Frequently asked questions about fuel pressure regulator replacement & repairs
Read our answers to questions about fuel pressure regulator replacement costs, symptoms and more.
What does a Fuel Pressure Regulator do?
The fuel pressure regulator regulates the pressure under which the fuel is injected into the engine as well as the amount of fuel that is injected. The regulator ensures a steady supply of fuel under a constant pressure to the engine's fuel injectors.
What does a fuel pressure regulator replacement involve?
- Mechanic will read the ECU for possible fault codes related to the fuel system.
- Mechanic will inspect the fuel supply system and the fuel pressure regulator.
- If necessary, the mechanic will replace the faulty fuel pressure regulator.
- Mechanic will advise if any other parts need to be replaced (like the oil filter, if it has been affected by the fuel).
- Mechanic will inspect the fuel supply system again for any leaks and test drive the car.
- Mechanic will make adjustments if necessary.
Can I do a fuel pressure regulator replacement myself?
Unless you are a qualified mechanic with the required skills, training and equipment to do the job, we strongly recommend a fuel pressure regulator replacement is only carried out by a professional mechanic. ClickMechanic can help get you a vetted and local mechanic to carry out the work. Just enter your postcode and your car's registration number at the top of this page and select the work needed to get an instant fixed price up front.
What happens when a fuel sensor goes bad?
- When the engine runs rough.
- When there is fuel leaking out of the regulator.
- When there is a strong smell of fuel in the engine bay.
- When the 'Check Engine' light on the car's dashboard is on.
- When the car doesn't perform as well as usual.
- When there is black smoke coming from the exhaust.
- When the car fails an emissions examination.
- When the car's fuel consumption is higher than usual.
How long will a fuel pressure regulator replacement take?
A fuel pressure regulator replacement usually takes around 1 hour, but can take less or more time. Ultimately, the time that the job will take will depend on a number of factors, like your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.
How often should I replace a fuel pressure regulator?
When the regulator does not work correctly the fuel pressure to the engine will be off. Either pushing too much fuel towards the engine or too little. This can, for example, lead to an engine that runs too rich, leading to poor fuel consumption.
In extreme cases leaks in the regulator can cause the engine's cylinders to flood by an excess of fuel. In turn it also contaminates the engine oil. This can cause damage to the engine and furthermore lead to potentially dangerous situations.
Should you experience problems with the fuel supply, then it is advisable to have the system and the fuel pressure regulator inspected and, if necessary, have the regulator replaced. Seeing that the fuel pressure regulator is especially prone to deterioration over time it should always be replaced as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.
Can you drive with a bad fuel pressure sensor?
If you suspect there is any issue with a fuel pressure sensor or there are concerns about its age or condition, book an inspection with a professional mechanic as soon as possible, driving the vehicle may lead to further complications or damage.
Is a bad fuel pressure regulator an MOT failure?
The fuel pressure regulator is part of the fuel system which is an important part of the MOT checklist so there is a chance it could fail the MOT test if it is found to be faulty or clogged and poses a safety risk. It is a critical device when it comes to optimising engine performance as it controls the fuel pressure feeding into the fuel injectors and engine. If you find that the fuel pressure regulator is bad, be sure to get it fixed and replaced if needed prior to an MOT test.
How much does it cost to replace a fuel sensor?
Prices for a fuel pressure regulator replacement range from £200 to £300 with an average cost of £250. Ultimately, the cost of replacing a fuel pressure regulator depends on your car and what parts your car's manufacturer recommends using for the replacement.
