Expert:  Greg replied 7 years ago.
Hi
You need a fuel pressure gauge, that can check the fuel pressure with a running engine.
First check pressure with engine running .
then check pressure with engine running with blocked return hose.
If you cannot check pressure, just try you fuel regulator. you have nothing to lose and if that's it, you save on buying a fuel pressure tester. keep me up to date
Kind regards Greg

You need to check the fuel pressure if it runs or not
should be around 34-41psi
