With respect, I would advise strongly against doing such a thing. The port is there for a gauge to be installed, not to be depressed in a rudimentary test of spraying fuel. I understand what you are suggesting, but feel as if this act would be putting the consumer in harms way.
have you had the battery or alternator tested ? does the volt gauge go to low volts when you try to start it ?
it looks like a tire valve stem on the top side of the engine , now this is messy doing this , have someone try to start it , while taking a screw driver to the center of it like you were letting air out , to make sure fuel is being pumped to the injectors . so watch out for spraying gas !!!
did you take the dist. cap off to check for rotation? could be a broke timing belt. engine shouldn't have damage as ive replaced a few of these belts.
