How can I check the fuel presure in Toyota tacoma engine 2.4

Sorry am not sure whether Tacoma engine is petrol or diesel, what age it is or what fuelling system but assuming it is a conventional petrol injection system, the fuel pressure test is just one of four tests carried out when a problem with fuel delivery is suspected and begins with fitting the appropriate adaptors to the fuel line and then fitting a pressure gauge.

It is not just the correct fuel pressure(s) needed for satisfactory engine performance but also sufficient fuel volume.

Before carrying out the tests is is usually necessary to fit a switch in place of the fuel pump relay so the pump can be started with an open line and the engine switched off. The amount of fuel delivered into an appropriate container in a set time is measured and compared with specs.

The next test is the peak pressure test - a momentary test with a closed fuel line to test the mechanical strength of the pump and lines.

The next test is the regulated pressure test with the fuel line again connected to the engine and the enriched pressure recorded and compared with specs and finally the engine is started or vacuum applied to the regulator valve with a hand pump and the lean or normal pressure is recorded.

With some older engines it is possible to easily install a pressure gauge with universal adaptors but as later engines tend to use quick release fittings an number of special adaptors will be needed.

How do i check fuel pressure without a gauge

You can't know the correct pressure. But you can get a good idea by removing the return hose from the fuel rail , fit a length of hose to the rail and into a container start the engine, and fuel will flow into the container if the regulator and pump are ok.

I changed fuel filter and fuel pump .car still wont start intill the pump Stops pumping not sure what to do at this point im basically a parts changer that's it.i feel like the pvc valve may be...

I read this the other day and it made no sense to me.
The PCV would have nothing to do with the engine starting, only how it runs.
You would need to check fuel pressure at the injector rail with a gauge to see if the pump is working.
The pump should run for 3 seconds with the key on then stop until the engine starts. It gets power from the pump relay then once the oil pressure switch shows oil pressure. If the engine does not start the pump should not have power.

200 freelander diesel bmw engine wont start

The Freelander diesel is notorious for Fuel pump failure, most commonly the one in the tank, access is via under the back seat, Pump replacement is an easy job but get an aftermarket pump as the OEM units are pricey. Fuel pump life seems to suffer if you drive around most of the time with a low tank level, say 1/3 or less, or if the good lady screws up and fills it with blokes would never do that would we??
A quick roadside fix is to vigously pound the underside of the fuel tank with a flat mallet, even a fist...not a hammer as you'll dent the tank...that should jump the pump into operation for a while to get you home
Good luck, David

Fuel filter freelander (petrol)

The fuel fillter is in the but you shouldnt have to drop the tank to get to it or the pump. Lift the back seat and you will see a plate held in place with screews take this off. Below this is a steel plate that you will have to spin off may need help fro a hammer as they are tight. Some are badged BWM. This gets you to the fuel pump and the filter

hope it helps
