    Default Oh no - P1191 - Fuel Pressure

    So Ive been getting a spanner light appearing briefly every so often, plugged it into laptop today, Ive got one error code, P1191 - Fuel Pressure System Malfunction.. Garrrr.. Car is running ok though... Its an 05 z22yh Vectra.. It has original regulator and pump on by the looks of it.. Am I right in thinking my first job should be to get the fuel regulator replaced? And am I also thinkiing correctly that a VX dealer should do that free of charge for me, even though my car is 5 years old??

    If there's a recall on it m8, then yeah it should be done at no cost to you.

    On reading this thread you seem to be in the middle if you look at the concerned partys' profiles.

    What do you mean vacuum? Do you mean a hose connected to the regulator? and if it has no fuel in it then regulators ok? Does a faulty regulator leak fuel into a vacuum hose then?

    30 quid? I'll do it myself then.. Easier than driving 20 miles to my nearest dealer... Where from can I get it for 30 quid matey?

    I would do a fuel pressure test first, your replacement pump maybe no good, also check your MAP sensor, TPS and see if you got any fault codes stored in your engine controler. Since that regulator is controlled by vacuum, then there is just a rubber diaphram and since you said there was no fuel in the vacuum line when you pulled it then no its not bad. dont know wherer u buy them. my m8 did tho

    I havnt replaced the fuel pump yet, and I wouldnt know how to do a fuel pressure test.. I thought the fuel pressure regulator just has an electric plug connected to it.. Can somebody else confirm.. Its only this one error code my car has, and its still running fine, the spanner light doesnt stay on, it comes and goes.. I think the regulator should really be the first thing to try swapping out as that seems to a part generally identified as being no good, some people had it done as part of a recall.. Anybody know the cheapest place to obtain a regulator? Thanks.. :-)
