Look along the fuel rail for a connector that screws on or has a quick connector for your gauge.

Connect the gauge and read the pressure.

I have a 09 Ford Focus 2.0 it starts fine but after 3 sec it stalls and dies,I have checked the fuel pump,coils,crank sensor. Do you have any ideas


Hook up a fuel pressure gage to the fuel pressure test port on the engine (rent or borrow, make sure you get the right test gage), see if the fuel pressure shuts off when the engine starts to stall. Also do an OBD2 fault code test on the engine control module, it requires a code reader or if you have a nearby Autozone they will read the codes for free.

I have a 97 grand cherokee larado and when I shut it off it won't start back up for a few mins..then it fires up...is there a kill switch on it or something else wrong possibly


No kill switch. You may have a fuel pump pressure issue, it may being losing pressure after shut down due to a faulty fuel pump check valve. Do a fuel pressure leakdown test, start the engine with a fuel pressure test gage hooked to the test port on the fuel supply rail to the fuel injectors, looks like a tire valve. Start the engine and run it and check for leaks at the pressure port to the test gage, repair as needed, once you are sure the test gage is leak free shut the engine down, if the fuel pressure bleeds down very quickly then you need to replace the fuel pump.

How to check fuel pressure on99 sunfire with 2.2 4 cylender


There is a fuel pressure test port on the top of the engine in the pipe )also called the rail) that sits over and supplies fuel to the fuel injectors. You will need a special test gage to hook up to the test port valve. Below is a picture of a typical GM fuel supply rail and test port.

1987 Nissan Maxima Hurd to cold start


Verify that the fuel pump is not losing pressure after you shut the engine down, hook up a fuel pressure test gage to the fuel pressure test port in the fuel rail on the top of engine and start the engine, then turn the engine off, the fuel pressure should not drop more than 5 PSI, if it does you need to replace the fuel pump.

Hello,am having problems starting my ford focus early in the morning,l need to turn the key twice to get the car to start the problem also occurs at times when the engine is hot,


I think that the electric fuel pump is bleeding off pressure due to a failed pressure check valve inside the pump outlet. You will need to watch the fuel pressure on a gage, after approx 20 minute with the engine turned off it should not loose more than a few PSI, if it does and the gage connection is leak free then you must remove the fuel tank and replace the fuel pump module. The test port for fuel pressure is in the supply rail to the engine fuel injectors, the gage is about $20-$30 US

Won't start, battery is charged


You will have to pinpoint what the engine is missing...
- Spark
- Fuel
- Compression

All three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.

Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.

Hello and welcome to Fixya.com
have you run a fuel pressure leak down test? if not you need to do this test, borrow or buy a fuel pressure test gage, they are about $12 at Kragen, the fuel pressure test port is on the top of the engine in the fuel rail that goes over the injectors, looks like a tire valve, hook up the gage and verify you have no leaks, then start the engine and turn if off while watching the fuel pressure, the pressure should not bleed down by more than 5 pounds after engine stops running, if it quickly looses pressure u will need to replace the fuel pump, this is called a leak down test, fuel pressure leak down is the #1 cause of hard starting rough running cold, other things cause it as well like a loose timing belt and worn out plugs and dirty fuel injectors, and worn engine parts, but start with the leak down and then go from there.

Owner of 2004 Ford F250. Check engine light came


Check the fuel regulator at the end of the fuel rail. If if is not functioning properly it can cause the the problem that you are describing. Unfortunately other than doing an R&R with a known good regulator I do not know of a fool-proof test for this component.

How do i check the fuel pump on my 92 mitsubishi mirage to see if its putting out enough pressure


You connect a fuel pressure gauge to it. The gauge set has many adaptors that can be used for almost any cars. It is expensive tho. That is the only way to know how much pressure it is putting out. Althou you dont really need a pressure gauge to find out if it is not putting enough pressure. Symptom of weak fuel pump,is hessitation on acceleration, Altho a malfuntioning ignition system also causes hessitation problem. If you posted exactly what the car is doing, I maybe able to help you without you having to buy a pressure gauge which is very expensive.
