Dear costumer it is rare because it gotta be a high pressure issue on the rail enough to cause damage or they can be blocked causing an excessive pressure betwen inyector and high pump?

What else could it be
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 20 days ago.

Dear costumer it can also be a low pump issue but it is estrictly related to the pressure regulation between high and low pumps. they can even have a sychronization issue, despite you have told me that the distribution is not right there is some kind of game that causes an effort that ends breaking the pump
