2011 Plate S Max Low Fuel ?? :s

20 posts in this topic

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?

Could be either side tbh.

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