October 21, 2020 P0093 Code: Fuel System Large Leak DetectedDiagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0093 stands for “Fuel System Large Leak Detected.” This code is triggered once the vehicle’s powertrain control module (PCM) detects the possibility of a large fuel leak. On vehicles with diesel engines, the leak is often detected on the high-pressure side of the engine. The code October 14, 2020 P008A Code: Low Pressure Fuel System Pressure – Too LowDiagnostic trouble code (DTC) P008A stands for “Low Pressure Fuel System Pressure- Too Low.” This trouble code sets when the powertrain control module (PCM) has detected that the fuel pressure is too low within the low fuel system. In some cases, low fuel volume or insufficient flow may also trigger October 14, 2020 P0089 Code: Fuel Pressure Regulator PerformanceOn some vehicles, this code is defined as “Fuel Pressure Regulator 1 Performance”. The “regulator 1” in this code’s definition refers to the designated 1 fuel pressure regulator. Designation is typically used in systems that have multiple electronic fuel pressure regulators. In some cases, the designation may refer to the August 24, 2020 P0087 Code: Fuel Rail/System Pressure Too LowDiagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0087 stands for “Fuel Rail/System Pressure Too Low.” It may get logged by the PCM when the pressure inside the fuel rail or the fuel system dives below the minimum levels needed to supply the engine with enough fuel to run properly.
