Hello all,

Would someone look under their hood on a 2.5L and take a picture of their Schrader fuel relief valve and post it? I simply cannot find it! I find it easily on other vehicles, but not on my Contour (Note: please let me know if I am looking for something wrong... if, for instance, an adapter is required - i.e. is the valve not really a Schrader valve)

Thanks. Found it. Mine is actually on the other side of the MAP and for some reason pointing downwards towards the road, which is why I could not find it.

Thanks again!

Wondering if you ever found the Schrader valve. I've got the same exact model and engine as you - a '99 Contour 2.0L, and I can't find the Schrader either! My fuel pump fuse blew, and I am suspecting a clogged filter, but want to check the system pressure to verify that it's below spec. Thanks for your time.

2.0L: It's on the fuel rail near the quick connect fitting.

How do I release the pressure on the Fuel Pressure Schrader Valve? I was reading a forum and it said my car has a Fuel Rail Pressure (FRP) sensor instead of that. I need to change the fuel filter and see if I can get my car working but first i need to depressurize the lines. I'm a chick trying to do this myself so any help would be appreciated! Its a 1999 Ford Contour SE 4.0 DOHC

You can either take a small rag and a small screwdriver and depress the center shaft of the schrader while covered with a rag (to prevent fuel from squirting everywhere in the instance there is good pressure), or use a tire valve stem remover and unscrew the stem a few turns and that will release the pressure.
