Hi there. Check the fuel filter in the fuel line and see if its plugged. Then check the fuel pressure regulator at it controls the fuel pressure on the fuel rail. If the fuel filter and fuel pressure regulator are good and working, then there could be a blockage in the fuel line somewhere that is preventing the fuel from getting to the fuel rail. Remove the fuel line to the fuel filter and to the fuel rail. Get an air hose and apply some air to the line and see if the fuel comes out of the end. If there is no fuel coming out of the end or no air coming out of the end, then there is a blockage in the line and the line may need replace if the blockage will not come out with compressed air. If you need further assistance with your fuel system not getting fuel to the fuel rail, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
