That piece on the rail is there to smooth out pressure fluctuations NOT for access to check pressure...

Fuel pump cycles to maintain the pressure the computer is currently calling for (non-return system), so a std. pressure test is NOT indicated....

Unless there is NO pressure & the car doesn't run of course.....

Give us some symptoms for WHY you want to check, and we can probably help...

LOTS of good people with knowledge of these cars on here....

Luck!
