You're a lost cause. We told you where the damn thing is, and what it looks like.

I don't know?

The schrader valve, aka tire valve, on the fuel rail is covered by a black cap. The fule line should be rather shinny and the valve and cap point up.

That's its a valve somewhere underneath the upper intake manifold ? That's helpful , I dont' even know which side of the manifold, what wire/line/tubing is the fuel run out of the hundreds there.

Throttle body is not the intake manifold. The Throttle body is where the big butterfly valve is that moderates air flow. The fuel pressure release valve is below is under a black cap on a shinny silver tube that goes right int he center of the engine below the intake manifold.

centre of the engine below the intake manifold ?

I know what the intake manifold is, its beneath the valve cover.

Are you saying I had to unscrew the valve cover and get directly *underneath* the intake manifold and depress a valve in the centre ?

Take off the flex hose that runs from you TB to the air filter. Look just under the throttle body, you should see it there. The fuel rail goes up under the intake manifold the valve is just outside. It might have a black cap on it that looks like a big tire valve stem cap.

You obviously DON'T know what the hell the intake manifold is! Cheese-us-rice!

It's the big damn nest of black snakes on the top of the damn engine. Attached to that is a silver throttle body, under that is the fuel rail tha goes under the UIM, and on that fuel rail is the valve, yes, just like on you wheels.

Crap, my girlfriend could find it if I told her, and she knows very little about cars!

Hm, k that makes it a bit clearer.

I think I'll have to clean my TB too, so I'm going to have to take it off (prepare for more posts from me lol).

I'll take a look when its off and see if I can see it. On my previous car, it was actually a small valve directly showing a couple inches from the dipstick. I thoguht it was as easy as that.

Thanks.

Chill the [censored] out.

I can't ask questions anymore ? WTF.

It's great you've got oodles of time to figure this [censored] out, I don't.

If you don't want to answer, then just stop reading the [censored] thread.
