Dear customer, could you tell me please what diagnostic tool are you using?
Thanks in advance.

This tool

Dear customer, when the vehicle is cold, it costs to start or do you have to give several tries for the engine to start?

What I am observing is an error code referring to a defective fuel pump, therefore other error codes referring to the exhaust gases are being generated because there is a bad mixture due to this defect in the pump.

But before proceeding to replace the pump, several factors must be verified, above all, do certain maintenance like cleaning the injection rail, replacing the filters, verify that there is not much dirt in the fuel tank and the pump, it can be tested before replacing.

The car in the morning or cold when it starts it has little long crank but start in one go, motor oscillates about 3 minutes after it gets warm

Yes dear customer, it is very likely that you have problems with fuel pressure due to pump defects.

But I would recommend that you first perform a deep maintenance on the injection rail, disassembling the injection pump and the injectors and cleaning them in addition to a calibration in a test bench, this is recommended for the year of your car, but it is very likely that you should replace the low pump.

The low pump is located in the fuel tank.

Nice I bought the low pressure sensor too u think I try to change the low pressure sensor or go straight to the pump ?

It is not neccesary but if you want to replace it as well to have it all new, it is not bad.
