i have an ed V8 falcon. Havent driven it for 3 weeks but have been starting it once a week just check things, started it up this afternoon, it idled for about 10 seconds and shut off and did this about 5 times. i disconnected the battery and checked a few things and tried again. it ran for about a minute but the revs dropped every now an then and it shut off. I tried it about 2 hours later and it did the same thing. any ideas on my problem? any help would be great thanks. oh and it kept shutting off when it was reved to about 1500

Well it sounds like your pump is dying. So undo the schrader valve on the rail and see if any fuel squirts out after it stalls.

Front left of the fuel rail as you look from the front of the car to the engine bay. It should have a black cap like a biclcye tire does on it, remove that and then test the valve.
