      I would get a fuel pressure gauage and test the shrader valve (looks like a bike tire valve) on the fuel rail. This will tell you if your fuel pump and/or fuel pressure regulator is working.

      It could be the pump - or regulator - or even the filter, or on Fords, sometimes the igniton module will also make it act up like that.

      For a quick dirty test of the fuel psi, just get a cheapy tire guage (one of the round dial types) they will show you what you are running for psi on the fuel rail (schrader valve on there for testing). Make sure you get the fuel rail schrader - not the air conditioning one... That would make for a suprise... :eek:

      (not just a little suprise either, if you tested the A/C line like that. Get that crap in your eyes, and you can cause temporary or permanent blindness, apparently.)

      Don't be afraid to test the fuel line that way - it's no big deal, and you will not get sprayed... Just make sure it IS the fuel line.

      The A/C lines are different...

      The fuel rail runs to the injectors - and it is easy to spot.
