I thing it was P0251 and P1211 fault codes

Hi Shema ,no worries and good afternoon to you

Ok the fault codes p0251 and p211 are fuel metering control fault codes which are commonly logged together

These fault codes are logged whennthe fuel pressure is + or - 50 bar of the desired value

The first thing that must be done before progressing is to replace the fuel filter as a partially blocked filter is the most common cause of This issue and codes

If the fault persists after fuel filter replacement then the injectors must be tested for excessive leak off which in turn cause a drop in fuel pressure under acceleration and is common on higher mileage vehicles to suffer worn injectors

If you need any further help or advice on this issue shema going forward please let me know and I will do my upmost to assist you

I replaced 4 brand new injectors. And there isn't problem with fuel filter. So I think about fuel pump, can be?

Hi Shema

Ok if the fuel filter is ok and the injectors leak offs are ok (which they should be if the injectors have been replaced ) I would double check the leak offs in case the injectors are reconditioned etc

Then the next thing to be suspect is the fuel metering valve on the pump (this has a brown 2 pin multiplug ) attached to it and controls the amount of fuel transferred to the high pressure part of the pump

If this is sticking it can cause this issue
