First things first...The fuel is in the oil because the fuel is not being burnt in those cylinders and fuel washing the rings allowing it to bypass the oil and compression rings. You really need to check the compression on all the cylinders first. If your not sure how to so this with fuel washed cylinders just e-mail me and i will go into detail on this crucial step..good luck,

2008 Chrysler 300 2.7 fuel pressure regulator location

Hey Londell,
Hope this helps..tThis vehicle uses a saddle type tank a reservoir on both sides of the rear drive shaft. The fuel pump is in the module on the driver side of the vehicle and the fuel pressure regulator is in the module on the passenger side of vehicle. The fuel outlet is on the passenger side and supplies fuel to the engine. The fitting on the fuel pump module (Driver side) is a vapor line fitting that connects to the passenger side module. Both modules have fuel level sending cards. There are 2 hoses that connect the modules together one is the fuel supply line the other is a return or siphon hose. The lines are removed from the fuel pump module when servicing either unit. The ORVR (Onboard Refueling Vapor Recovery) control valve is in the passenger side module.

2000 5.3 tahoe gas in oil

Fuel injector problem , leaking fuel pressure regulator ,

Causes of gas in oil
On my 94 Chevy blazer, gas in the oil was caused by a ruptured diaphragm in the fuel pressure regulator that is attached to the fuel injector. Flooding the engine. An over abundance of gas in your cylinders will wash down your cylinder walls and accumulate in the oil pan.

1990 buick century limited/ v-6 engine has fuel in the oil. need a fix.

could be a bad fuel pressure regulator. if they do fail, then it may result in low pressure. Mostly, the diaphragm in the fuel pressure regulator develops a leakage and the fuel enters the vacuum hose. This may lead to various kinds of troubles in the engine. Signs of a Bad Fuel Pressure Regulator
  • The vehicle engine runs rough and often stumbles and sputters.
  • The engine will not start after ignition. Usually, this problem is encountered in the morning when you start your vehicle. Many times, the engine starts, but stalls shortly after starting.
  • The fuel pump in the vehicle becomes noisy at times.
  • A bad fuel pressure regulator can also result in fouled spark plugs.
  • Last but not the least, the fuel mileage of the engine decreases noticeably. if above signs appear, replace fuel regulator. Check the oil dipstick and see if you smell fuel on it. If you do, it could be a symptom of a bad fuel regulator. The regulator has allowed gasoline to leak into the oil system.

2000 Ford Mustang v6. Ran great,all of a sudden on excelleration it started to sputter and shake. Just had fuel injection maintanace done. oil is clear, all fluids checked out good. no noise just acts like...

If you are trying to do this yourself, there are a few things to check. If the engine runs at all, then you still have a working fuelpump. If it does not start, there is a part called an Inertia switch which shuts off gasflow. This switch can be in the trunk on the drivers side or inside by the kickpanel next to the clutch or even on the passengers side kickpanel. It varies by Year model and equipment. There is a reset button and it needs to be pushed down.

If you paid someone to clean the Injectors, and you now have gasflow problems have them recheck their work. You deserve more than a receipt and a broken car. They should work out something with the towing.

It is possible to have debris in the fuelpump Regulator, and depending on where the chemicals were introduced, the Regulator could be affected by the chemicals. Also if you serviced the Injectors, a new fuel filter would make sense. While installing a replacement, a fuel sample could be taken.

I hope my solutions are very useful to you.

your fuel pressure is too have a faulty fuel pressure regulator or a bad computer (ECM/ECU). This is a serious problem due to the fact that the excess fuel is dripping into your engine oil. Get the fuel problem fixed and immediately change the oil and filter. If you do not do this, the thin oil will cause a loss in viscosity (lubrcation) and the engine will lock up/throw a rod. Good luck...

Probably motor and regulator, if you tried both switches on driver and passenger side suspect both window motor and regulator on passenger side sometimes while pressing the switch on the passenger side bang on the door panel inside and sometimes it may move if it does then suspect only the window motor.

Do you know how check if every cilinder is working? with the engine in idle, go to the distribuitor cap and carefully unplug one at the time, every cilinder spark plug wire,in the cilinder you dont see a diference in rpm variation, that cilinder is not working, replace spark plug, if you see spark jumping fron the distribuitor cap torch the spark plug wire, another cause to a cilinder fail could be a loss of compression in one or more cilinder
