    I took a few pictures of my 2006 voltage regulator that I am re brushing. I posted them to my old thread on the alternator wear. You have two like this.

    I pulled one off at the junkyard it was pretty easy. I do the same with my two. Within reason I put the new parts on the 06 and swap the 06 parts onto the 03. I just did that with ignition coil. I bought the good OTC tool for aligning the cam synchonizer and that makes it much easier. Wires would be easier with the UIM off for sure. I am curious how well oven cleaner will work on the UIM. You should post up some photos.

    Have you ever pulled the UIM off one of your cars? My 2001 is starting to chirp, Cam Sync, so I was going to pull the one from my 2006 and replace it with a new one. The old one goes to the 2001. The 2006 has 145K on it. It is my long distance car and the 2001 is my wife's around town car. The 2001 had it replaced at 50k and it is now going at 136K. It was installed by a dealer in Florida while we were on vacation. $600.

    So I'm thinking new in the 2006 but also the UIM is really crudded up so I thinking of pulling it and using oven cleaner around the PCV inlet and the EGR. Also new wires since it will be all open.

    Don't blow yourself up with the injector tester. I wouldn't use gas but maybe mineral oil or kerosene.

    The OP said "plugs wires" which I assumed meant "plugs, wires" I had to think about that one too.

    I used the impact on mine. The one came out hard all the way out. It would have been a royal pain with a ratchet. The other sided was not so bad. My 03 was back east the first half of its life so it has more rust then what I am used to for a car here. Kinda of a bummer but the price was right at the auction for the hail damage. Now if I can just whip the gremlins in it.

    Thanks for listing the part number for the bolts and U-bolts for the fuel tank straps. I am replacing the pump today and mine are rounded off and badly rusted. I ordered them today and pick them up tomorrow. Now I just need to figure hoe to get them out. Got very thing I can possible need to get them out just got to figure which way.
