As of late 2009, the low pressure fuel sensor has become suspected of causing some premature failures of the HPFP by engine tuners such as AMS and CP-E.

Any specific on the root cause design or manufacturing wise? It is the pump that can no longer build pressure? Is it a an internal leak because of a seal is not strong enough or corrosion? Anybody has pics or drawings?

It boggles my mind that no root cause stands out at this point.
