Fuel Pressure Test

Special Tools Required
Fuel pressure gauge (  07406-0040002)
 

Fuel pressure gauge attachment (  07VAJ-0040100)
 
Fuel pressure gauge set (  07ZAJ-S5A0100)
 


1.Make sure you have the anti-theft code for the radio, then write down the frequencies for the radio's preset buttons.

2.Disconnect the negative cable from the battery.

3.Remove the fuel fill cap and the engine cover.

4.Use a wrench on the fuel pulsation damper (A) at the fuel rail.

 

5.Place a rag or shop towel (B) over the fuel pulsation damper.

6.Slowly loosen the fuel pulsation damper one complete turn.

7.Remove the fuel pulsation damper from its fitting, and attach the fuel pressure gauge attachment.

 

8.Attach the fuel pressure gauge.

 

9.Start the engine and let it idle.

  • If the engine starts, go to 11.
  • If the engine does not start, go to 10.

10.Check to see if the fuel pump is running: listen to the fuel fill port with the fuel fill cap removed. The fuel pump should run for 2 seconds when the ignition switch is first turned ON (II).


11.Read the pressure gauge. The pressure should be 330-380 kpa (3.4-3.9 kgf/cm2, 48-55 psi) (KZ model: 320-370 kpa (3.3-3.8 kgf/cm2, 47-54 psi))


12.Remove the pressure gauge, and reinstall the fuel pulsation damper with a new washer. Tighten the fuel pulsation damper to 22 N·m (2.2kgf·m, 16 lbf·ft) [KT, KP, KW, IN models: 27 N·m (2.8 kgf·m, 20 lbf·ft)].

NOTE: Disassemble and clean the fuel pressure gauge attachment thoroughly after use.
