YES I NEED TO KNOW HOW CK.FUEL PRESSURE

Expert:  Pete replied 5 months ago.

O.k.,the fuel pressure on this model needs to be between 41 and 47 psi with the key on and engine off.If any lower then 41 or if the pressure drops off rapidly after the pump runs for the first two seconds then the pump needs replaced in most cases.A fuel presssure test gauge either threads onto the fuel injector rail onto the test port on the fuel rail or if this model is not equipped with the test port the fuel filter needs removed and an adapter needs obtained that goes in line where the filter was installed.You can usually rent the tester and adapter for this model here from a local parts store.
