Kia Sorento: Fuel Pressure Test (Low pressure system) - Fuel Delivery System - Engine Control / Fuel System - Kia Sorento XM 2011-2019 Service ManualKia Sorento: Fuel Pressure Test (Low pressure system)

Second Generation XM (2011-2019) / Kia Sorento XM 2011-2019 Service Manual / Engine Control / Fuel System / Fuel Delivery System / Fuel Pressure Test (Low pressure system)

1.
Release the residual pressure in fuel line.
(Refer to the Fuel Delivery System - Repair Procedures - "Release Residual Pressure in Fuel Line")
  
When removing the fuel pump relay, a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) may occur. Delete the code with the GDS after completion of Release Residual Pressure in Fuel Line work.
2.
Install the Special Service Tool (SST).
(1)
Disconnect the low pressure fuel feed tube from the low pressure inlet of high pressure fuel pump.
  
There may be some residual pressure even after Release Residual Pressure in Fuel Line work, so cover the hose connection with a shop towel to prevent residual fuel from spilling out before disconnecting any fuel connection.
(2)
Install the special service tool for measuring the fuel pressure in between the low fuel feed tube and the low pressure inlet of high pressure fuel pump (Refer to the figure below).

3.
Inspect fuel leakage on connections among the low fuel feed tube, the low pressure inlet of high pressure fuel pump, and the SST components with IG ON.
4.
Measure Fuel Pressure.
(1)
Start the engine and measure the fuel pressure at idle.

Fuel Pressure:
500 kPa (5.1 kgf/cm², 72.5 psi)

  
If the fuel pressure differs from the standard value, repair or replace the related part (Refer to the table below).

(2)
Stop the engine, and then check for the change in the fuel pressure gauge reading.

Standard Value: The gauge reading should hold for about 5 minutes after the engine stops

  
If the gauge reading should not be held, repair or replace the related part (Refer to the table below).

(3)
Turn the ignition switch OFF.
5.
Release the residual pressure in fuel line.
(Refer to the Fuel Delivery System - Repair Procedures - "Release Residual Pressure in Fuel Line")
  
When removing the fuel pump relay, a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) may occur. Delete the code with the GDS after completion of Release Residual Pressure in Fuel Line work.

Test End
(1)
Remove the Special Service Tool (SST) from the low pressure fuel feed tube and the low pressure inlet of high pressure fuel pump.
(2)
Connect the low pressure fuel feed tube and the low pressure inlet of high pressure fuel pump.
