I ve got a 2003 bantam which do not want to start. I have change all filters and new plugs. There is spark on the plugs. very few petrol coming through fuel line. I can hear the fuel pump going on. How can I test the fuel pressure without a gauge.

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
