What is an injector control pressure sensor replacement?

If your ICP sensor is found to be malfunctioning (which can happen over time due to normal wear and tear), a mechanic will remove and replace it.
The problem you’re experiencing may be limited to the sensor, but it could also be a larger issue involving dysfunction in the fuel pump.
Replacing the ICP sensor alone will cost roughly $250 to $600, depending on the make of your vehicle and the cost of labor where you live. More extensive repairs will come with higher bills.

How do I know if I need an injector control pressure sensor replacement?

It can be tricky to diagnose a problem with your fuel system if you’re not mechanically trained. The following issues may indicate that your ICP sensor is damaged or broken:
  • Engine sputtering
  • Rough idling
  • Rough acceleration
  • Check engine light is illuminated
If you have an OBD reader, you can figure out which error code is causing your engine light to turn on, but any given error could have several causes.

In this procedure, the mechanic will:
  • Test functioning of the sensor to confirm it’s not working
  • Pop the hood or jack up the car, depending on where the ICP sensor is located
  • Disconnect and remove the faulty sensor
  • Insert and connect a new sensor
  • Clear any error codes, then run the vehicle to test for proper functioning
