FUEL FILTER FINE HOW DO YOU CHECK THE FUEL PUMP PRESSURE?

90,085

You have a fuel rail and on this fuel rail there is a fitting that looks somewhat like a bicycle fitting, there you will put a gauge on to read the fuel pressure. If you don't have gauge you can purchase a inexpensive one from Harbor Freight...
