Customer Question
Hi I have 2...
Hi I have 2 04 plate nissan x trails 2.2 dci sports in, both with the same problem, we changed the fuel filters as both were blocked, on a code read we found fault code P0089, if you leave the car ticking over for more than two mins it will go into limp mode, but if you just start it and drive it is fine, i disconnected the battery for the weekend to reset the learned values but still the same.

Any more info needed then please contact me.

Good afternoon, I hope I can help you.

 

P0089 indicates a mechanical fault with the fuel pressure regulator. I would suggest that whatever blocked the fuel filters so badly has also damaged the regulators.

 

You may also have damaged pumps and contaminated all the fule lines and fuel tank.

 

Can you tell me what blocked the fuel filters.

 

My name is XXXXX XXXXX if you need further help, just ask.

The filters were just blocked with the normal rubbish, when i removed the fuel pressure sensor there was sum very fine black residue. but could not find any large amounts, when i changed the filter i removed the filter housing for inspection, all seemed to be ok. i can't see that its the pump as it goes to well, and both off them have the same fault, all fine when driveing but when left on idle its goes into limp.

Before you replaced the filters, were they both running fine.

 

Were the filters just needing changed or were they actually blocked and stopping fuel getting through.

 

A lot of manufacturers are having trouble with common rail diesels. What happens is that the pump wears badly and causes blockages with the fuel system. Some people are having to replace the entire fuel system because of the damage. You should look for tiny metal particles in the bottom of the filter chamber.

 

Your fault of it being ok when driven but in limp mode when idling is consitant with contamianted fuel pressure sensor.

one of them was stalling, the other was going into limp when engine working hard, both main faults were fixed by changing the fuel filter but not this nagging fault, I will remove the pressure regulator next week when it comes back in and check for dirt.

I still don't think its the main pump, as all of the pumps i have done have had starting faults or cutting out.

I think like you said either pressure sensor or the pump regulator.

Ther seems to be a lot of these with this fault.

Here's hoping it is just sensor as pumps are expensive and needing 2 of them will really hurt.

I now what you mean, customers don't understand what is involved in these common rail injection systems. Both of these are Farmers as well. need i say more!

Will let you now what i find.

It may help you later on as this seams to be a big fault on these.
