there is no port to check pressure on those tbi's...there is a tool you can goes where the fuel filter is,then you screw onto that.
do you hear the pump run for 2 seconds when the key is turned on?

Argon, Thanks for reply, yes, when truck starts the pump runs. but it takes my wife to listen when I turn on key, when it doesn't start ,I can't hear because of dash alarm, don't really want to discon. it , because I sometimes forget to turn off headlights with PA., new wipers on / headlights on law
