A certain pressure must be present in the fuel lines so that the engine is always supplied with sufficient fuel. The necessary pressure is provided by the Fuel pump in a car. However, depending on the fuel pump, the pressure from the fuel may be too high for the engine. In the worst case, this can result in connections or lines bursting and the fuel spreading in the vehicle and possibly even igniting on hot components. A vehicle fire due to excessive fuel pressure would be nothing new. To prevent this from happening, a gas pressure regulator is installed.
Fuel pressure regulator - optimal performance
Depending on the car and engine, the fuel pressure can be set individually using the fuel pressure regulator. Depending on the vehicle, the pressure can be between 3 and 5 bar. The pressure required can be individually adjusted, especially to the specific requirements of the engine. Especially if you want to tune the engine and thus want the highest level of engine power, the fuel pressure has to be right. If the setting of the fuel pressure regulator is not correct, this can not only limit the performance of the engine, but above all it can lead to difficulties when starting the engine.
Exchange of the fuel pressure regulator
When buying, you should look at the models of the fuel pressure regulator in terms of performance and compare. Also because, depending on the model, there may still be specific requirements regarding the connections, the size and even the functionality. The fuel pressure regulator can be installed at different points depending on the vehicle model. Based on Fuel lines and their course, it is relatively easy to find the previous fuel pressure regulator. It should be noted, however, that a fuel pressure regulator does not necessarily have to be installed ex works. To be able to remove the controller, you may have to remove the injectors remove, but the fuel lines may also be in the way. Only then can the screws and clamps be loosened to enable removal. Depending on the vehicle model and any existing changes, this can be completely different. Once you have found and removed the regulator, you can install the new fuel pressure regulator. Depending on the model, there may be some air in the system afterwards. Bleeding may be necessary here before starting the engine. Entries or a test by the TÜV do not have to be made by replacing / installing the fuel pressure regulator.
We hope that you the info report on the topic / term Fuel pressure regulator (further names / keywords: petrol pressure gauge, diesel pressure regulator, fuel pressure regulator, fuel regulator, fuel regulator) from the field of autotuning. Our goal is that the largest German-language tuning dictionary (Tuning Wikipedia) and to explain tuning terms from A to Z easily and understandably. Almost every day we expand this lexicon and how far we are, you can HERE see. Soon the next one will be Tuning scene concept be illuminated by us.
