CHEVY FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR

1998 Chevrolet Blazer

Engine Performance problem
1998 Chevy Blazer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 16000 miles

My Blazer is hard to start (can smell fuel when trying to start) and doesn't have much pickup when accelerating. I have been told it need to have the fuel pressure regulator replaced and this is very expensive. Is this correct and how do I know what it should cost?

May want to start with replacing the fuel filter first. clogged fuel filter could cause these symptoms. if filter is clean then a bad fuel pressure regulator could definitely cause these same symptoms. estimate is below for having your vehicle's fuel regulator replaced.
