ok so heres the fuel pressure solver. go buy an oil pressure testing guage. they are sold at auto parts stores, craftsman makes one, snap-on has an expensive one. Then locate the little fitting on the passenger side fuel rail. It is located between #3 and #4 injectors. Unscrew the protective cap and remove the valve core with a valve core removal tool (the one for tires). Find a fuel line that fits the now open nippel and secure it with a clamp. Remember 36 psi is not somthing to play with so be very carefull when removing the valve core. Push somthing into the hole and release the pressure first. Then adapt the fuel line to fit the oil pressure guage. ONCE AGAIN FUEL UNDER PRESSURE IS DANGEROUS. DON'T TAKE CHANCES WITH YOU LIFE OR YOUR CAR.
KEEP A FIRE EXTINGUISHER AND A BUDDY TO OPPERATE THE KEY SWITCH IN AN EMERGENCY.
Another note, find an oil pressure guage that excepts more than 60 psi. this way you can use it on higher pressure fuel injection systems if needed.
