Low fuel rail pressure usually indicated a new fuel filter is needed.

Under light throttle the car/van will run fine but as soon as you give it the go pedal it cuts out as fuel cannot get through quick enough.

Regular fuel filter changes are a must and a quality one too. :D :D :driving: :driving:
