    fuel pressure connector code not cod.

  • joe meeks Jan 18, 2013

    thanks stephen,heading to autozone to borrow the fuel pressure gauge,i dont think there were numbers on code the just said just pressure connector,.is this where i talk to you again? i should be online again at 7;30pm ty again bro

    gonna try coil pack real quick autozone dude said start there, mine is 2 years old so if that isnt it ,def testing fuel pressure around noon

  • joe meeks Jan 20, 2013

    wow,key on fuel pressure was 10 psi,with car running it maxed out at 5 psi before it it possible for it to be so low with brand new fuel pump?now it was suggested my cat convert is clogged up,car is stuck at autozone now,new coil pack gave it alittle life,now it wont idle at all.

  • joe meeks Jan 20, 2013

That trouble code is probably for low fuel pressure not a connector.
What is the actual trouble code, and have you checked fuel pressure with a gauge ?

    Not surprised. You could have put in a defective pump. Happens every day. The filter could be clogged up again too. The exhaust would not have any effect as long as fuel pressure is low. Need to fix that first.

    Take a good look at the screen on the pump when you take it out of the tank. And some water is normal condensation in the exhaust system. The cat converter "converts" several exhaust gases into H2O.

  • joe meeks Jan 21, 2013

    it must be with your theory that a defective fuel can work "ok' from a cold start but as resistance is raised from the engine warming up it becomes too week to keep pressure at 50 psi,it litterally was lingering in the 5 to 10 psi last nite at autozone engine nice n warm,so i left it there overnite,but tonite it drove pretty good homr

Check your fuel pressure, and or injectors. You may have too much fuel getting into the engine causing it to burn rich and overheat the converters.

The error P1130 and P1131 is for the fuel trim and lean fuel mixture respectively. This tells me that this may be an issue with the air fuel mixture or its reached its limits in compensating for the incorrect mixture. You could try to clean out the intake first using carb cleaner spray or tuner spray to clean out the intake and the MAF sensor which measures the air that comes in. Check also if there are leaks or gaps on the air duct found between the air filter and the intake manifold and the intake plenum. Leaks would cause the system to get an incorrect reading. If it were a faulty sensor you should get the error code for the sensor and you may have issues starting the engine up.

Check also the vacuum hoses which may be loose or cracked that needs replacing or refitting. This is also a common cause. I also do not rule out the possibility of the fuel sensors going or starting to go bad. The PCV may also need cleaning or replacing.

With all mentioned items go check first the leaks of the intake system and the vacuum lines as these are found to be common. Some leaks or cracks are minimal but is crucial to the sensors.

1999 dodge ram 5.2 runs about thirty miles then stalls after running fine just suddenly loses all power sputters backfires engine stumbling badly. crank it up 4 or 5 hours later runs a little then same...

General advice:After warming up track the problem:sparkplugs (even new can have the ceramic parts broken/cracked /wiring (after warming up the isolation get's soft,can loose spark power)/ignition coil(s) (gets hot,stop runnig),running reach,fuel pump/fuel pump relay.Best guess:fuel pump mallfunction (low pressure) related,fuel filter cloged/water in the fuel/fuel line cloged/chipped. Cheers,hope u figure it out,let the people know.

Stalling & Hesitate While Driving

Never attempt cleaning (spray cleaner) a MAF sensor or touch the element, It will damage the sensor. A dirty air filter will put the MAF sensor out of range. The only sensor subject to physical wear is the TPS (throttle position sensor) The low oil sensor will disable the ignition if more than a quart low. The crank sensor triggers the ignition and if not installed correctly will not pick up a signal(.018 air gap) Perform An OBDII scan of stored fault history before going any further to avoid buying more parts you don't need.

1990 trooper 2.8L V6 Gasoline starts hard if at all,fires then backfires then runs a few sec then dies

Have you cleaned the throttle valve and the air bypass idle speed control valve? If not do that. When they get really gummed up from backwash from the combustion process they cause this problem of stall on cold start.

I got code 171 and 174 in my mercury sable 2001 so my question is what can i do or what can i buy i mean the piece de maf or my fuel filter?

P0171 fuel lean bank 1, P0 174 Fuel lean bank 2 More likely the MAF you can correct this by cleaning the MAF but you need to use brake cleaner and you ahve to remove it from its housing (it has anti tampering screws) a vacuum leak can also cause both banks to go lean and even low fuel pressure wheter it is a filter or pumpcansmo_53.gif

Good Evening, you might want to check those injectors, I can not remember for certain but that setup was sequential and when one or two have a problem it would take out the rest. Ohm out the injectors and see what you have there.

Have a cranking noise whenever i make a sharp left then right turn, what could it possibly be? Also my fuel consumption seems quite high despite a new fuel filter, any ideas? It's a 1999 Audi A6 2.4 SE...

Check your power steering fluid level and if it has never been replaced you may want to. The tricky thing about replacing the power steering fluid is that it does not have a drain plug for the fluid. What I have done in the past was to siphon the fluid out with a turkey baster from the dollar stop since it's just going to be discarded, then replace the power steering fluid that has been removed. The serpentine belt may need to be replaced also. 
The fuel economy could be cause by many things, but the common is dirty MAF sensor, throttle body, and air filter. Clean the MAF sensor with a can of MAF sensor cleaner and the throttle body with throttle body cleaner and replace the air filter. As for the MAF and throttle body cleaner, just follow the instruction on the cans or ask the parts store for advice such as Auto Zone. Auto Zone can give you the step by step instruction do getting the job done. 
Repcap: Check the power steering fluid level and try to replace some of the fluid. Replace the serpentine belt if needed after inspection,look for cracks on the inside of the belt where the ribs are. Clean the MAF sensor and throttle body Inspect and replace the air filter if it's been in there for 1 year or 30,000 miles.
Good luck and hope this helps.
