I need you to check fuel pump pressure and pressure drop off. WHat I mean by drop off is this. WHen you turn the key off, the system should maintain pressure for a given amount of time before it starts to drop. It shouldn't drop to 0 at any point.

Here are both the written directions and a videl to guide you. You will need a fuel pressure gauge. Most parts stores will lend or rent them. Keep in mind, we are looking not only at the amount of pressure made by the pump, but more importantly, how quickly it drops when you shut the key.

Let me know what you find.
