    How do you know the FPR needs replacing? Has this been confirmed by having a fault code read?

    I would think that any fuel pressure measurement is done within the fuel pump itself because as a non-common rail engine, there is only fuel at high pressure from the 4 fuel pump outlets to the injectors. The injectors are just spring-operated valves that open when there's enough fuel pressure behind them. You can see the 4 metal pipes that lead from the pump to the 4 injectors at the front of the engine, and there's no sensors in any of them.

    The newer CDTi common-rail diesels have a fuel rail between the single-outlet high pressure fuel pump and the electronically controlled injectors and this is where the fuel pressure sensor and fuel pressure regulator are located.

    It's guess work really.

    The car has been cutting out for about a year now, at first it was once or twice every two or three months ut just recently it's become a lot worse. The rev counter bounces and then the car cuts out.

    Somtimes while driving you can feel it mis-fire, it cuts out when the clutch is down. It seems to carry on cutting out until it is rev'd hard, as though somthind was sticking.

    It's fine on short journeys but not so good after a short journey, being parked for a short period of time then started again. I thought this could be the heat transference into the FPR.

    I've been to two garages and neither can find a fault code!?

    A pump is £1000 so I'd check everything else first.

    What has been checked/changed so far so we don't cover old ground?

    Ask a dealer if ther FPR is available as a seperate item and how much it is. Then you'll know if this is a quick/cheap thing to try, or if it would be a whole replacement fuel pump that you needed.

    Did you check both the large air hoses and the small vacuum hoses?

    If it was me, I'd be making sure the fuel system was clean next - change the fuel filter if it is due, and trying some fuel system cleaner and some fuel pump lubricant (but not both at the same time).

    A lot of people on here swear by this stuff: http://www.millersoils.net/1_Millers..._AUTO_FUEL.htm

    Wynns professional range is also good: http://www.wynns.be/catalogue.aspx?nav=2&g=2&s=3&l=EN

    I recently put a bottle of this stuff in to lubricate the fuel pump seals now that there's not much sulphur in diesel:

    http://www.wynns.be/product.aspx?nav...7&p=46754&l=EN

    (Anyone who's reading this and has got a CDTi rather than a DTi needs this one:
    http://www.wynns.be/product.aspx?nav...1&p=12193&l=EN).

    Failing that you may be looking at internal damage to the fuel pump or problems with the fuel pump ECU. Both of these are know issues with DTi pump and can cause running problems but are expensive to fix and would need to be diagnosed by a dealer or diesel specialist.

    Has anyone else got any other ideas of things to look at?

    Looks like they are £50-£60 so I think i'll give it a go.

    Has anyone got any instructions?

    James, checked all the hoses and they seem fine. I'll get hold of some of the Wynns cleaner to see if it helps.

    After that i think i'll be onto the fuel pump but as you say, i'd need it professionally diagnosed.

    It's odd how it's fine until it heats up a bit and revving it seems to fix it for a while, although that could be coincidence..........

    Cheers

    the 2.2dti doesnt have a fuel presh regulator .... if you got problems with your car you need to have it checked out and diagnosed correctly ....if it is the pump they start at around 1k and go up to about £1600 plus fitting on top.....
