Special Tools Required

- Fuel Pressure Gauge 07406-004000B

- Fuel Pressure Gauge Attachment Set 07AAJ-S6MA150

- If the engine starts, go to step 5.

- If the pump does not run, do the fuel pump circuit troubleshooting (see page 11-301).

5. Read the fuel pressure gauge. The pressure should be 333-382 kPa (3.4-3.9 kgf/cm2,48-55 psi).

- If the pressure is OK, the test is complete.

- If the pressure is out of specification, replace the fuel pressure regulator (see page 11-323) and the fuel filter (see page 11 -324), then recheck the fuel pressure.
