On the fuel rail at the injectors is a bleeder valve that looks somewhat like a tire valve. Have someone turn it over while you push this down. It is possible that you have air in the line and that is what is causing it to not want to crank up. Another way to check if it is something in the fuel rail, spray ether into the intake while someone is turning it over. If it cranks you have spark and no fuel or not enough fuel.

The following is the cheapest and easiest way to check your fuel pressure and it's a five minute job.

  • Check the fuel pressure with a loaner fuel pressure gauge from AutoZone. It's FREE and comes with full instructions
  • Your reading should be 40-45 PSI and holding steady.
  • Contaminated fuel is a constant problem and if the pressure does not hold steady, replace the fuel filter.
Additional Checks:

  • Make certain that the engine thermostat is functioning and is the correct temperature.
  • Make certain that the alternator voltage output is not less than 9 volts nor more than 17 volts.

All the best

SOURCE: looking for schrader valve, trying

You will find a valve on your fuel rail. Your fuel injectors are attached to the fuel rail. The valve will look similar to a tire air valve and will be at the opposite end from where the file is.

Location of fuel pressure valve on fuel rail buick rendevoues 2002

I don't believe you have one. If it isn't on the fuel rail, I did look at your fuel rail in database, didn't see schrader valve. On these vehicles you tee into the supply line to check fuel pressure. You need fuel gage and proper fittings. Don't take a fuel line loose unless your sure no pressure on the system.

Where is the fuel test valve on a 2000 Toyota Solara v6 3.0. For fuel pressure test

great question. 1MZ-FE
the V6 has a fuel rail and all rails made
have a plug there (pipe plug) to test it or a mounted
Schrader valve (rated for fuel not tire kind at all.)
if not there we add one. on all cars. or make up and adapter
there are many ways, depends on year.
the plug on rail , the valve.
on newer cars a quick disconnect line , you add matching Tee fitting.
some have test port on the fuel filter is outside tank.

here is 95 rail with no fitting, cant find 2000
the 2002 is non return system (2000 i dont know)
summit racing sells a banjo bolt that is hollow to fit rails.
remove banjo at crossover, put in new bolt and bam, got a port.

Where is the schroeder valve on a 2000 kia sportage

Id start by looking on the INTAKE manifold for 4 fuel injectors. They are connected by a commone pipe or tube called a fuel rail. Its typically located at one end or the other of this fuel rail. Hope this helps.

Where is the fuel pressure port

you should be able to relieve the fuel pressure a couple of ways. the fuel pressure can be relieved by pushing the schrader valve at the end of the fuel rail. just follow the fuel line to the intake manifold and that will lead you to the fuel rail. the valve should be at either end of the fuel rail. if you cant find it just let the car sit for about an hour. this will let the fuel pressure bleed down a bit then just remove the fuel line wherever you need to. you will probably still get a little bit of fuel on you but it won't be that bad.

Want to check fuel pressure but cant find valve was told fuel pump is bad. is pump in tank??


Yes, the fuel pump is located insde the fuel check the fuel pressure at the service port located on the fuel injectors rail. it has a cap and looks just like the valve where you put air in your tires. If you don't have a fuel pump pressure testerr, borrow one from AutoZone.
