You can release the pressure by using the schrader valve on the fuel rail to bleed it off.

check air filter to see if it is clogged. if it isn't check your fuel filters. you have one on the fire wall and one underneath the car on the driver side connecting the engine to the gas tank. open your truck, uncover the inside right fender panel, push the button on the switch and release the button. the button should pop out. the button has wires going to it. it is attached to the well wall under the cover you removed. try to start your car several timestil it will not even try to start. this release the gas pressure in your gas line. now you can replace both filters. after you replaced both gas filters, push the button in to reset it. try to start your engine, pump the gas pettle several times while you are cranking the engine. this will put gas pressure back in your gas line and into your engine. the gas filters should be changed according to manufacture time requirements. call ford parts department and ask how often the gas filters should be changed. any other information can be obtained at any auto parts company. try this first and hope it's not your fuel pump. your fuel pump is inside the gas tank. my fuel pump part caused $300. i recommend you buy it from ford. you don't want any gas leaks and ford will match it up if you need it.

How to repair gas pump


First thing to try and do is to pull the air intake hose off between the throttle body and the air cleaner box. Have someone try to turn it over while you are spraying ether into the throttle body with the flap open. If it starts and dies then you have a problem with it getting fuel. If this is the case then start by replacing the fuel filter (it is under the drivers side of the vehicle right around the door). When you do this you should see an aluminum line that is running to the fuel injector under the hood. Following that line you should see a black cap and under that cap is a pressure relief valve. Qhile someone is trying to start it push down on that to release any air in the fuel line from changing the filter out. When you see fuel come out release the valve and It should start right up. If not , after you release the valve spray some ether in the intake and when it starts put the gas until it stays running and then it should be good to go. To replace the pump you have to drop the gas tank.

Car won't start


I had the same problem it was the fuel pump itself. Have it pressure line tested, if it is lower then 60 psi then its bad. Mine was reading 55psi and would not start my blazer. If i sprayed starter fluid in the throttle body vrrrm start right up. This is because (what I was told) it is a high pressure furl system. also make sure the line you replaced is installed right and is right line

the fuel filter is located on the drivers side under neath where the rear seat would be connected to the frame. relieve fuel system pressure,disconnect negative terminal from the battery,raise rear of vehicleand support it securily on jackstands,detach fuel lines from the filter,some have quick connect . squeeze plastic tabs to pull the connector apart,if it has threaded fiting unscrew the fuel line from the filter.
