SOURCE: low fuel pressure
U 1st need to test fuel pressure at the fuel pressure test port on the top of the engione in the fuel supply rail to the injector tops, it looks like a metal tire vale stem, u will need to buy a special fuel pressure tester to do this test. U should have around 55-60 PSI at idle, it should go up when u gun the engine but never go down, if it goes down the fuel filter or pump are suspect.

From 53 reg onwards, diesel pump is under R.H. rear wheel arch, hidden by the plastic wheel arch liner. Older versions have combined fuel pump/sender in the tank (under R.H part of rear seat).
You should be able to hear a faint purr from the pump when ignition is turned on but engine not yet running.

The ford spec listed in the ford engine control manual is:
General Specifications Item Specification Fuel tank capacity 71.9L (19 gal) Fuel Pressure Hot restart 448-482 kPa (65-70 psi) Key ON Engine OFF (KOEO) 140-415 kPa (20-60 psi) Key ON Engine Running (KOER) 170-280 kPa (25-40 psi)
Are you measuring the fuel pressure with a mechanical gauge or are you using a scan tool . If with a mechanical gauge, does the gauge have an air purge? What symptoms does the vehicle present. If running rough you could have a fuel injector leaking. Are you measuring the fuel pressure with the key on engine off? If so, did you cycle the key a few times? Good luck

Check the fuel filter and fuel pressure regulator. They are part of the same assembly and are located on top of the fuel pump. To replace the regulator # Disconnect fuel supply line at the Filter/Regulator nipple and releas locking spring tab (2 in diag.) on the regulator, then turn counterclockwise and pull out. To test regulator use a gauge like this in fuel lines:Pump Pressure Tester.
Pressure in 2003 should be 58psi (48 in 2001 engines). Pressure will drop of about ten psi when you start engine.
There is also an automatic shut down relay ASR. If problem is the ASR the pressure will go down when the relay cuts off power to pump. Read voltages and see if the problem is electrical first before going for the regulator.
