So this has been quite a long standing problem I have had on my 3.0TDI, but it has recently become undrivable! When under load (used to be full throttle now it is most of the time) I get a flashing coil light. If I do a scan, the fault I get is “Fuel Pressure Regulation Control limit exceeded Upper limit exceeded”. I have already replaced the high fuel pressure sensor on the LH rail and the high fuel pressure regulator on the RH rail.

I know there is a flow metering valve on the back of the HPFP, so this is going to be my next target as it is the only thing left that hasn’t been replaced. This is getting expensive though, so wondered if anyone has seen a similar fault and how they fixed it?

I have attached a scan below, and will try and make a data log when it happens.
