Fuel Pressure Regulator Leaking

The fuel pressure regulator on my 02' GAGT appears to be leaking, I smell fuel and the regulator is wet. I get fuel on my finger when I wipe the regulator so I know it's coming from that area, I wonder if its got a cut seal or what's going on. Odd thing is that yesterday afternoon it was bone dry and when I got home last night it was wet again. Anyone have this issue before? Should I just buy a new FPR or a seal kit?

Can't buy any seal kit for the OEM regulator, they are not serviceable. I would just replace it with a new one.

Well I went out this morning popped the hood and the regulator was bone dry so I turned the key to the on position/engine off and watched the fuel start to seep out of the regulator where the top hat crimps to the base. I bought a GP Sorensen replacement from Autozone and installed it today, the leak is now gone so hopefully my MPG gets better.

Your MPG should get better.

Those things can be a pain in the ass. I usually just jam the throttle body open with a screwdriver handle.. that helps alot.

I removed the air cleaner lid/tube, throttle cables and bracket to gain access to the FPR and replacing it was very simple from that point. I didn't want to have to buy a throttle body gasket or upper plenum gasket and didn't need to because there was plenty of room to work with. 24mm wrench for the bottom flare nut and a T30 for the rail bolt and a 10mm for the throttle cable bracket bolts along with a flathead to remove the air cleaner lid and tube.

note - a can of WD40 works good to lube the new seals and reinstall the plastic fitting into the air cleaner tube.
