the FPRs are inexpensive if I recall...I'm not aware of any "rebuild" kits either.

Mine was replaced free at the dealer due to a recall. Why not check and see if your year and model was recalled before spending the money?

FPR'* are not rebuildable. They're crimped at the factory in a way that will not come apart.

Please put your year and model in your signature so we can help you a little more efficiently.

Just checked Bonneville recalls on the 'net. The recall is for 98-99 cars. Guess you're on the hook.

My advice is to park it until you can get to the parts puppies and replace the part. If you can smell fuel, I don't think the car is safe to drive.

Wait, you're leaking fuel past the relief valve on the fuel rail? Have you tightened the valve or replaced it?

Well, this is a first here. Please report back how your fix works.

And if there'* sludge in the FPR, it'* time to change your fuel filter back by the tank. $10, ten minutes.
