I saw the same thing. Strangely, there are 2 Delco FPRs but only one from Standard Motor Products. The plot thickens... I can tell you that I bought one of the AC-Delcos for the SS rail for my car and it was identical to the one I removed. If they replaced the FPR when I had the recall done, that new FPR sure didn't last long. None of this proves anything, of course, so I'll just shut up now.Ranger said:Hmm, that is strange. I would swear that it looked different on my '97 Deville before and after the fuel rail change. Curiosity got the best of me and I checked gmpartsdirect, no help. I then checked rockauto and for a '97 Deville they list two different FPR's. One is for the nylon rail and the other is for the stainless steel rail. Both AC Delco and different part numbers as well as price. Don't know what to say at this point.
I was quoted $135 to replace the FPR, my cost over the counter was like $35...now thats ridiculous.davesdeville said:I specifically asked the tech who did the recall work on my ETC if they replaced the FPR, and he said no and offered to do so for a redonkulous price. I should've asked if they'd just let me have the rail and replace it myself, it would've taken 1/2 as long.
Where did you read that on the unit? I don't remember seeing anything like that on my FPR when I was looking at it, but of course it could be there and I could've just missed it.eldorado1 said:Well I found a different FPR today. Not sure what year it's off of (it is 96-99), but unlike my 95, it's apparently regulated at a different pressure. My FPR reads "44psi" and lists a part number. The new one reads "51psi" and lists a different part number. I wonder if that has anything to do with it??
I can get both part #s if you guys are interested....
