PROBLEM WITH FUEL INTAKE

1997 Lexus LS 400

Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Lexus LS 400 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 165000 miles

This old car worked fine yesterday and now acts like it is not getting fuel when trying to start it. Plenty of battery power to turn the starter, if it starts, it dies despite trying to give it a little gas to rev the engine. Reminds me of similar problems caused by plugged fuel filters in older cars.

Best bet would be to locate the fuel pressure test port (Schrader valve) on the fuel rail, located on the intake manifold. This is a good place to start with a no-start situation
