At MB Automotive Services, we provide expert diagnostic and repair services for the fuel system issues commonly associated with these vehicles, and our facility offers an unmatched level of precision in identifying and resolving them, ensuring that your luxury vehicle maintains its exceptional performance and reliability.

Common Fuel System Issues

Sudden Engine Stop and Sensor Failures

A sudden engine stop in Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles is often caused by electrical issues in the in-tank fuel pump or malfunctions in the high and low fuel pressure sensors. These components are crucial for delivering fuel to the engine at the correct pressure.

High Pressure Fuel Pump Failures

Failures in high-pressure fuel pumps are frequently due to defective fuel outlet valves. When this occurs, it is necessary to replace both high-pressure pumps to ensure the integrity and efficiency of the fuel system.

Diagnostic Codes and Misfires

Such failures can trigger the check engine light, setting off multiple misfire codes, along with codes P0087 and P0088, which indicate issues with low and high fuel pressure pumps and the high pressure fuel rail, respectively.

The Importance of Premium Fuel

Premium Fuel: A Necessity for Jaguar and Land Rover Vehicles

All Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles are designed to run on premium fuel. Using low-grade fuel can lead to significant drivability issues. The high-performance engines in these luxury vehicles require the higher octane found in premium fuels to operate efficiently and avoid pre-ignition or “knocking” that can occur with lower octane levels.

Consequences of Using Low-Grade Fuel

Using low-grade fuel not only compromises your vehicle’s performance but can also lead to critical failures in the fuel injector and catalytic converter, among other components. These failures are costly and can significantly reduce the lifespan of your vehicle.
