Forté's Technical Helpline receives over 300 calls per month. This blog shares solutions for garage workshops on common driveability concerns that can be quickly and effectively treated. The vast majority of those identified are caused by fuel and oil borne contamination formed by natural degradation or via the combustion process. This is a fact of life for internal combustion engines where fossil fuels and oils are used.

Problem with a KIA SORENTO 2.5 CRDi Misfire fault code P1181
KIA SORENTO 2.5 CRDi 2005 50K
Misfire, lack of power and cutting out intermittently. Management light on fault code stored P1181 fuel pressure deviation.
The fault was caused by the lining/coating on the fuel tank coming away and blocking the fuel pickup filter in the tank.
