Fuel Pressure Tests

A fuel injector will be unable to inject the correct quantity of fuel if the fuel pressure is not within the specifications for that vehicle. A vehicle with a computer may be able to compensate for an incorrect fuel pressure to some extent by altering the fuel/air mixture. However, this is still likely to cause driveability problems while the engine is cold. Fuel pressure tests can generally be categorized into low-pressure tests and high-pressure tests.

Your customers are not strangers to thinking about their vehicle’s fuel efficiency. With Memorial Day travel, gas prices surged upward, and many Americans found themselves putting off trips to Grandma’s for closer-to-home events.

Contaminated Fuel Can Wreck Havoc On Fuel Delivery Systems

Although cases involving contaminated gasoline are relatively rare nowaday they still occur. In many cases, the technician has replaced the fuel pump or mass air flow (MAF) sensor to address a P0171/P0174 “lean-condition” DTC with no result. In all likelihood, the technician didn’t consider the possibility that the vehicle’s fuel might be contaminated with E85 gasoline, diesel fuel, stale gasoline, or, to a lesser degree, sugar and water. The fact is that the first three fuel contaminants tend to lean out the air/fuel mixtures, while sugar and water generally cause intermittent cranking, no-start and stalling complaints.
