fuel pressure is a valve kinda loos like a bicycle tire valve on the fuel rail that feeds the injectors, you will have to by or borrow a gauge capable of reading 40-50 psi. the regulator is a disk shaped thing with a vacuum tube coming out of it

Well, tried to get to the parts store before heading to Boston today. Car won't even leave the driveway. It turns over and catches for a few seconds, then stalls immediately. I'm convinced you guys are right about pressure, but I can't even leave the house to get to the parts store to buy the tool to verify that it'* the issue. I tried tapping the fuel pump and nothing happened. It'* running. Not sure where to find the fuel pressure regulator. I looked all over the top of the engine. Either it'* different from what someone posted or I'm just not seeing it. Either way, today I'm losing my mind with this car!! I have places to be and no way of getting there.

So, went into the trunk access panel. I found the previous owner used drywall screws and washers to hold down the fuel pump. The metal tabs that used to do this job had been peeled back. I was just notified that the tank in these cars is plastic, and now I'm F#%ked. Nice to know a week into owning this car. So I have to buy a new tank and tear out the suspension. No thanks. Any other suggestions?
