Daaaang, that regulator is expensive... 50 bucks, I wonder if we can refurb these things since everyone on the forum seems to be replacing them.

At the junk yard I've found several that will work from 90s Chrysler mini vans. If they have fuel In them when you pull them, usually they are good. It's when they dry out that they go bad. Worth a shot if you think it's worth your time and the $2 entry fee.

I read through the threads and look at what was posted. There are a bunch of knowledgeable peeps here and I don't see any reason to try and reiterate the same thing. Thumbs up.

I have never had good luck in the pick a parts around me. They either dont carry the vehicles I am looking for or they are ridicuosly expensive for what you do get. I think I will just suck it up and buy a new FPR from napa. Is there any brand I should look for or stay away from?

NAPA should have a good part for it. No brands to stay away from come to mind on FPR. My pick-a-parts are chock full o' minivans. One day, I went around and pulled 5 FPR off 90s chrysler minivans. Paid $1 each for em. Needed one for YJ i was refurbishing for sale. 2 were bad, 3 were good - a big plus is that you can get the vacuum line as well. It's a little longer than the YJ, but same fittings and works just as good.

$50 is worth it if you get your car back on the road. Just hoping you're not going to have to replace the cat after driving rich for so long...

Ok I replaced my fuel pressure regulator. I am now runing at 34-35 LBS and I did another leak down test and lost 1-2 LBS over 30 minutes.

still a tad high but way better.

I wonder if your return fuel line is a bit obstructed.

Another possibility: some people seem to have trouble with their fuel return line touching the bottom of the fuel tank slightly increasing their idle pressure.

I also wonder if this is enough to lean you out for your inspection. What does it cost to run the test out in CA?

its $40-$50 per run. Every now and then you can find a shop that will discount additional runs if you keep failing the tests.
