Called yesterday to update my SA. And on the way home it got really bad so I just took it in as an emergency drop off. I noticed that the whole way home my engine temp gauge was below normal but my fan was nonstop and louder than ever.

All symptoms match HPFP with the exception of the low temp and constant running of the fan . That just stared yesterday I donít know when if/when the HPFP was replaced. I have 74k on the car. Glad I got the extended warranty.

there is about 30k miles since last HPFP failure.
The thing is they are very methodical about the hpfp replacement, hpfp, lpfs, then injectors. Your issue may be something else but it's anybody's guess. Again, if the forum is any indicator, from tens of posts daily on hpfp, to every week a post here or there, this is a done deal. Even the haters don't bother to post anymore! LOL
