1 Answer


It looks like a fuel pressure gauge will have to be used. It will fit on the fuel rail next to thee pressure regulator. Check also for a damaged fuel pressure feed pipe from the pump. If it is damaged by a stone under the vehicle the pressure to the fuel line will drop. Check also the pump in the fuel tank as well. The sieve on the fuel pick-up in the tank could be fowled
