go to autozone they have tool rentals so you could get the tools you need

I agree. They will give you your money back when you return the testers undamaged. Also check for inertia fuel cut off switch. Most fords have them. If red button is sticking up press it back down to reset switch. If this ok then do fuel pressure check.
