My check engine light came on today. I plugged a scan tool in and it says "PO193 Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor Circuit High Input" The car loses power for 1 second then its right back. It happens around 2000 RPMs when im moving slower. I was looking around and some people are saying just to change the sensor to fix the promblem. It looks like its more common in FORDs. <p>I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this?

I think changing the sensor is the only option...<p>Bout $200 for the part, but it was recalled, so you may get it done free if your in a certain VIN range.<p>VERY COMMON. You may get misfire codes if it gets worse. My car would "jump" itself sometimes - jolts of unsolicited gas. Kind of scary.

<i>Don't</i> go to the dealer for this if you have any mechanical abilities at all. You're asking for a several hundred dollar repair bill (unless it's a warranty thing) for a job that should only take 30 minutes tops. You'll also likely pay double for the price of the part, just as a nice jumping off point (prices have gone up on parts).<p>If you need any pointers let me know. I've been staring at mine for 2 weeks anticipating swapping it out, and it really is ez pz.

Re: PO193 Engine Light - Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor (BryanR)

I don't know what year your car is, but this was a recall item on certain cars.<br>May want to check if you car was involved in the campaign.

Re: (BryanR)

This was the first problem ever when I got my R I should have gotten rid of it after that, it has been all down hill since...... Anyway good luck. It is an easy DIY though, took me about an hour , drank much beer while doing it.

I went to the Dealership today they put in a new Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor. It didn't cost me anything because of my 100k warranty. It took about 1.5 hours.<br>They also washed the outside and cleaned the inside of my car <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
