Regardless of how you approach it, you should get this fixed right away. So again still thinking possibly fuel pump. Drives fine, although limited power due to the fault. What repairs can fix the P0088 code? I believe that the proper pressure is about 65 psi, which is what is showing on the gauge. What causes the P0087 code? Care should be taken when test driving a vehicle with a failing fuel pump. Tested the fuel pressure on the rail with a guage and it was reading 60-70 psi and pressure was holding pretty good after shutting off the engine.
P0088 may also be seen with codes that case misfires, lean, and rich conditions. The currently selected is for the Land Rover makes. I seen another post on a different forum where a guy had similar problems as us. This is where my mechanical naivety will be displayed. It appears that the high pressure fuel pump had been drawing from the tank without the assistance of the electric tank pump but after bleeding the fuel line while checking filters etc the high pressure pump is now unable to draw the fuel from the tank.
. The vehicle service manual should be consulted for more information on possible causes of the fault, along with required testing. This allows us to check fuel pressure at the fuel rail and then use the scan tool to check what the fuel pressure sensor is reading. Mine has the vehicle in Reduced performance mode. If the fuel pump is failing or the fuel filter becomes completely clogged, this may cause the engine to die while driving resulting in serious issues for the driver. Digging up an old thread, did this problem ever get solved? So it's probably unlikely to be the problem. So Im thinking how in the flaming hell could i apply maybe 1.
I hadn't even considered the fuel tank pump as a possibility as all the recent work had been done at the engine. Tested the fuel pressure on the rail with a guage and it was reading 60-70 psi and pressure was holding pretty good after shutting off the engine. It had actually thrown this code one or two other times late last winter but it went away on it's own in a few minutes and didn't go into restricted performance. These can range from a faulty spark plug lead, shorted kill switch or flywheel key damage. I seen another post on a different forum where a guy had similar problems as us. I hear a crank sensor might be the cause??? An advanced scanner is also needed to monitor fuel pressure sensor data. What causes the P0088 code? We have been driving for a little over 2 hours and it was warm out that day.
I'm at a loss for what to do next. If your spark plugs look good, problems with your ignition system can also preventing a spark. The solution is here : Land Rover Range+Rover P0088 Possible Solution : Disconnected, dirty or fouled spark plugs are common causes for engines that won't start. This can happen for multiple reasons and a mechanic needs to diagnose the specific cause for this code to be triggered in your situation. I believe that the proper pressure is about 65 psi, which is what is showing on the gauge. Fuel rail pressure was showing 130psi on scanner with actual around 83ish. These vehicles will only be equipped with the fuel screen that is attached to the fuel pump.
I was assuming that there was only the one fuel pump. I thought this ole girl was gonna be a glorified escape like the older freelanders were until i popped the hood and saw the 3. This code is similar to P0087. This time, over the weekend, it went into restricted performance three times and the light has stayed on. You should also check that the spark plug gap is set properly. As a side note, while I was with the mechanic today he had removed the fuel filter looking for brass that may indicated fuel pump damage resulting from the overheating but as far as I'm aware he didn't find any. Tested the fuel pressure on the rail with a guage and it was reading 60-70 psi and pressure was holding pretty good after shutting off the engine.
The engine light came on and we stopped the vehicle and had it towed to the nearest dealership. By posting the year, make, model and engine near the beginning of your help request, followed by the symptoms no start, high idle, misfire etc. Some vehicles may not be equipped with an external fuel filter. However, an oxygen sensor is easy to replace on many cars and is usually detailed in the owner's manual. YourMechanic offers certified mobile mechanics who will come to your home or office to diagnose and repair your vehicle.
Thanks Was getting P0087 low fuel rail pressure. There is an electric pump in the tank which supplies fuel to the belt driven mechanical pump on the back of the engine. You should also check that the spark plug gap is set properly. Cheers Steve Could the fuel filter be overdue for replacement? We shall see if it happens a second time! The problem now is that on test driving, the vehicle will get to around 95 to 100k with the foot planted but then dies and goes into limp mode. How serious is the P0088 code? I wondered if the anyone knows about the software upgrade and if it addresses this issue. If the fuel pump is failing it may do so when driving causing the vehicle to die while driving or not be able to be restarted.
M1rc, I've never had the codes that you are getting, however I do have some information that might be helpful. When the engine starts cold it takes some cranking to get started and will surge, but when it warms up will idle good. So I figured not to bother changing it and just drive it as is. This high fuel pressure is detected by the fuel pressure sensor located on the fuel rail. Spark plugs typically need to be replaced every season or 25 hours of use. When the engine starts cold it takes some cranking to get started and will surge, but when it warms up will idle good.
