: Which Fuel Pressure Regulator?

On rockauto.com it lists 3 differant part numbers for fuel pressure regulators. One says "1st design; used with nylon fuel rail" and the other says used with stainless steel fuel rail. The other doesn't say which. I just got the stainless steel rail today, but I thought they put the old FPR on it? In fact I know they did...

So what's the deal with there being 2?

Also, I pulled the vacuum line before I took the FPR off and it was leaking a little bit. Then when I put it back on and secured the clip again it didn't seem to leak. Shouldn't it either leak or not leak?

This is what mine looks like.

If it was leaking, Dave, it probably needs to be replaced.

you idle the engine, and pull the vacuum line off... it's supposed to be leak-free. (And I heard the hissing from the vacuum line).

If you need a good place to get the part, I know a place... PM me. They may even help you get the right one.
