How do you check fuel pressure? Two days ago it started after a few attempts, but it started roughly. Then it ran for one minute a little rough than usual then it cut off. Since then its been turning but not starting.

You need a gauge to check that and it connects to the fuel rail.

You'll have ot see if you can rent a gauge from an auto parts store. They will scan the engines as well but you need to get eht car there and it 'doesn't run. If your fuel pressure is under 60 psi you need a new pump.
