Thanks for asking your question. I will try and help you out.Code 164-11 (39) is defined as an Injection Actuation Pressure System fault. I see this a lot on these engines. This code indicates the ECM is not seeing the correct Injection Actuation Pressure.
Code 164-2 (15) is defined as injection actuation pressure is erratic.
These codes can be caused by several things.The first and most common is a faulty Injection Actuation Pressure Control Valve. Also known as an IAPCV. It has two wires connected to it and is screwed into the High pressure HEUI pump.
Second is a Faulty HEUI pump. To test a high pressure 5000 psi gauge is needed to connect to the outlet of the HEUI pump.
Third is a faulty IAP sensor
And lastly is a leaking injector.Please reply back if you need more help or have more questions. I am happy to assist.
