About Fuel Pressure Sensors

The Citroen fuel pressure sensor works with the rest of the fuel system to improve the performance of the engine, enabling it to work as efficiently as possible while increasing the life of the engine.  

The Citroen fuel pressure sensor is usually part of the fuel injector rail. The fuel injector rail is attached to the fuel tank, having an inlet for each injector and an inlet to the fuel supply.

Fuel systems in modern vehicles deliver adjustable fuel pressure, adapting the pressure to meet the demands of the power output of the engine. Fuel pressure and the timing of fuel injection are crucial to determining the amount of fuel entering the cylinders. The fuel injection system usually primarily consists of an electronic fuel pump, fuel metering valves, a fuel injector rail with a fuel pressure sensor/regulator, and fuel injectors, which work together to ensure the correct fuel pressure is achieved and the exact amount of fuel injected into the cylinders at precisely the right time. The fuel is sprayed into the chambers of the engine, controlled by the computerised control unit, which manages the timing of this process. The fuel injectors are fitted close to the inlet manifold, one for each cylinder, and are all calibrated (adjusted) to equally spray a mist of fuel into the intake of each cylinder in a sequence controlled electronically, for the sequential firing of the engine. The overall result of this ensures the engine is working to its optimum, providing more power and fuel efficiency. The Citroen fuel pressure sensor measures the pressure of the fuel in the fuel rail. This information is sent to the car's ECU (Engine Control Unit) which makes adjustments based on this and various other data from other engine sensors to ensure the conditions are perfect for optimum combustion.

An engine that won't start; a misfiring engine; an engine that struggles and stutters at high speeds;  loss of power while accelerating; loss of power when driving uphill; and the vehicle surging or jumping forward when in motion could all be signs of a fuel pressure sensor. There are many things that can go wrong in the engine and with the fuel system, so it is a good idea to consult with your mechanic to establish the exact cause of the fault before buying replacement parts. Specifically designed for the make and model of your vehicle, the Citroen fuel pressure sensor is the ideal choice when replacing this part.

Citroen trivia

  • Between 1925 and 1935, the Eiffel Tower was just a big, pointy billboard with the word 'Citroën' in bright lights from top to bottom. This was the first use of lights to advertise on the tower, and Citroën renewed the adverts every year until they were bought out by Michelin.
  • The 1934 Citroën 7CV was the first mass-produced car to have front-wheel drive, hydraulic brakes, and real suspension! This basic design found its way into subsequent models right up until three decades later in the mid-1950s.
  • Unfortunately, the founder of Citroën went bankrupt in 1934, even though the cars they produced were selling well and incredibly popular. The company exists today because tyre company Michelin bought the majority of shares in the company.
  • After WWII, Michelin owned Citroën and wanted to make a car for the people. The Citroën 2CV was designed for driving on French roads, so it was incredibly sturdy, and tests were carried out by driving through ploughed fields with trays of eggs on the seats. Although changes in design happened, some version of the Citroën 2CV was in production from 1949 all the way through to 1990.
  • In 1968, Citroën bought control of the Italian car firm Maserati. That purchase led to the design of the Citroën GT, which came with hydro-pneumatic suspension and a V6 engine. It did well in terms of sales, but production of the last version, the DS23 Pallas Electronique, was stopped in 1975 after the '73 oil crisis.
