Lower the vehicle.Fuel Pressure Relief


Tools Required


• J 34730-1A (http://service.gm.com/servlets/RetrieveTif?pic=5389) Fuel Pressure Gage
• J 42242 (http://service.gm.com/servlets/RetrieveTif?pic=68498) Fuel Pressure Gage Adapter
Caution: Refer to Gasoline/Gasoline Vapors Caution (http://service.gm.com/servlets/CellHandler?CellId=10119&RefDoc=799180&evc=sm) in Cautions and Notices.
Caution: Remove the fuel tank cap and relieve the fuel system pressure before servicing the fuel system in order to reduce the risk of personal injury. After you relieve the fuel system pressure, a small amount of fuel may be released when servicing the fuel lines, the fuel injection pump, or the connections. In order to reduce the risk of personal injury, cover the fuel system components with a shop towel before disconnection. This will catch any fuel that may leak out. Place the towel in an approved container when the disconnection is complete.
<LI type=1>Turn the ignition OFF. <LI type=1>Disconnect the battery negative cable in order to avoid possible fuel discharge if an accidental attempt is made to start the engine. Refer to Battery Negative Cable Disconnect/Connect Procedure (http://service.gm.com/servlets/CellHandler?CellId=37733&RefDoc=799180&evc=sm) in Engine Electrical. <LI type=1>Loosen the fuel filler cap to relieve the fuel tank vapor pressure.
Notice: Clean all of the following areas before performing any disconnections in order to avoid possible contamination in the system:
• The fuel pipe connections
• The hose connections
• The areas surrounding the connections

<LI type=1>Remove the cap on the fuel pressure service connection. Caution: Wrap a shop towel around the fuel pressure connection in order to reduce the risk of fire and personal injury. The towel will absorb any fuel leakage that occurs during the connection of the fuel pressure gage. Place the towel in an approved container when the connection of the fuel pressure gage is complete.
