Hi, My name is Jay

When you turn on the key do you get the theft light to come on and then go out? Have you had computer scanned for any stored codes?

no theft light
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
not scannned since fuel pressure valve changed
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
fuel pumps working fine just no pressure on fuel rail

When you say fuel pressure valve are you talking about the fuel pump in the tank?

Ask Your Own Pontiac Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
the valve on top of tank beside the fuel pump

If you are hearing the pump run when key is cycled but not getting pressure to fuel rail then you have a bad fuel regulator leak on fuel pump.

Ask Your Own Pontiac Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
that means bad fuel pump

Yes. If you hear pump run it has two small plastic lines on pump and main pressure one broke or sock on bottom of pump is completely clogged. Either way pump will need to be removed to be inspected and replaced.
