Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: Fuel Rail / System Pressure - Too Low (P008700)

Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual / Engine / 2gr-fks Engine Control / Sfi System / Fuel Rail / System Pressure - Too Low (P008700)

DESCRIPTION

The high-pressure direct injection fuel system consists of a spill control valve, check valve, fuel relief valve, fuel pressure sensor, fuel pump assembly (for high pressure side) and fuel injector assemblies (for direct injection). The spill control valve adjusts the return volume of high-pressure fuel. The check valve mechanically opens and closes the paths to the fuel delivery pipes. The relief valve releases the fuel back to the fuel tank if there is a malfunction in the high-pressure fuel system. The fuel pump assembly (for high pressure side) is installed to the cylinder head cover (bank 1) and operated by a cam installed to the end of the exhaust camshaft.

Rotation of the camshaft moves the pump plunger inside the fuel pump assembly (for high pressure side) up and down, pressurizing the fuel. The pressurized fuel opens the check valve and is pumped into the fuel delivery pipe. The ECM controls the spill control valve to adjust the fuel pressure between 2 and 25 MPa (20 and 255 kgf/cm2) and monitors signals from the fuel pressure sensor (for high pressure side) to maintain the target fuel pressure.

P008700

Fuel Rail / System Pressure - Too Low

Although the ECM is not requesting the fuel pump assembly (for high pressure side) to open the spill control valve, fuel pressure decreases 5 MPa (51.0 kgf/cm2, 725 psi) from target pressure for about 10 seconds (1 trip detection logic).

  • Leak of fuel
  • Fuel pipe (fuel tank - fuel pump assembly [for high pressure side])
  • Fuel pipe (fuel pump assembly [for high pressure side] - fuel injector assembly [for direct injection])
  • Fuel injector assembly (for direct injection)
  • Fuel pump assembly (for high pressure side)
  • Fuel pump (for low pressure side)
  • Fuel pressure sensor (for high pressure side)

SAE Code: P0087

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

If the fuel pressure decreases despite an increase request signal being sent to the fuel pump assembly (for high pressure side) by the ECM, the ECM will illuminate the MIL and store this DTC.

CONFIRMATION DRIVING PATTERN

HINT:

  • When clearing the permanent DTCs, refer to the "CLEAR PERMANENT DTC" procedure.

    Click here

  • Permanent misfire and fuel system DTCs can only be cleared when performing the universal trip driving pattern when no malfunction is detected.
  1. Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.
  2. Turn the engine switch on (IG).
  3. Turn the Techstream on.
  4. Record the Freeze Frame Data.
  5. Clear the DTCs (even if no DTCs are stored, perform the clear DTC procedure).
  6. Turn the engine switch off and wait for at least 30 seconds.
  7. Start the engine.
  8. Turn Techstream on.
  9. Based on the engine speed, engine load and other conditions displayed in the freeze frame data, reproduce the conditions present when the DTC was stored.
  10. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Trouble Codes.
  11. Read the pending DTCs.

    HINT:

    • If a pending DTC is output, the system is malfunctioning.
    • If a pending DTC is not output, perform the following procedure.
  12. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Utility / All Readiness.
  13. Input the DTC: P008700.
  14. Check the DTC judgment result.

    Techstream Display

    Description

    NORMAL

    • DTC judgment completed
    • System normal

    ABNORMAL

    • DTC judgment completed
    • System abnormal

    INCOMPLETE

    • DTC judgment not completed
    • Perform driving pattern after confirming DTC enabling conditions

    HINT:

    • If the judgment result is NORMAL, the system is normal.
    • If the judgment result is ABNORMAL, the system has a malfunction.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

HINT:

Read freeze frame data using the Techstream. The ECM records vehicle and driving condition information as freeze frame data the moment a DTC is stored. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, if the air fuel ratio was lean or rich, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.

PROCEDURE

1.

CHECK FUEL LEAK

(a) Check around and beneath the vehicle for fuel leaks, fumes, etc.

OK:

No fuel leaks present.
