It's 2003 mercury sable 3.0 how do i check fuel pressure

I'm not familiar with your car, but I use a kit like this

If you don't need an actual reading a quick undo and redo of one of the fuel line connections can tell you as when under pressure the fuel will start coming out. Obviously this needs lots of precauction as there will be fuel spillage, so take care, especially if engine hot and that's where your working.

Easy way of this check is at the filter. Loosen the bolt a bit, turn car on, but don't start it. Fuel should leak from the loose connection for a few seconds whilst the pump primes then should pretty much stop. If it leaks like this, you have pressure, just don't know how much. Obviously remember to tighten the bolt back to spec and clean up any spillage before starting the car - major fire hazzard if you don't!

Stay safe

The problem started with uphill acceleration. Car started stuttering. It got steadily worse to where it did the same on passing. Then the idle got rougher. Any ideas ? 2001 Mercury Sable 24 valve .

may need a tune up, if that does not fix the problem then it may be in the fuel system, fuel filter injector lines or pump. I would start with a tune up as this should fix the problem. Hope this helps Tim

2002 Mercury Sable-shakes with acceleration

You describe this as an acceleration problem however, if the car does throw a check engine light it should be recorded in system memory so it can be pulled by scanning with and OBDII scanner. It sounds as if the car is being starved for fuel on acceleration. Check the fuel lines for kinks as well as check the fuel pressure. The problem could be a faulty fuel pump that has yet to completely die.
