Fuel pressure - Schrader valve location - 2003 2.3L Ford Ranger

2003 2.3L


I'm trying to get my fuel pressure gauge hooked up, but on my truck's fuel rail the Schrader valve is on the end opposite the fuel line... which puts it right under the wiring harness. It's hard to access much less attach the gauge or work the valve.



Any suggestions?

No reason you can't add an extension, must be rated to at least 100psi, and seal must be good

This page has some extensions:
Amazon Amazon

Not the main one, scroll down the page

Don't know if you need a permanent extension?
But a temporary one is fine

Thanks, think I'll finish building a smoker and really verifying there's no vac or upstream exhaust leaks first; If I'm still stumped ( P0171 ) then I'll turn to fuel system and will probably pull the IM again to get at fuel rail for real.
