Fuel pump relay is in cavity A in the rear SAM ( Signal Acquisition Module.) on the left hand side of the trunk behind a door.

When did you check the voltage..... you must read it while cranking or you will get a zero voltage reading.. The low pressure tank pump builds pressure to the high pressure pump and then shuts down until a pressure drop is sensed in the low pressure line and it then starts up again.

If rail pressure is too low, it often is the high pressure pump in the engine or the relief valve in the fuel rail. The tank pump is low pressure just to stop the tandem pump from cavitating by sucking too hard.

Mercedes can check the rail pressure and do an injector pressure drop to rule out a leaking injector.

If the tank pump is bad it will require replacement.

who did a conversion on this truck???? the duramax is a common rail engine and can not handle wvo or sve. it will destroy your entire fuel system in no time on this truck. if you want to do a vo conversion you need to get a diesel with an inline injection pump or one of the older powerstrokes. i would suggest you quit trying to run wvo through this truck if you do not want to do a lot of very expensive damage

Possible problem with the alternator not putting out enough voltage. I had the same problem with my 2002 XC70, putting in a new alternator fixed it. I used a local mechanic who I found on the car talk web-site. Low Cost Volvo parts can be purchased at FCP Groton.

it needs a cat converter to enable the ECM to function properly next low fuel pressure can be from EVAP system not venting the tank properly, failing fuel pump or faulty pressure regulator unloading too much fuel and dropping the pressure

You may have pressure in the system, but the system will only work properly within a narrow pressure range - too low or too high will cause problems. Have the fuel pressure checked over several operating conditions (pressure too low is usually the pump or a rubber connector in the fuel line collapsing under high engine load, too high is usually the regulator).

What would cause a combination of P0304 and P2293 OBD codes on a 2007 Passat 2.0T?


P0204 is miss fire detected on #4 cylinder.

Below is TSB from VW on your problem...a common one.


Technical Product Literature Transaction No.: 2015153/1
MIL ON, DTC P0087, P1093 or P2293 Stored in ECM Fault Memory Release date: Jun 29, 2007
Condition
15 07 04 June 29, 2007 2015153
MIL ON, DTC P0087, P1093 or P2293 Stored in ECM Fault Memory
MIL ON with the following DTCs may be stored in ECM fault memory:
DTC Description
P0087 Fuel Rail / System Pressure - Too Low
P1093 Fuel Trim 2, Bank 1 Malfunction
P2293 Fuel Pressure Regulator 2 Performance

Technical Background
Excessive wear of intake camshaft lobe that drives the high pressure fuel pump. The wear limits maximum pump piston lift, causing fuel rail pressure fluctuations.
The wear on the camshaft lobe can also lead to wear on the base of the high pressure fuel pump cam follower.
Production Solution
Increase surface hardening of camshaft lobe for the high pressure fuel pump
Improved intake camshafts have Part No. 06F109101B.
Service

• Remove the high pressure fuel pump and visually inspect:
1. Base surface of the cam follower -6- in contact with the camshaft lobe.
2. Tip of the high pressure fuel pump plunger.
3. High pressure fuel pump camshaft lobe.

If the base of the cam shaft follower looks like -C- or -D-, no excessive wear is present.
Cam follower and camshaft should not be replaced.
If the cam follower base surface is excessively worn so that its surface is concave -B- or missing -A-, inspect the intake cam shaft lobe for wear.

cam.jpg

If the high pressure fuel pump camshaft lobe shows excessive wear, replace the intake camshaft with Part No. 06F109101B and the cam follower with Part No. 06D109309C, see Group 15 Engine - Cylinder head, Valvetrain in ElsaWeb.

Inspect the tip of the high pressure fuel pump plunger for excessive wear.
If excessive wear is found the high pressure pump must also be replaced, see Group 20 Fuel supply in ElsaWeb.
Tip:
High pressure fuel pump plunger damage is only possible if the cam follower base has a hole in it and the plunger tip has come in direct contact with the camshaft lobe.
If no excessive wear can be found in the high pressure fuel pump cam follower or intake camshaft lobe, or if the damage is found in camshafts with part number 06F 109 101 B, create a Technical Assistance Contact Ticket under the Concern Type Engine and Engine Electronics in ElsaWeb.
Attach the complete diagnostic log to the contact, and call the VW Technical Assistance Center for further assistance.

Hi. I have a 2003 Ford Focus LX. A few weeks ago, I was driving back to Florida from South Carolina. About six hours into the drive, my car stopped accelerating. I would push down on the gas pedal and...


Diagnostic Test code (DTC) P0191 has a generic description which reads "Fuel Rail Pressure (FRP)Sensor Circuit Performance"

This code sets when the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) is monitoring the fuel rail pressure sensor signal under certain driving conditions. The FRP sensor varies return voltage to the PCM to indicate the fuel pressure at the fuel rail on the engine. DTC P0191 sets when the voltage received from the FRP is above or below the expected "range" or "threshold".

The possible causes of this code are:

> High fuel pressure
> Low fuel pressure
> Damaged Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor (FRP)
> Excessive resistance in FRP circuits.
> Low or no fuel

With all of that said, I would recommend that if you have more than 30,000 miles on your current fuel filter, I would try that FIRST. Replace the filter and clear the code. If the code returns, then diagnostics will need to be performed to find the actual cause.

Engine cuts out under load & glow plug light flashes


Lack in fuel pressure picked up by fuel rail pressure sensor hence flashing glow plug light, there is more than one pump on this vehicle so a fuel pressure test is required to pin point, it could even be the FRPS itself. Quite a popular fault on common rail diesels.

Service engine light on showing code p0089


Diagnostic trouble code P0089 - The ECM commands the Bosch high-pressure fuel pump to deliver a specific fuel rail pressure - that can vary up to 23,000 psi depending on load and speed. The actual pressure is monitored via the fuel rail pressure sensor. If the fuel rail pressure varies more than desired or if commanded fuel pump flow is 100mm3/second or less, DTC P0089 will set.

Corrective action includes measuring the fuel rail pressure using a Tech II scan tool, then compare that to commanded fuel rail pressure with the engine running at 2000 rpm. The difference must be less than 20 Mpa.

A blockage in the fuel tank or plugged fuel filter could cause this fault (excessive vacuum in fuel line). If there is less than 5 in Hg of vacuum when measured at the fuel pressure test port at 3000 rpm, the fuel pressure regulator could be defective, and may need to be replaced. The fuel pressure regulator (FPR) is a sub assembly located on the Bosch high-pressure fuel pump.
