Fuel Pressure Regulator

The fuel pressure regulator is leaking on my wife's 2000 Windstar 3.8 engine. How do I remove the regulator? I have the part on the way, just cant see how the old one comes off.

Re: Fuel Pressure Regulator

Thanks for the reply Bert bu I found out afterwards how to remove the fuel pressure regulator and its not how the regulator comes it, its actually a snap ring. What I also found out is that it wasnt the regulator thats leaking, its the line from the base where the regulator mounts into and runs back to the fuel rail.

Re: Fuel Pressure Regulator

Some have snap rings and some bolt on but glad to hear that you found it and fixed it. Thanks for the update.

Re: Fuel Pressure Regulator

Well I did figure out now I just need to find one at a junk yard, no longer available from Ford or Advance Auto, Autozone, etc. Need to get it fixed before the Mrs. can drive it again. Spraying fuel like a garden hose with a hole in it.

Re: Fuel Pressure Regulator

Check Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market for used but Rock Auto has them.

Re: Fuel Pressure Regulator

So I have located a couple places that have the fuel rail, how much time am I looking at doing this in the driveway myself?

Re: Fuel Pressure Regulator

Hard to say how long. I've done that type of work for a living so I'd be way off. If you're changing the whole rail, it would take a lot longer. I'd get a new one from Rock Auto. Check Autozones sit for a newer van and see if it shows more detail to your type of sensor.
