Question about 2000 Ford Econoline
Where is this part located? I need the valve to place a fuel gauge on it to check the pressure. thx.
If you mean the fuel rail for the injectors, its connected to the injectors. There should be a fitting on the rail for a gauge to connect.
The filter is under the van between the gas tank and the engine.

I had this same issue. There is an inertia switch located below glove box. Mine went bad. Here is what I wrote to another person with the similar problem:
I have a 2005 Ranger Edge. I had the same problem. I did two things. First I replaced the fuel pump and it worked again for about 2 months. Then it stopped working again so I replaced the inertia switch with a new one from the Ford Dealership. It worked again for about a month. Than it stopped again, so I replaced the wiring that goes from the inertia switch to the main box on the bottom right passenger side. I also put the inertia switch inside the casing on the lower right so it couldn't be kicked. It has been working for 2 weeks now. I hope nothing else happens.
On another note, I had another electrical problem. My speedometer cluster stopped working and my mechanic found loose wires rubbing against metal on the inside. I think the electrical components on these Ford Rangers are just cheaply made. That is the only thing to check for you now. If it isn't the fuel pump or the inertia switch, just check all the wiring from fuel pump to inertia switch to make sure it is all done correctly. Also check all fuses for fuel pump/inertia switches.
Sometimes I say I and mean a mechanic, I am not a car expert, but would like to be.

I know the ford cars had a trip relay for the fuel pump. In the event of a wreck it shuts the fuel pump down and has to be reset manually. I am unsure if the pickups had the same thing.

SOURCE: how to test fuel pressure
I have been working on a simular problem on my daughter's vehicle. with the following additional symptoms. It only fails while hot. Runing fuel preassure checks, I noticed that the preassure rises from 30 psi while running to 40 psi after turning off the hot engine. This is caused by the expansion of the fuel in the rail. I believe that this hgh preassure is causing the regulator to stick closed preventing the fuel to get to the rail during a restart, (as the preassure drops to 0 while the fuel pump does whirrrr during the startup proceedure). It seems to free up after it has cooled then works normally. We ordered a new regulator but haven't received it yet to see if this fixes the problem. There is a possibility that the problem is a weak pump that cannot overcome the stuck regulator but since all the checks are in spec, I'm leaning toward the regulator at the moment.
