Well Happy Petrol pressure sensor

I pulled onto the A249 near where i live and as I hit 5000 revs the engine warning light came on telling me to go straight to the Dealer, thinking that this was another Lamba Sensor ( 3 gone in the last 6 months) I ignored itI rang the garage and booked it in for today. on the way there the light went out but just to be on the safe side I took it in anyway and they hitched it up to the diagnostic computer and reported that the petrol pressure sensor had thrown a fit but was ok now this is a sensor that they rarely have any trouble with could just have been contaminated fuel . so all is OK for now ( holding breath)

Forewarned is Forearmed. No1 GRP Maidstone ROC Old Observers never die - they only lose the plot!

Re: Petrol pressure sensor

The JTS runs at a seriously high fuel pressure, way way over that of a normal injection system.
The JTS has been known to be sensitive to fuel quality, did you fill up at a quiet garage recently?
(i.e. somewhere where the fuel could have been sitting their tanks for a long time)
