DTC P0093 can be detected if the problem occurs when the engine idles for 1 minute and then it runs at 2,500 rpm for 30 seconds. If DTC P1229 is set, P0093 (fuel leaks in high-pressure areas) may be set simultaneously. This may be due to the extremely high internal fuel pressure in the common rail causing the pressure limiter to open. The ECM may interpret this as a fault and set P0093


To detect atmospheric pressure, the atmospheric pressure sensor built into the ECM is used in the common rail system. Following the changes in the atmospheric pressure, the ECM corrects the fuel injection volume, timing and duration, and adjusts the common rail internal fuel pressure for optimizing combustion.
