    fuel pressure sensor should be part of the fuel cell that is commonly know as fuel pump assm. fuel pressure regulator is located in fuel rail near injectors

    Thank you for your response. However, the regulator is NOT on the fuel rail. My husband completely removed the fuel rail and trust me it is not on there or anywhere near there. I don't know what the deal is but this 2004 Chevrolet 1500 crew cab 5.3 liter is not like every other 5.3 liters. Nothing is the same when it comes to part locations or even some of the parts themselves. It is a Texas Edition T series. Would that make a difference?
