2007 dodge sprinter code p0087

P0087 is a low fuel rail pressure code. One of 2 likely causes. the quick diagnosis is to turn the key into the "on" position and listen for the fuel pump hum. If there is a hum, but the van doesn't start, I would then check the fuel filter. in between 80k and 100k miles, some of the sprinters run into a fuel filter issue where the fuel is too restricted to flow to the injectors properly. If you don't get enough fuel through the injectors, the engine will rotate, but not get enough vapor concentration to start.

Toyota lucida hard to start most times. occasionaly ok. 2.2 diesel. everything seems to work as should

in cold weather diesel gels up and sometimes causes a no start issue..a cetane fuel additive helps with this issue. if temps go below 20 degrees, add a quart per tankful of cetane to the fuel to help start on cold mornings. also diesels require more amperage to crank than gas engines do..thus a stronger battery is needed..

2003 Mercedes-benz Sprinter cdi 316 cuts out and doesn't start

Hi, My thoughts exactly ( fuel leak). Is this a deisel or gas engine?
In both cases be very careful with lights or cigarettes.
You can smell it when you get out of car in a garage or stall.
Good luck.

It has been very cold..but i plug the truck in every night, the last three days in the morning my fuel filter light comes on and the truck dies out and wont run right. I added Haws anti gel but it still...

make sure you have at least half a tank when it gets below 20 degrees because when it is cold fuel is more dense and this added density makes the engine work harder when starting also if you havent replace the fuel filter

7.3 is not idleing corectly

you may have an injector stopping up. is it super cold where you're at? the fuel may be trying to gel up. if cold,run anti-gel with fuel but follow instructions to the letter with anti-gel as if too much with fuel,can burn hole in top of a piston.if not cold,add a small ammount of transmission fluid to your fuel to lube the fuel injectors,small ammount is 1/4 of a quart to 20 gallons of deisel fuel.7.3 are funny at times it may smoke just a little at first but will adapt.have worked on 7.3 alot in marine corps great motors thank you for choosing
