Titanium X Sport 240 Stalling

Recommended Posts

Evening all!

just trying to get some advice on an intermittent fault please...

2.0 petrol titanium x sport powershift 12 plate.  

approx 3 weeks ago the car cut out, exactly like stalling a manual, started up no problems but would keep stalling. Plenty of fuel in the car and it’s an auto so not driver error! 

Called out the aa. They diagnosed low fuel pressure, took it to a local garage, they had it all day and the next day, couldn’t find any faults, nothing wrong. Picked it up drove it home, no worries. Started up the next day, no problems, loaded up the car to drive to France with the family... stalled. Started up again and was fine all the way to Dover. Drove around France for 1500 miles no issues. 

Got home and it died, wouldn’t restart either, just stuck on turn over. Also wouldn’t rev past 3000rpm when in neutral. Called out AA same diagnosis, took it Keith motors, ford dealers near me. They had it all day, surprise surprise, no issues! 

Has anybody come access this issues with theirs or know of anyone? 

It only happens as sub 30mph and doesn’t make a difference if it’s semi auto, auto or sport. 

Cheers guys. Any help is appreciated and sorry for the essay! 

These are the fault codes on the reader from the AA.

That kind of issue can often be caused by a blocked fuel filter, although I'm not 100% I don't think your engine has one.  I think it has a sort of "strainer" straight off the fuel teank that is designed for the lifetime of the vehicle.

Hi. 

Well i picked it up from the garage as they could not find a fault, low and behold on the way home... stalled. Turned around and took it straight back, where it continued to play up all the way there. 

Chap from the garage came out and it did everything it has been doing to me... to him. 

He plugged it in and had it in the garage for about an hour. Garage reckon it’s one of the fuel pumps. They feel that as the fault code is low fuel pressure, then chances are it will be the rear fuel pump which is in the fuel tank. They need to strip down the fuel tank and get the pump out for the cost of 700. Or it could be the front pump (high pressure) which will be an additional 350. They seem fairly confident it’s the low pressure one.

However reading on a few forums, this problem seems quite rare but people who have had it, have gone through all the trouble of changing fuel pumps etc to great cost only to find the issues still present and it was the result of a faulty fuel pressure sensor in the engine bay. I’m going to ask if they would change that first as it appears to be a cheap part before we start shelling out £££’s!  

Has anyone come across this before? 

Any help is appreciated.

If the fuel pressure sensor isn't too expensive I'd definitely be tempted to change it 1st.  Worst case is it doesn't fix the issue but at least you have a brand new sensor which will probably outlast the car.

It's got to better than potentially paying £££ replacing pumps to find out is was just a sensor issue.
