What Does A Fuel Pressure Regulator Do?

What Does A Fuel Pressure Regulator Do?

A Fuel Pressure Regulator is part of your car’s fuel management system that helps your car run and perform consistently without a flaw. It holds pressure inside the fuel rail, maintaining the proper fuel pressure at both start and while driving your car. The regulator’s main purpose is to monitor the fuel pressure. Too little fuel pressure would result in poor running conditions, while too much would place excess pressure on the fuel pump. Faulty Fuel Pressure Symptoms There are a few noticeable symptoms that could be an indication of a faulty fuel pressure regulator on your car. Incorrect fuel pressure results in not enough fuel to keep your car running. You might notice poor or rough running conditions while operating your car.

Shocks and struts are responsible for dampening all of the inconsistencies in the road and bumps that you normally run over. If you did not have shocks on your car, you would bounce around down the road and it would make for a very uncomfortable ride. It’s usually obvious when they are blown or worn out.

On the contrary, good shocks absorb bumps and keep brakes and tires doing what they’re supposed to while coming to a stop. Bad shocks can also cause uneven tire wear which we call ‘cupping’.
