Default What'* this pipe? ( A: Fuel Pressure Regulator vacuum line)



when the engine of my bonneville 93 is running, the shape of this pipe becomes flat. I need to replace it. But I don't know what this pipe is for.
Thanks.

I have a complete fuel rail with a FPR from a 1993 bonneville I yanked from the junk yard in case it turned out to be an FPR. I can send it to you for what I paid ($30 + whatever it'll cost to ship) from the junkyard if you want?

PM me

There'* nothing wrong with the FPR. Replace the vacuum line and go on your merry way.

Really.. make sure you get the fuel line type hosing so it doesn't collapse on itself like this.

Aaron.. Selling everything for the 94?
