If you dont see something on your fuel rail, that looks like a valve stem. Then more than likely you don't and a special adaptor is needed to go inline, between the fuel line and filter. It come with some fuel pressure tester kits.

Why did she only run for 2 days after I replaced bleeder valve?

im not sure here are you saying the fuel rail shrader valve was leaking and you replaced it ? if yes a leaking shrader valve will reduce your fuel rail pressure to the point of a non start condition its' allso extremly dangerious to have a fuel leak under hood ,Thats gasolene ya know it does burn/explode !! , i suggest going back to basics of engine diagnostics to see what the underlying problem here is air/fuel , ign , exaust there are basic tests for all these that can be done
answer could be as simple as a clogged fuel filter

Where is the bleeder valve

bleeder valve for the fuel injection is on the fuel rail
for the anti-freeze it should be on top of the thermostat housing
if not there check the pipe above the water pump

My 1988 t-bird will not start. electric fuel pump is working and has spark. it is a 5.0 EFI.fuel comes from the bleeder valve as I try to start it but will not start. can spray starter fluid into intake...

Does the fuel spray out of bleeder or run out. Should spray out with a lot of pressure. Have you checked fuel filter? If its not spraying out good and not the filter i would replace the pump.

I have a 1998 camaro 3.8 LT.Just change the fuel pump it still don't start?It seems that there is gas up tell the fuel filter but not the motor.

Find the bleeder valve on the passenger side under the hood. Turn the car over while holding down the center stem of the bleeder valve. Once fuel comes out with no air, your car should start.

The engin will turn over and start but runs only seconds

In the fuel line on the rear of the intake manifold, there is a bleeder valve with a black cap on it. Remove the cap and depress the valve while the key is on. BE CAREFUL if the fuel pump is operating correctly fuel will spray out. If there's no fuel pressure, then the fuel pump is bad.

Engine turns over but seems like not getting gas to engine

Disconnect the fuel line at the fuel rail, crank for a second if it doesn't have a bleeder valve. (looks like valve on tire) If no gas comes, change fuel filter, and check fuel pump while down there.

Stalls out like its not getting gas

the valve that you are depressing is not an air bleeder it is a shredder valve used to check fuel pressure on, you most likely need a new fuel pump
