Let'* start by checking fuel pressure. We need to know:

1. Key on (no start) for 2 seconds, repeat three times (key on, wait 2, key off, key on, wait two, key off, key on, wait two, key off). What'* the gauge say after the 3rd cycle?

2. At idle. How much pressure?

3. At idle with the vac line pulled off the FPR. What'* the pressure?
