4338Re: [bmw e28] Fuel preasure regulator
- Apr 14, 2006Hello all,
I know this is a bit off topic of any thing that
is being talked about right now but I am a but excited ;-).
For the longest time I have been having idle problem to one degree or
another and a big problem of loosing fuel preasure over night and the car
having to build up preasure in the morning.
Well I wasted a lot of time and money of cold start valves, idle controls
Etc. and even a new fuel pump. Well...the problem seamed to be the fuel
preasure regulaor valve.
I hope to save others the time I lost :-).
If you have any of the problems I did and you have an ORIGINAL fuel
regulator (you can tell because 1.) its not painted shiny black and 2.) the
end of the part number is lower then the new ones) REPLACE it they are
fairly cheap for a brand new one and 8 year old kid could install it them
selfs. If works with springs and a other parts that can fail ove the years
so if its original what mess with keepings it. Heck the new ones look a lot
nicer if you keep your engine really clean.
If you install one I have a few hints 1.) when removing make sure you have
all the hoses from it removed 2.) when unbolted ;-) move it side to side
while pulling up HARD 2.) when reinstalling use a good amount of fuel all
over the O-ring to lubricate it or you will be there all night trying to get
it on the fuel rail(GRIN).
Best of luck,
