i have a 2011 S-Max 2.0 Petrol. for the last 2 weeks my engine management light comes on for a couple of miles and then goes back off. it has not gone into limp mode or change any performance in the car.

 

i took it to a garage and got the fault code p2636 low fuel pressure. i am usually good with cars but with this one havent got an idea what could be the fault any ideas as it doesnt even have a fuel filter which i thought would of been the problem at 1st.

 

thanks for your time

Like you say, fuel filter is usually the culprit but not the case here.
Dirty fuel lines or crud in the fuel pump maybe?

Maybe a good flush with a fuel additive like BG44K.-

ill have a try of that tomorrow, any other ideas apart from the fuel pump just incase, if it is low fuel pressure it is before the fuel pump if i am correct not after yes?

Stoney871

Could be either side tbh.

Some cleaner through the tank won't hurt at all and may well be all you need.

ok ill try cleanin the fuel filter an fuel lines tmra, u think checkin the fuel pressure sensor mite b the prob? i just want to get all the maybe's so i can check them all at once. i got autodata to check what the reading should b for the sensor

DanGersFord
Wouldnt hurt to check the sensor. Is there any smell of fuel in/around the car?
owlass

no not a smell atall that i can notice meself, wudnt even notice ther was a prob with the car apart frm the fact the eml came on and gave that fault code so want to get it sorted before it gets any worse
