If the car is off the pressure will drain off. If not, push down on the schraeder valve. that will relive the pressure. There will be some pressure left, and it will leak/drip a bit, so wear goggles!!

Not only that, protect your ears as well.. don't want gas in there.

if you're lookin at your engine... its on the left side fuel rail. a little black cap is on it. Looks like a valve stem cap from a tire.
