This code is saying the fuel preasure is too high, this may be caused by a stuck fuel preasure control valve or a bad fuel rail preasure sensor, you would need to first check the valve to make sure its not stuck then test the preasure sensor, to test sensor a scan tool would be very helpful. hope this helps.

Astra randomly cuts out at lights and engine May be sluggish,randomly code is P0093,FUEL RAIL SENSOR?


This diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is a generic powertrain code. It is considered generic because it applies to all makes and models of vehicles (1996-newer), although specific repair steps may be slightly different depending on the model.
When the computer sets this code it senses a large fuel leak in the high pressure section of the engine. The ECM in a diesel always monitors and controls the fuel pressure from the fuel injector pump to the injectors as long as the engine is running.
To set a code P0093 the ECM must sense a sudden large drop in fuel pressure within the system. This drop in fuel pressure can be internal, external or caused by a faulty sensor signal to the ECM.
When this happens, the ECM sets the code, goes into fail-safe mode which will suspend the fuel injector pump operation and allow one minute to pull over before it shuts the engine down. It will remain in fail-safe mode until the key is off.
The engine may run again but investigate the problem first. This problem will not correct itself or go away. The engine could shut down at any time or speed.
Unlike gasoline engines with fuel injection pressures of 30 to 50 PSI, diesel engine fuel pressure runs up in the Megapascal range, from 4,500 to 30,000 PSI. It takes very high fuel pressure to force fuel into the high compression cylinder of a diesel.
As you progress in diagnosing the problem be always mindful of the fuel pressure when the engine is running. It is ridiculously high! You have a code P0093 stating there is a large fuel leak in the system. Use caution when sticking your nose under the hood of a running engine with this code, or wrenching on the fuel system.
Symptoms Symptoms of a P0093 diagnostic trouble code may include:
  • Code set and malfunction indicator lamp illumination (check engine light)
  • Engine will enter fail-safe mode and shut down within one minute
  • Possible large loss of power above idle
Causes Potential causes for this DTC include:
  • Fuel injector failure
  • Fuel line common rail leak
  • Fuel pressure sensor malfunction
  • Fuel pump or lift pump failure
  • Fuel heater constantly on
  • Fuel temperature sensor failure
  • Leaks at any point in the high pressure circuit
  • Electrical connector corrosion or seating problems
  • Fuel pressure regulator malfunction
  • Fuel filter plugged dropping the fuel line volume
  • Injector pump leak
  • Fuel control actuator failure
  • Cascade overflow valve malfunction
  • Short in the electrical harness at the injectors or to the ECM
  • Fuel pressure limiting valve
  • ECM failure
Diagnostic Steps & Possible Solutions
  • Start with the engine off and doing a walkaround inspection for obvious fuel leaks between the fuel tank and the engine.
  • Lift the hood and check the oil and level. If the oil level has risen, smell the oil. If it is heavily contaminated by fuel, an injector most likely failed in the open position. Do not start the engine again until the oil and filter is changed.
  • Look under the hood for leaks. Start at the injector pump and follow the fuel lines to the fuel injector rail. Look at the injectors for signs of leaks.
  • Pull the electrical connector off the fuel pressure sensor and look for fuel in the connector. A failed sensor will allow fuel up through the sensor into the connector.
  • Check when you last changed the fuel filter. A plugged fuel filter will drop the volume enough to set the code.
  • Check all electrical connectors on the sensors and wiring harness to the injectors for missing insulation, corrosion or loose connections. If no obvious leaks have been found, go online and look up the TSBs (technical service bulletins) for your year and make vehicle. Diesels have no lack of problems as the TSBs will indicate.
Look for the code and associated repair procedures and probable causes. Chevy and Dodge reads like a book. The TSBs will include recalls on various items as well.
Look at your warranty. Most diesel engines have long warranty periods for various items. Many cover injectors for 7 years or better and 200,000 miles.
The dealer is the next step if no deficiencies are found. Checking the fuel pressure and the operation of the ECM takes special tools for a diagnosis.
Tip: Diesels outlast a normal gasoline powered engine when properly serviced. But they demand service at specific intervals to operate properly. There is no free lunch with these. Do not use any seals or gaskets that are not OEM. The pressures and temperatures call for the use of certain materials resistant to these temperatures and pressures.

Kia sportage diesel acceleration problem


Do you have any check engine lights on? Most diesels have a safety feature that shuts down the engine and puts it in "limp mode" when there is a problem somewhere . It will stay in limp mode till repaired and the code cleared. You should get a code with a diagnostic.

P0087 p0088


code p0087 is pressure too low--- causes include fuel supply pipe blockage and code p0088 refers to fuel return line blockage. While you have changed every thing covered in the causes I suggest you have a look for a common point that the pipes run together that could be kinked or squashed . The low fuel pressure could be from a vacuum in the tank from a faulty cap . If the lines are rubber and run in the boot check that something like a spare tyre is not cutting off fuel supply and return

Cant find the diesel pump relay


it does not have a electric fuel pump the fuel pump is mechanical and is driven by the timing chain, it is a 2 stage pump 1st stage is the low pressure side which draws fuel from the tank 2stage is the high pressure side which supplies very high pressure to the common rail for electronic controlled injectors you have to bleed the low pressure side by drawing fuel up to the filter using a vacuum source or similar if you have changed the filter etc do not try and start the engine until you have done that or you will draw air in the high pressure side and to bleed that you will have to loosen the injector pipes and crank the engine to purge the air but once undone you should replace the pipes according to jaguar due to the very high pressures in the system for safety reasons

Lose of power and engine code po0088 comes on


Hello! Code P0088 is telling you the fuel rail pressure is to high...Most common reason is a plugged fuel filter...I would suggest, unless you have recently changed it, replacing the fuel filter first...If that does not clear the trouble I'll need the year, model and engine size to assess the problem further...

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.
