–  Select “Fuel pressure” from the list.
–  Compare pressure displayed on tester -VAS 6394/1- with actual value displayed on vehicle diagnostic tester.
–  Watch the fuel pressure on the vehicle diagnostic tester.
A maximum pressure deviation of 5 bar is permissible.
–  If the deviation is greater than 5 bar, renew fuel pressure sender - G247-.
–  Repeat test with new fuel pressure sender - G247- and compare both measured values.
–  If measured values are now the same, install new fuel pressure sender - G247-.
