      I am trying to locate the fuel rail schrader valver.

      My little brother's X will not start so I am trying to help him get it fixed via phone and e-mail. He is having a hard time locating the schrader valve to do a fuel pressure test. I don't know if he is just too lazy to get in there and find it or is just unsure of what he is looking at. If someone could get me a pic that I could e-mail to him that would be a big help. I have found some through searching but most of them are close ups, I think my brother needs a wider shot to get him oriented.

      Thanks.

      Look foward on the fuel rail and a little toward the driver's side.

      Thanks but I really need a pic to send to him.

      I honestly don't know what his problem is but I don't even think he has found the fuel rail yet.....:crazy:

      As viewed from the driver's side with the intake plentum removed on the SOHC engine. The valve typically has a blue cap over it and sits near the oil fill cap, the CPS (camshaft position sensor), and the EGR valve.

      Thanks guys.

      I have a view of it on both motors now. I will e-mail it to him and hopefully he can figure out which one he has.

      Thanks again I really appreciate it.

      Oh and BTW, if the vehicle is a 95, then its the OHV because the first year we see the SOHC is in the 1997 model.
      In other words, the picture I posted is useless to the OHV engine - doh!

      He's got an OHV. It's by the coil pack, kinda.
