When you stated you replaced both rail sensors, are you referring to the ones at the front and rear of the Fuel Rail? Did you replace the COMPLETE fuel rail or just the two parts on either end of the fuel rail??

I see that you answered my above question on a NEW question. Keep in mind that it is NOT necessary to open a new question on every response. Post all responses to this same question to avoid confusion...

Since you replaced the two parts separately from the fuel rail I am going to let you know that it is NOT recommended to replace the Fuel Pressure Solenoid (the one at the rear of the fuel rail) separately. The torque spec is CRITICAL on installation of this part. Due to this it is HIGHLY recommended to replace the Fuel Rail ASSEMBLY in cases where the Fuel Pressure Solenoid is faulty.. When you purchase the Fuel Pressure Solenoid from the dealer it AUTOMATICALLY comes as a COMPLETE Fuel Rail Assembly.

This is definitely something to keep in the back of your mind in case you can't find any other causes...

By chance has there been other work done where the engine was removed or the wiring for the injection pump and air inlet tube had to be removed? I have seen issues where there are a couple connectors that can get crossed and cause problems... Here is a pic showing the two connectors in question, check this also to make sure they are not crossed... --->> Click Here to view <<---

Keep me posted...

Thank you,
