It should be either on the rail, or by the rail on one of the fuel lines. Hope this helps, James Booth

Ran out of gas in 2014 Taurus SeL. Added gas (plenty). Now Cranks but will not start. No problems, running well before this (replaced battery a few months back.) any quick tips/suggestions?


When you run very low on gas or even worse run it empty it overheats and can destroy the tiny electric fuel pump inside the gas tank, the pump requires fuel around it for cooling and for lubrication purposes. So I strongly suggest you check the fuel pressure at the pressure test port in the fuel injection supply rail that is over the injectors, I bet there is no pressure.

Where is it on 2002 kia rio fuel test port don't


You would have to test the fuel pressure on this vehicle by connecting to the line coming from the fuel filter to the fuel rail, there is no actual fuel test port on this vehicle. if you do decide to test the pressure... here is what your pressure readings should be>> Fuel Line Pressure 46-51 psi (320-350 kPa)
This actually sounds like a Fuel Pressure Regulator issue. I would recommend replacing the regulator and see how the vehicle responds after that..

Hope this helps...

I have a fuel pressure tester but I don't know how to check it on a 2006 Taurus with the 3.0 12v motor. I think the fuel pump is bad because sometimes the car does not start. I am unable to tell if the...


Located on the fuel rail ( silver or chrome lines holding fuel injectors) you will find a cap at one end that looks like a valve stem cover. When you remove the cover you will find a connector which resembles a tire valve stem. You will connect the fuel pressure tester to this port, and you will need a second person to help. Once connected you will want the helper to turn the key to the on position while watching the gauge. You should see a small pressure rise when the key is cycled from off to on several times. Then with the tester still attached have you helper start the car. You should see a increased pressure around 40PSI. You should check with ford for the proper fuel rail pressure. The gauge should only move about 5 pounds or so while idling.
If you do not have fuel pressure I would first suggest checking the fuel pump relay and it contacts to make sure the relay is working properly. If the relay is working and you still have little pressure the I would change the fuel filter. After that if you still have low pressure I would suggest replacing the pump.

WHAT IS THE FUEL PRESSURE SUPOSE TO BE ON A 98 GRAND CARAVAN


The fuel pressure should be 49 psi. On all engines except the 3.0 liter you can check the fuel pressure at the fuel pressure test port located on the fuel rail. On the 3.0 liter engine you can disconnect the quick-connect fuel line fitting at the fuel rail and install a fuel gauge with a (T) fitting and adapters to check fuel pressure. Start the engine and check the fuel pressure. Hope this will help.

Think it is a fuel pump relay problem


On the top of the engine U will see a metal tube that is the fuel supply to the fuel injectors, it has round sockets that fit over the tops of the fuel njectors, on that rail is test port, it looks like a metal valve stem, you will need to hook up a fuel pressure test guage to that test port, you may be able to borrow one from Auto Zone or Kragen auto free, hook it up and drive the car until it stops then see if it has fuel pressure.

The fuel filter is located underneath the car in front of the gas tank.
You have release the fuel pressure. Remove the fuel filler cap, locate the fuel test port on the fuel rail on the passenger side on the end of the right real fuel rail for a 3.1L engine.
3.8L engine yhr test port is located at the pressure regulator under the trim cover.
