It's leaking gasoline, so it needs to be fixed but not sure what to order / difficulty to replace it.

Fuel regulator, IIRC.

Yup, that's the fuel pressure regulator. Most likely the diaphragm is torn.

Patience is a virtue when changing that. It's the stupid star bit screws, which usually end up being a royal pain to get out. Buddy of mine stripped a couple, then I managed to strip mine on the GA, AND the ones on the back of the fuel lines going to the "spider" in my 4.3L ....

Hit it with some PB Blast a couple hours before you bust into it, and just be slow and patient. Easy job until that head gets mangled lol

Alright good to know; I appreciate the speedy answers - wouldn't consider this a Christmas miracle, but at least I know what it is.

Yeah around $40 for the part - I've got a smile on my face thinking about what it COULD have been... UIM :X

$40?! Last I checked, they were half that...

I dunno...I haven't worked at Autozone since the beginning of 2010. lol

Iirc, the FPR was only good for 50K miles, I changed mine @ 99K, when she was warm, it started easier if I tapped the gas while starting it. It fixed that little issue right up, maybe you'll get lucky and it'll help out the motor a little bit, doubtful, but I'll cross my fingers for ya lol

Ya, there's a good chance it will start easier.
