Hello

P1186 - Fuel pressure too low

P1188 - Fuel pressure leakage

 

So the assessment of the AA would appear to be correct.

Once the leak is fixed, the codes can be cleared...

 

If you need any further information just ask

 

All the best

Expert:  Engineering Pro replied 3 years ago.
Did the AA guy use the fault codes to establish the problem or did he actually find a leak in the system? Jon

It sounds like you still have air getting into the system. The hard acceleration produces more demand for fuel and hence any leak will get worse under these conditions. Its probably best to get the local garage to pressure test the fuel system. It could be one the pipe union on the fuel lines that is leaking. It could also be that you developed 2 separate areas which are letting air in. The garage will be able to isolate the area, its not sounding like a huge fix and i would expect the garage to locate the leak in 2hrs max. But it is a leak, the engine is very sensitive to even the smallest air leak which gets into the flow of diesel and a pressure test will be the quickest way to find it, this is the better option than repeated changing of parts. Its probably worth seeing if you can mimic what the AA guy did safely though. Maybe just around the unions where you fitted the new assembly as this is most likely where the leak is... All the best... Jon
