This 1.0 Ford ECOBoost came into us after visiting a local ford dealership who failed to diagnose any issue with the vehicle after displaying the engine management light. The 1.0 ECOBoost engine is becoming more and more common in our workshop, this is a fairly common issue that we diagnosed.
The fault is P0089 and this fault code relates to the fuel pressure in the cases we have seen vehicles to not display poor running and this ONLY tends to happen a light thottle. After logging the data and testing the vehicle over two days we manage to get the fault to return and logged the fault so as we could see the exact fuel pressure, revs and temperature that it occurred.
Using a combination of Ford IDS and Forescan we applied the latest software update to the engine ECU to ensure the highest level was already met before we changed any parts. Currently we are awaiting a genuine ford fuel rail pressure sensor as they are currently on back order from ford (this tells us that the fault is common as there is little or no stock).
