Re: 2013 malibu turbo fuel psi
I was wondering what the 2.0 turbo fuel rail psi is, I'm having some issues with the car jerking under load it's showing 3100 kpa at idle. Thanks
I am in no way an actual technician and you're better off getting a professional opinion over what I say.
That said 3,100kpa seems like it's right around the normal operating range of a direct injection idle pressure. 3,100kpa is about 450psi. Of course this isn't GM specific but a direct injection engine can run from about 300psi(2,000kpa) to around 2,500psi(17,000kpa) all depending on engine type, load, air induction, ect.
At idle your engine isn't under a load and there's no boost being produced from the turbo so your fuel demand will be low. For now i'd say your 3,100kpa is about normal....... Unless you can find someone with more knowledge that can say for certain if it's low or not.
