Default Fuel pump regulator recall

Did anyone else get a recall notice for their 1999 bonnevile for the fuel pump regulator?
Could that be the reason for not clean starts or mild sputtering?

yes and it was the Fuel Pressure Regular that was recalled.....the FRP would leak down into the intake and causes a explosion in some cases

I got a recall notice and got mine done, even though I hadn't noticed any symptoms that the notice described.

Took about 45 minutes. It'* free, so what the hell? Git 'er done!

any 92-99 with the 3800 Series II got that notice.
Dealer does it free, just make an appointment.

I replaced mine during "routine" maintenance. Then when the upper intake went a year ago, they replced it again under the recall.
