turn the key to on, without starting the engine, you should be able to hear it hum from the gas tank. or start the engine, and look for the fuel pressure test port, its a shrater valve its gonna be on one of the rails, or on the cross over pipe. push that down and you should get a pretty healthy dose of gasoline. thats all if its working. If its not working your engine wont start.

Even when car isn't running
