Remove the engine cover.
Remove the Schrader valve cap and attach the fuel pressure gauge.
Slowly open the manual valve on the fuel pressure gauge and relieve the fuel pressure. This will drain some fuel out of the system. Place fuel in a suitable container.
Don't have a fuel pressure gauge? Do these steps instead..
Remove the fuel pump fuse from the engine compartment fuse box.
Start the engine and allow it to idle until it stalls.
After the engine stalls, crank the engine for approximately 5 seconds to make sure the fuel injection supply manifold pressure has been relieved.
Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
When fuel system service is complete, install the fuel pump fuse.
It may take more than one key cycle to pressurize the fuel system. Cycle the ignition key and wait three seconds to pressurize the fuel system. Check for leaks before starting the engine.
Start the vehicle and check the fuel system for leaks.
