Services Performed
  • P0193 fuel rail pressure circuit – high input Found spot where harness rubbed on oil filter cap. 1 Wire has worn through and into the copper but minimally. Removed wire cover and cleaned wire, inspected and found only the 1 wire had slight damage – cleaned and taped wire separate and put some plastic protectant covering on to help not damage wire further. Tested continuity and resistance – wire is OK at this time .Cleared faults and P0193 immediately. Tested fuel pressure sensor, tested within spec (12v at pin 1, 5v and pin 2 and 3), recommend replace fuel pressure sensor and see if high input fault goes away. Wire that is slightly open is not for fuel pressure sensor so it is unrelated to faults at this time. If high input returns will need to test physical fuel pressure at rail compared to sensor reading with new sensor. Also a common issue is a bad ground in the wiring harness which can also be repaired without replacing the whole engine harness. When due for next oil change or larger repair work, recommend removing EGR and Throttle valve to perform permanent wire repair. Should be fine in the mean time with temp repair.
  • Replaced rail sensor and cleared faults. Circuit fault did not return. Nox and regen required faults returned. Performed a forced regen while standing, took a couple tries to get it started but started and completed. System is in good condition with very low measured soot content. N0X regen still required, must enable and perform during drive. Circuit fault has not returned after several test drives. DS headlight bulb out – replaced with new.
  • Performed forced regen while sitting 2x – took about 5 tries to get started but once started completed and got a "system OK" after completion both time. Lights remained on in dash for Nox limit and regen required. Performed test drive in regen parameters for 50mi, lights would not reset. Using scan tool, enabled auto regen feature and test drove for another 50+ miles until lights shut off. No faults stored after over 100mi of test driving and after regen is completed. Circuit fault has not returned.

  • TPMS light on due to failed sensor (3 and 4). Replaced headlight bulbs (both). Both bulbs now work high and low beam. Topped up oil was a tad low. Tire pressures where set WAY too high, lowered to recommended pressures on door sticker and reset tpms.

  • Changed the engine oil and filter, changed the drain plug washer and torqued it. Filled engine oil and checked level. Reset maintenance reminder, replaced windshield wipers, topped up washer fluid and all other fluids are fine. Wipers leave a streak on the way up but clear the windshield on the way down like old ones, no noise though.
  • Completed drain and fill of transmission fluid. Made sure to run through procedure and adjust fluid level at proper temperature. Test drove to make sure the transmission shifts smoothly still and it does.
  • Completed drain and fill of the front and rear differential. Made sure to replace the drain plug washers and torque the plugs. No leaks. Also drained an refilled the transfer case.
  • Completed brake fluid flush, made sure to adjust fluid level to roughly where it was upon arrival. Rotated tires and torqued lug nuts, made sure to check tire pressures.
  • Completed replacement of the front and rear pads and rotors. made sure to torque all hardware on install. Greased slide pins in the rear (there are no front slide pins). Made sure to torque lug nuts and test drive to bed the pads in.
  • Replaced all of the spark plugs, made sure to torque them to spec. No misfires or lights afterwards.
  • Cabin air filter was replaced, engine air filter was not needed yet.

  • Inspected the power steering system. Checked out the pump, reservoir and lines. Checked fittings at the rack as well. No leaks. Fluid level was right at the cold low mark upon arrival. Flushed the fluid and left it at the Cold max mark. Power steering feels better now and still no leaks.

Services Performed
  • Completed engine oil change, changed the oil filter and filter O ring. Torqued the filter, also replaced the drain plug gasket and torqued the drain plug. Filled oil and reset maintenance reminder. During inspection found that the front upper and lower control arm bushings are slightly torn causing front tire edge wear. Noticed that the front tires are a different brand of tire than the rear. No oil leaks visible on the bottom of the engine or transmission. Noticed very slight amount of dirt and fluid towards the passenger side top of the front of the engine. Does not seem to be harming anything at this time. Scanned faults in the vehicle and printed the report. Found multiple codes stored in the vehicle that would require further diagnostics.
