IDE fuel pressure problems
Hi, I have a Laguna 2
and was looking for a bit of advice with relation to fuel prssure. Once the car has been idling for about 10 mins lots of lights come up on the dash and the engine will not rev over about 1800 rpm.
The scanner picks up a fault 0149 Fuel Pressure inchoerence. If yous restart the car runs normally but it does return.
In terms of live data when idling normally the fuel pressure sits at around 70bar +/- 2 bar. The fuel pressure drops to around 50-55bar when the problem arises. Assuming the sensor is operating correctly the problem is the pressure regulator right??
Can anyone confirm if the regulator on this model is the 2 pin solenoid on the cambelt end of the fuel next to the sensor??
All help and advice most appreciated.
