Hello and thanks for choosing just answer. There is one possible repair and one that will fix it for sure. One is to have the PCM reprogrammed to the latest calibration. This calibration is suppose to repair the P0088 for returning and going into limp mode. The repair that I know for sure will fix it is a new high pressure fuel pump. There is a sensor on the fuel pump that fails. The sensor isn't servo able so you need to replace the fuel pump. I would ask who ever you bought it from is they had any idea about this concern.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.

David L.Richmond, TX

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
