find the gas tank and follow the lines comming off of it to the fuel filter. there should be a rubber hose on each side of it.undo the hose clamp on the botton side and install a fuel pressure valve(you can buy one at a parts store).after it is installed turn the key on(if it is fuel injected,you should here the pump running for about 10 seconds and shut off)if it has a carberator,you have to try to start the engine to get the pressure.the pressure should read between 32-35 psi.after you find your pressure reading be sure to hook everything back up so your car will start again.

Check your fuel pump, it could be that it is still getting electricity after you shut off the key.

you need to check your transmission fluid, if that is alright then you need to get it rebuilt
