings, the fitting towards the front is used for fuel return to the fuel tank. The fitting towards the rear is a pressure line.

Fig.: Fuel filter / regulator location


External filter/regulator removal
WARNING: THE FUEL SYSTEM IS UNDER A CONSTANT PRESSURE (EVEN WITH THE ENGINE OFF). BEFORE SERVICING ANY FUEL SYSTEM HOSES, FITTINGS OR LINES, THE FUEL SYSTEM PRESSURE MUST BE RELEASED.

1. Remove fuel fill cap.
2. Remove fuel pump relay from Power Distribution Center (PDC). For location of relay, refer to label on underside of PDC cover.
3. Start and run engine until it stalls.
4. Attempt restarting engine until it will no longer run.
5. Turn ignition key to OFF position.
6. Disconnect negative battery cable at battery.
7. Raise vehicle.
8. Clean area around 3 filter/regulator fittings.
9. Disconnect fuel supply, fuel return and fuel pressure lines at filter/regulator. Special tools may be required.
10. Remove 2 mounting bolts and remove filter/regulator.



External filter/regulator installation
1. Before installing filter/regulator, be sure all fittings are cleaned of all dirt and contaminants.
2. Be sure o-ring is positioned into fuel return fitting in filter/regulator.
3. Apply a small amount of clean engine oil to o-rings.
4. Position filter/regulator to body and install 2 bolts. Tighten bolts. Refer to Torque Specifications.
5. Connect 3 fittings.
6. Connect negative battery cable to battery.
7. Start engine and check for leaks.


Hope helps (remember rated this).
