Really bad fuel economy, engine runs rough when warm (possibly won't start or hard to start when warm), possibly black smoke from the exhaust, unusual noises from the fuel pump, and general poor performance.

You will need to test the pressure of the fuel system with the regulator on and then disabled. You will need a manual for the correct pressures. Be sure to read the fuel warnings in the manual as the fuel rails will be under pressure even with the vehicle turned off.

What are symptoms of a damaged Fuel Pressure Regulator in a Blazer 98 4.3L V6 Vortec?

If you Google "Symptoms of a faulty fuel regulator" you will get quite a few hits. If the regulator is bad it may cause either a drop in fuel pressure or an increase in fuel pressure at the rail . A drop in fuel pressure, if severe enough, can cause bad or no idle condition, engine starving for fuel and etc. If the regulator is causing excessive pressure it can cause fouled plugs, black smoke from exhaust and rough engine performance. Before you change the regulator check for cracked, rotted or disconnected vacuum hose. Also you can connect a fuel pressure gauge to the schrader valve on the rail and monitor the pressure to see if it is in specifications, or to see if the fuel pressure drops rapidly after engine shutdown. Hope this helps and good luck with your problem. Dan

Why does my 1994 Ford Explorer lose fuel pressure after running for a short time shut off vehicle and start it back up and fuel pressure returns?

Sounds like a bad fuel pressure regulator. That may be, but my experience with fuel pressure regulator failure was major overloading with fuel. This regulator is vacuum operated and when the diaphagm fails it won't open and allow excess fuel to return to the tank. Rather, I would presume it to be the fuel filter needing replacement.

If you look at it you will see a vacuum line hooked to it, while the engine is running unplug it and the engine sound should change. If it don't then the regulator is bad. You can also hook up a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel line and read what the pressure is while engine is idleing and then unplug the regulator and the fuel pressure should go up a few LBS. If not replace regulator.
