Section 13.2
High Fuel Pressure

To determine if high fuel pressure is causing a lack of power, perform the following steps:‪

  1. Disconnect the electrical connector from the fuel temperature sensor.
  2. Remove the fuel temperature sensor and washer. See Figure "Disconnecting the Sensor" .

    PERSONAL INJURY

    To avoid injury before starting and running the engine, ensure the vehicle is parked on a level surface, parking brake is set, and the wheels are blocked.‪

  5. Start and run the engine to the speedsRefer to "11.8.2 Charge Air Cooler Replacement" and record the fuel pressure.

    Engine Speed, rpm‪

    Fuel Pressure, kPa (psi)‪

    600-650‪

    430 (62)‪

    2500‪

    400-650 (58-94)‪

  6. Shut down the engine.
  7. Remove the adaptor, banjo fitting, high pressure line, and high pressure gauge.
  8. Reinstall the fuel temperature sensor and new washer. Torque the sensor to 30 N·m (22 lb·ft).
  9. Connect the electrical connector to the fuel temperature sensor.
  10. Analyze the measure fuel pressure readings.
    1. If the fuel pressure is within specifications listed in Table "Fuel Pressure at Various Speeds" , check for high fuel temperature return; refer to "13.4 High Fuel Temperature Return" .
    2. If the fuel pressure is greater than specifications listed in Table "Fuel Pressure at Various Speeds" , Refer to "13.3.1 Overflow Valve Replacement" .
