Asked by Dec 23, 2015 at 09:17 AM about the 2003 Chevrolet SSR 2 Dr LS Convertible Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Won't start easily - changed fuel filter and fuel regulator. Car acts like an
electric fuel pump. Takes 2 to 3 cranks to get fuel to engine.

You changed the filter and regulator, but did you check the fuel pressure first if you haven't already before replacing?

Also there are procedures when checking fuel pressure to determine what would be the cause of an issue. Hard starting is a symptom of a fuel issue.
