Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?
GSI is a family of engines, what I need is the actual model number. Depending on which model you have there will be anywhere from 4 to 6 more letters after the GSI forming the complete model number. For example, 5.7GSI-ABCDEF
Can I get the full model number on the engine please.
Hi Mike. There are no time limits here. Just reply back when you have it and we can take it from there.
It's usually on a sticker either on the valve cover or on the spark arrester.
The problem is there are 7 different GSI models, and they are all different. Below is a list of all 7. I would need to know exactly which one you have to answer any questions on the engine.
You are very welcome.
Now did you just need to know where the fuel pressure regulator was? Or do you need help trying to solve a problem?
That's why I had asked if you wanted help or was just wanting to know where the fuel pressure regulator was.
To me the problem doesn't sound like a bad regulator, it sounds more like fuel starvation. Have you measured you fuel pressure at max speed?
Do you have any autozones nearby?
They do free loaners on tools as long as you pop a deposit down on it with a credit card. All you need is any old automotive fuel pressure gauge. But you would have to make sure it comes with the GM TBI adaptor for checking fuel pressure.
The other thing is you want to check engine compression as well.
Can you do those 2 checks and get back to me?
You bet, keep me posted.
