I think you may need to reset the computer. I know this is an issue with changing the fuel pump out in Honda's and other cars.

When you hook the pressure test guage to shrader valve on fuel rail what it reads is what the pressure is from pump, around 60 p.s.i. all you need to do is hook up the guage and turn on key, you do not have to turn engine over, and if pump is good it will shoot up to 58 or 60 right now.

the fuel pressure if leaking could cause this the regulator is located under the intake plenum but you should smell gas .if you dont then most likely the pump is bad ,the pump will come on for 2 seconds when the key is on then go off it will not stay on with just the key on only when you crank it will it .so have your fuel pressure checked with a gauge.

Fuel pump works, new filter, gas is coming out past filter but not getting to the Compression tester. I changed the vacum valve on the gas rail. What next?


The presence of fuel isn't enough.

Fuel must be delivered in sufficient quantity at a sufficient pressure and this can only be checked with a fuel pressure test and a volume delivery test.

I have air in my fuel rail and don't know why....Help please.


presumable this is a diesel in which case the air will be coming from a leak in the line /filter/ or pick-up in the tank (low fuel level)

From your saying looks like you have a feeding problem. Do you hear the fuel pump working? if it is working check by using the fuel pressure tester how much is the flowing pressure and if it is in the recommended pressure flow. Also check even after the fuel filter if the fuel is flowing into the rail and the pressure regulator is working. Last check if your injection system is working ,if the ecu sends a message to the injectors to work.

You don't pressurize anything
You didn't have to change the filter either

You need to check to see if the fuel pump
comes on at all,in the start position when cranking

If you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail on engine

If not then the fuel pump may have failed

Also, do you have a crank signal, spark,etc

Have it taken to a repair shop

My 2000 chevy S10 wont start I changed the battery and it ran fine for 2 days now it will turn over but won't start


Check Fuel Pressure. First turn key to on position (without starting) and listen for the fuel pump motor. If no motor sound, your fuel pump is not working. Check fuel pump fuse and relay. If fuel pump works, check for pressure at the fuel rail (schrader valve on fuel rail for pressure testing). If no pressure, or not enough, fuel filter might be clogged or fuel pressure regulator may not be working properly. IF fuel is not the problem, start checking electrical, such as ignition control and proper spark to plugs.

Car just turns over wont start


When you turn on the key, the fuel pump runs for one second to bring the pressure in the fuel rail up to spec. If it does not do this, the car won't start. Have the fuel rail pressure tested. It should be between 35 and 40 PSI. Suspect the fuel pump relay. There could also be ignition problems, but make sure this pressure is ok first.

Had one of these drive me crazy. That one was the fuel pump. Pumped OK, but let the pressure back into the tank and let air into the fuel rail. Once engine had cooled,the pump purged the air out of system. Have someone check the fuel pressure when it does not start. If check valve is bad,there will be lots of air in the fuel rail. Second most likely cause is crank sensor going bad.It becomes heat sensitive on the way out.
