Fuel Charging and Controls The fuel charging and controls system consists of: fuel pressure regulator (9C968) fuel injection supply manifold (9F792) fuel injectors (9F593) fuel shut off valve solenoid (9D278) fuel pressure relief valve (9H321) injection pressure sensor engine fuel temperature sensor fuel charging wiring harness Component Location Fuel Pressure Regulator The fuel pressure regulator is located on the inside of the LH frame rail just forward of the transmission support crossmember. It is part of an assembly that includes the coalescer/filter. The fuel pressure regulator reduces the line pressure from tank pressure 20685 kPa (3000 psi) to line pressure 655 kPa (95 psi). Heating/Defrosting—Natural Gas Vehicle Fuel pressure regulator heating is provided by two 3/8-inch taps from the existing heater supply and return hoses on the RH rear of the engine. Two high-temperature 3/8-inch ID heater hoses (packaged with the front low-pressure fuel line) are used to connect the fuel pressure regulator to the tap points on the engine heater hoses. Refer to the Line — Low Pressure Fuel procedure in Section 310-01B for fuel pressure regulator heater hose replacement. Fuel Pressure Regulator Heater Hoses Fuel Injection Supply Manifold The fuel injection supply manifold delivers high-pressure fuel from the vehicle fuel supply line to the fuel injectors. The fuel injection supply manifold consists of the following: a tubular fuel rail eight fuel injector connectors a fuel pressure relief valve a fuel shut off valve solenoid mounting attachments which locate the fuel injection supply manifold and provide fuel injector retention. a fuel inlet connection which has a push-connect fitting an injection pressure sensor an engine fuel temperature sensor Fuel Injection Supply Manifold Fuel Injectors The natural gas fuel injectors are electro-mechanical devices that meter fuel delivered to the engine. The natural gas fuel injectors are mounted in the lower intake manifold (9424) and are positioned so that their tips direct fuel just ahead of the engine intake valves (6507). The natural gas fuel injector bodies consist of a solenoid and a needle and valve assembly. Natural gas fuel injectors can be identified by an aqua cap on the injector body. Fuel Shutoff Valve Solenoid The fuel shut off valve solenoid seals the upstream fuel pressure from entering the fuel injection supply manifold when the engine is not running. The fuel shut off valve solenoid is open only when it is activated by the solenoid valve (fuel pump) relay. Fuel Pressure Relief Valve The fuel pressure relief valve is located on the fuel injection supply manifold, and is used to relieve fuel system pressure from the fuel delivery system. Injection Pressure Sensor The injection pressure sensor is located on the fuel injection supply manifold, and is used to provide a signal to the powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650) that is proportional to pressure in the fuel injection supply manifold. Engine Fuel Temperature Sensor The engine fuel temperature sensor is located on the fuel injection supply manifold, and is used to provide a signal to the powertrain control module that indicates the temperature of the fuel in the fuel injection supply manifold. Fuel Charging Wiring The fuel charging wiring is a single harness that includes electrical connectors for the fuel injectors, ignition coils and various sensors, valves and senders that monitor all engine functions.

An exhaust leak at the exhaust manifolds may be evident on some vehicles. This may be due to heat causing a reduction in bolt torque on the exhaust manifolds. ACTION Install new exhaust manifold bolts. Refer to the following Service Procedure and Part Application Chart for details. SERVICE PROCEDURE 1. If an exhaust leak exists at the exhaust manifold due to a reduction in bolt torque, remove the manifold bolts and the exhaust manifold and check the overall flatness of the manifold. The manifold should not exceed 0.25 mm (0.010″) out- of-flat. Refer to the appropriate model/year Service Manual for manifold removal procedures. 2. If the vehicle is covered under the emissions warranty period, replace the manifold if it is out-of-flat. If the vehicle is out of the emissions warranty period, resurface the exhaust manifold. NOTE IF THE MANIFOLD IS TO BE RESURFACED, THE BOLTS MUST BE SHORTENED TO ACCOMMODATE THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD. THE BOLTS SHOULD HAVE THE LEADING “DOG POINT” REMOVED TO PREVENT BOTTOMING INTO THE HOLE. 3. Install the manifold using new mounting hardware, but DO NOT USE WASHERS TO INSTALL THE MANIFOLD. Torque the bolts to 34-47 N.m (25- 35 lb-ft). NOTE THERE SHOULD NOT BE ANY TYPE OF GASKET USED BETWEEN THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD AND THE CYLINDER HEAD. 4. Check all exhaust system fittings loosened during repair for adequate tightness and allow engine to warm up. Recheck exhaust system for leaks and repair as required.
