What causes high fuel pressure?

What causes high fuel pressure?

Causes of High Fuel Pressure As we discussed, high fuel pressure means that the air to fuel ratio is off-kilter. The causes for this imbalance of fuel pressure typically include either a bad fuel regulator or a clogged return line.

What does too much fuel pressure mean?

High fuel pressure results in a rich air-fuel ratio because the increase in pressure forces more fuel through the injectors than required. It also causes black exhaust and high emissions (HC’s). These excessive hydrocarbons overheat and damage the catalytic converter. Use a fuel pressure gauge to test fuel pressure.

Can a bad fuel pressure regulator cause high fuel pressure?

A faulty fuel pressure regulator may result in fuel pressure that is too high and a rich running condition. Alternatively, a bad fuel pressure regulator can also result in fuel pressure that is too low, causing a lean condition.

What kind of fuel pressure does Trafic Vivaro have?

Iv checked that the Solonoid on the pump has 12v when ignition is on and is buzzing away like it should. have you checked the pressure sensor/cables on the injection rail/high pressure pipework?

What is a solenoid valve in a Vauxhall Vivaro?

A solenoid valve is a valve that is controlled electrically, so it closes or opens a certain circuit (hydraulic circuit) when given power supply (electrical) or not. You need to check the fuel metering, and the pump mechanical connection to engine.
