Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: Low Pressure Fuel System Pressure - Too Low (P008A00)

Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual / Engine / A25a-fxs Engine Control / Sfi System / Low Pressure Fuel System Pressure - Too Low (P008A00)

DESCRIPTION

In order to supply the optimal fuel pressure according to the driving conditions and usage environment, the variable fuel system sends a drive signal from the ECM to the fuel pump control ECU, steplessly performing variable control of the fuel pump (for low pressure side) and receiving feedback about the fuel pressure (for low pressure side) from the fuel pressure sensor (for low pressure side).

Low Pressure Fuel System Pressure - Too Low

The actual fuel pressure (for low pressure side) value is less than the target fuel pressure (for low pressure side) by a certain amount or more (1 trip detection logic).

  • Leak of fuel
  • Fuel pump control ECU
  • Fuel pressure sensor (for low pressure side)
  • Fuel pump (for low pressure side)
  • Fuel main valve assembly (for high pressure)
  • ECM

Does not come on

DTC stored

SAE Code: P008A

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

If the fuel pressure (for low pressure side) decreases despite an increase request signal being sent to the fuel pump control ECU by the ECM, the ECM will store this DTC.

    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.
    • If the judgment result is INCOMPLETE, perform steps [B] through [D] again.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

  • Vehicle Control History may be stored in the hybrid vehicle control ECU assembly if the engine is malfunctioning. Certain vehicle condition information is recorded when Vehicle Control History is stored. Reading the vehicle conditions recorded in both the Freeze Frame Data and Vehicle Control History can be useful for troubleshooting.

    (Select Powertrain in Health Check and then check the time stamp data.)

    Click here

  • If any "Engine Malfunction" Vehicle Control History item has been stored in the hybrid vehicle control ECU assembly, make sure to clear it. However, as all Vehicle Control History items are cleared simultaneously, if any Vehicle Control History items other than "Engine Malfunction" are stored, make sure to perform any troubleshooting for them before clearing Vehicle Control History.

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.
