A pressure regulator as the term suggests is a device which is responsible for regulating the pressure of fuel or air in a vehicle. In most cases it is used to control the pressure and flow of fuel to the engine. However, all car manufacturers use a different type of pressure regulator which is meant to maintain the right flow of fuel to engines designed for those vehicles. It is for this reason that you have to replace the regulator with one that’s meant specifically for that vehicle.
One of the signs that the fuel pressure regulator is not working is that your car will not run properly. The car may not idle as smoothly or accelerate without slight bubbling from the engine. The reason why you experience bucking or bubbling from the engine is because it’s not getting the right amount of fuel. In some extreme cases, your car may not start because it’s received too much fuel. The best way to determine if in fact the problem is with the regulator is to visit a certified mechanic who will inspect your vehicle. Also, replacing a regulator is not difficult and can be done in under an hour.
