i guess i really have to make this post eh.

Well hello every1, thought i would join and see if i can figure out whats up with my 156 JTS.

Fuel pressure keeps dropping off when i put foot down, and im not booting the arse off it, Just general driving.

Try pull out of a busy junction/ roundabout put your foot down and it just dies a death......:cry:

Shell garage 2 mins from house.

Car is at auto elec just now, he says it could possibly be the fuel pressure pump ( think thats what he called it ha :cry: ) tiny little thing that costs 500+ .

He unclipped it off for me to see the dirt inside it and said he was gonna clean it out and try it again........but its still the same.

So if i buy this part and fit it he says not 100% guarantee that will be it :cheese:

If you drive it like your gran it will drive all day but any sort of pressure on that right foot and it dies.

i used halfords air intake and carb cleaner,easy to use and worked a treat!!
