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.

SOURCE: 05 ford ranger 3.0 xlt fuel pump???

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.

SOURCE: '88 f150 will not start, 0 fuel pressure

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.

Fuel pressure


fuel pressure needs to be checked with a pressure gauge attached to the fuel pressure testing port. it is a Schrader valve located on the fuel rail which is what supplies the injectors with fuel, it looks similar to a tire valve.

Replacing plugs on 2003 Escort ZX2


Instructions1 Pop the hood and locate the fuel rail on the intake manifold. Connect the fuel pressure gauge to the Schrader valve at the end. Push the manual relief valve on the gauge to relieve the fuel pressure in the system.
2 Place a drain pan underneath the center of the engine, on the driver's side by the firewall. Locate the fuel filter, which is on the firewall on the driver's side, toward the backside of the engine.
3 Disconnect the fuel lines running to and from the fuel filter using the pliers and then unbolt the filter from its mounting bracket using the 3/8-inch ratchet and socket. Remove the old fuel filter and discard it.
4 Set the replacement fuel filter in place. Make sure the arrow on the filter is pointing toward the engine and away from the gas tank. Secure it in the fuel filter bracket using the ratchet and then reinstall the fuel lines using the pliers.
5 Start the engine and make sure everything is running correctly.
Thanks

I have looked at the front and back of the fuel rail of my 1994 sunbird and can not find it. What does it look like, give me a diagram of where it is located. It is fuel injected single overhead cam,...


I'm pretty sure that one uses the lower intake as the fuel rail. If that's the case than there is no schrader valve. You'll need to test for fuel pressure at the fuel filter by removing one of the lines from the filter and using adapters install a test hose inline and then attach your pressure gauge to that.

If the fuel pressure regulator attaches to the drivers side of the lower intake than you have this setup.

I have a 1999 ford expedition i have been have trouble starting it for a month now changed the fuel filter reset the fuel pump switch checked the fuses all good. It turns and half the time it starts now...


GO TO AUTO PARTS STORE BUY A FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE THAT CAN CHECK FUEL PRESSURE UP TO 100 PSI. LOCATE YOUR FUEL PRESSURE TEST PORT.LOOK FOR SCHRADER VALVE ON FUEL LINE NEXT TO EGR VALVE.PLACE A RAG NEAR THE SCHRADER VALVE AS YOU INSTALL FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE TO CATCH GAS SPILL AS YOU SCREW IN FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE HOSE FUEL PRESSURE 30 - 45 PSI WITH ENGINE RUNNING. THE ENGINE MUST BE OFF HOOK UP THE FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE.IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE THE FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE WILL HAVE INSTRUCTION HOW TO HOOK UP FUEL PRESURE GAUGE.BE CAREFUL CHECKING FUEL PRESSURE IS DANGEROUS JOB.DONT ALLOW NO MASSIVE FUEL SPRAYING WHEN HOOKING UP FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE YOU WILL GET CAR FIRE.

I put a new fuel pump in my 97 concorde, it ran just fine all the way home, but in the morning i wouldnt start. i put another pump in and the same thing happend. could this be a short somewhere?


Well, the fuel pump relay may not be getting electricity to the fuel pump.

Also, use the following procedure to test the fuel pump before changing it again:

TESTING Fig. 1: Connect the fuel pressure gauge C4799B or equivalent to the fuel rail service valve - 3.3L shown 88175g09.gif
Fig. 2: Checking the fuel pressure with a gauge - 3.5L shown 88175g10.gif
Fig. 3: Checking the pressure between the pump and the filter 88175g11.gif
Fig. 4: Place the other end of the adapter 6668 into an approved gasoline container 88175g12.gif
  1. Release the fuel system pressure as described in earlier in this section.
  2. Remove the protective cover from the service valve on the fuel rail.
  3. Connect fuel pressure gauge C-4799B or equivalent to the fuel rail service valve.
  4. Place the ignition key in the ON position. Using the DRB III tester or equivalent, access the ASD fuel system test. (The ASD fuel system test will activate the fuel pump and pressurize the system.)
  5. If the gauge reading equals the specifications, then further testing is not required. Without vacuum applied to the regulator, the 3.3L engine fuel system operates at 55 psi (379 kPa). With the engine idling and the manifold vacuum applied to the regulator, the system operates at approximately 46 psi (317 kPa). Without vacuum applied to the regulator, the 3.5L engine fuel system operates at 48 psi (331 kPa). With the engine idling and the manifold vacuum applied to the regulator, the system operates at approximately 39 psi (269 kPa). The fuel system pressure varies with the different amounts of manifold vacuum applied to the regulator. If the pressure is not correct, record the pressure and remove the gauge.
  6. Ensure that the fuel does not leak from the fuel rail service valve. Install the protective cover onto the fuel rail service valve.
  7. If the fuel pressure reading was below the specifications, test the system according to the following procedure:
    1. Perform the fuel pressure release procedure.
    2. Install a fuel gauge C4799 and fuel adapter 6631 or equivalent in the fuel supply line between the tank and the fuel filter.
    3. Using the DRB III scan tool or equivalent, with the ignition key in the ON position, repeat the ASD fuel system test.
  8. If the pressure is at least 5 psi (1 kPa) or higher than the reading recorded, replace the fuel filter.
  9. If no change is observed, gently squeeze the return hose. If the pressure increases, replace the pressure regulator. If the gauge reading does not change when the return hose is squeezed, the problem is either a plugged inlet strainer or defective fuel pump.
  10. If the fuel pressure reading was above the specifications test the system according to the following procedure:
    1. Perform the pressure release procedure.
    2. Install fuel pressure gauge C4799 and adapter 6631 or equivalent in the fuel supply line between the fuel tank and the fuel filter.
    3. Remove the fuel return line hose from the pump at the tank. Connect pressure test adapter 6668 or equivalent to the return line. Place the other end of adapter 6668 into an approved gasoline container. A minimum of 2 gallon tank should be sufficient. All return fuel will flow into the container.
    4. Using the DRB III scan tool or its equivalent, with the ignition key in the ON position, repeat the ASD fuel system test.
  11. If the pressure is now correct, replace the fuel pump.
  12. If the pressure is still above specifications, remove the fuel return hose from the chassis fuel tubes (at the engine) and attach fuel pressure test adapter 6668 or equivalent to the return tube. Place the other end of the hose in the clean container, repeat the test. If the pressure is now correct, check for a restricted fuel return line. If there is no change observed, replace the fuel pressure regulator.

How do I check the fuel pressure


there is a schrader valve on the fuel rail, and you hook up the gauge there.

Get no fuel to the fuel rail.


Replace the Fuel Pump Relay/Fuse first and re-check for fuel at the fuel rail. If there is still none, then it is the Fuel Filter or Fuel Pump. Replace the Fuel Filter first and recheck operation. If this does not fix it, then Replace the Fuel Pump.
With a partner turning on the vehicle, and you listening to the gas tank, you should be able to hear the Fuel Pump engaging.

2000 Chevy blazer this is the 2nd brand new fuel pump I've replaced in 2 weeks,It runs a hour or two, Then sitting all night won't work in the morning.Same thing the first time . I've checked fuse ,...


Spark......EQUIPMENT NEEDED: 1) fuel pressure Gage....Advanced Auto = $45..... 2) needle nose pliers ( fuse pull )..
There is a fuel pressure access valve located on the fuel injector rail. The access port or "shraider" valve has a black or gray screw on cap. Remove the cap and you will see the valve. CAUTION: The fuel rail is under pressure....before installing the pressure gauge, relieve pressure by starting the engine and removing the fuel pump fuse from the under hood fuse box......
Once the engine quits, turn the key to the off position and safely install the pressure gauge. Put a rag around or under the access valve to catch any drizzling fuel. I always prefer to do this when the engine is cool.
Install the pressure gauge, start the engine, check for leaks and read pressure output at idle, record pressure reading.
Also, it should be checked under load but you will need another person to help.
Once you have shut the vehicle off watch the pressure gauge, it should remain steady and not leak down.
Let me know what the readings are.
Regards,
