Hi all,

 

I have a 55 reg (2005) Focus 1.8D Sport. I've got a red warning light on the dash, I've been told there is a problem with the sensor for the fuel rail?

Anybody know if this is a common fault / easy fix??

 

Thanks

It could be a duff fuel pressure sensor which means a new injector rail or as stated above just a gummed up fuel filter.
When was the car last serviced?
If it was more than 8000 miles ago I'd say give the car a full service and work from there.
It is also advisable to get the fault codes read, if a red light has flashed up them there should be at least one stored.

I got it serviced inc a new fuel filter and that seems to have sorted the problem.

 

Many thanks for the advice

The filter strikes again. :P

 

Rule 1 for a 1.8 Focus MK2- If in doubt, change the fuel filter.

Seems to work every time. :D
