Fuel Pressure Regulator Replacement Service

What is the Fuel Pressure Regulator all about?

Cars need to run at a specific fuel pressure. The regulator controls the fuel pressure and returns any excess fuel to the tank. The regulator is important to ensure that the injectors operate properly. If the regulator malfunctions, it can cause the engine to flood. In extreme cases, a flooded engine can be a fire hazard.

You may see liquid on the floor near the exhaust pipe (raw gas dripping from the tail pipe). You may also notice black smoke when the engine is running (partially burnt gas produces black smoke). Not only will the car get poor gas mileage, it also may not pass an emissions test.

Fuel Pressure Regulator-MATROX-1

Keep in mind:

Some fuel regulators are located in the tank as part of the fuel pump assembly. If the fuel pressure regulator has gone bad, it can leak fuel in the engine, contaminating the engine oil.

How it's done:

  • Scan the computer system in the car for trouble codes.
  • Inspect fuel pressure regulator for leakage and proper operation.
  • Inspect for any broken vacuum lines.
  • Remove and replace fuel pressure regulator if it is bad.
  • Change the engine oil and filter if the oil is found to be contaminated.
  • Clear any diagnostic trouble codes.
  • Test drive the vehicle.

Our recommendation:

Any time that you notice something potentially wrong with your fuel system, you should schedule an inspection. There are many signs that a fuel pressure regulator is malfunctioning, and all should be taken seriously. If you notice that your car is getting poor mileage, has gas leaking, has black smog coming out of the exhaust, or isn’t running smoothly, contact a mechanic. A malfunctioning fuel pressure regulator will often illuminate the Check Engine warning light, which is always a sign to schedule an inspection.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Fuel Pressure Regulator?

  • Poor gas mileage.
  • Smell of gas in the engine compartment.
  • Fuel is leaking.
  • Black smoke coming out of the exhaust (tail pipe).
  • Failed emissions test.
  • Check engine light is on.

How important is this service?

When gas is sent from your gas tank to your engine, the fuel pressure regulator makes sure that the fuel pressure is optimal. The fuel pressure regulator is responsible for returning excess fuel to the gas tank, and making sure that the fuel injectors get the perfect fuel pressure. When the regulator malfunctions, the fuel pressure will not be controlled, and your engine will not run optimally. Your engine will also be at risk for fuel flooding, which can result in serious damage and even fire.

Hi my car jerks while accelerating and cruising but most of the things that I’ve seen mentioned for the problem has been fixed already. Also my check engine light doesn’t come on to say the problem. My car is at 199,500 miles it’s a 2006 Nissan Sentra

I have been having with my Jeep not starting. A friend tried to jump start it but nothing would happen. The dome light worked however the horn did not. Tried a different vehicle and jumper cables and the Jeep cranked. Ran fine the rest of the day and the next day. This morning my Jeep started fine. I drove to the gas station, came back out and it would not start. Had the same issues trying to jump start it. Napa Auto Parts walked over and tested the battery which read 12.6 volts, the Napa guy was able to start my Jeep with a jumper box. He said the alternator was good too. When leaving to drive my Jeep home, several lights in the dash were flashing, the radio would not work and the speedometer would not work. Got home and let the my Jeep run idle for 20 minutes, then it just died. The Jeep set for several hours while I was at work. I got home and tested the battery with a multimeter and it read 12.6 volts. Tried starting it and it would not do anything. Four hours later, I wanted to go outside to see if my headlights were working turned them on and they were. I thought let me try and start it. The Jeep started right up with no issue. Could this be a bad battery even though it is showing 12.6 volts, the Napa guy did say the CCA were low but the battery was good. Would a faulty crankshaft cause issue that would mimic a bad battery, alternator or starter? I'm at a loss and don't want to waste money buying a battery if it is something else.
