The Schraeder valve on the 3400 is on the passenger side of the engine, just beneath the upper intake manifold. Just unscrew the plastic cap and push the pintle. You might want to hold a rag near the valve, leaving room just to push the pintle with a screwdriver, because fuel will splash out. Also, use two open ended wrenches to unscrew the fuel filter, so you don't twist the line.

I got it done. i had a hell of a time loosening the nut. It was so rusted. I ended up rounding it off a little bit. i should of had one of them wrenches for gas/brake lines. The car started much better then normal first try. Normally it would crank for a few seonds most of the time. hopefully this will help my mileage problems.

Flare nut wrenches are the s**t, I HAD to use them to do my brake lines, I tried a normal wrench and I just ended up rounding nuts.
but another way to relive fuel pressure, even tho you already have your filter replaced. is pull the fuel pump fuse, and start the car, it'll run out of gas since there is no pressure sending any to the motor, and wala, no more pressure. might still have a little residual, but even using a fuel pressure gauge to relive it, you'll have some residual pressure.
