Hi Dan. Thanks

This code means fuel pressure is lower then it should be which points toward a problem with the high pressure fuel pump or possibly wiring. I'd expect this repair to cost around $500-$2000 depending on what problem ends up being. The high pressure pump is about a $1500 part and a 3 hour job to replace so that is worst case scenario. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have any questions, thanks.

Ok. I'm assuming those two codes are related and not separate issues? P0090 Fuel Regulator Control Circuit and P0087 Fuel Rail/System Pressure

H​ere is information from manual related to code which will give you a idea of possible problems. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

Dan, I forgot to mention that it takes longer to start if it sits for several days.

That would probably be due to fuel pressure taking longer then it should to build up. Let me know if you run into questions, thanks.

No problem, keep me updated. Thanks.
