Q: Where is the fuel pressure regulator located at

Where is the fuel pressure regulator located at
My car's transmission is unknown to me.

The regulator is below the upper intake manifold assembly. There are quite a few steps involved and exceptional care has to be taken during replacement to ensure that there are no leaks on re-assembly. If the car has over 150,000 miles, and you have to replace the regulator, consider removing all the fuel injectors and sending them out to an injector reconditioning lab for ultrasonic cleaning and filter replacement. Mr. Injector is one such service. A certified technician from YourMechanic can replace the fuel pressure regulator during a mobile visit and assist you, too, if you desire to have the fuel injectors serviced at the same time.
