Default Grand voyager - engine cuts out at high revs

Hi, thanks for having me here. My beloved 2.8l grand voyager cuts out when I accelerate hard. Everything switches off and I have to pull over and restart.
It restarts fine. There are no dash lights on.

I took it to a local garage who hooked it up to diagnostics and said it came back with a ‘low fuel pressure’ code. They said they checked under the bonnet for anything obvious but couldn’t see anything. They are too busy to fit me in at the moment and then I got a lecture about how ‘a family like mine’ just needs a zafira and how it may not be worth fixing.

Anyone any experience of this problem? Should I go to a Chrysler dealer? Is there a way to find a garage that won’t treat me like I’m thick? And also won’t overcharge me? I’m near Yarmouth in Norfolk.

Any help greatly appreciated!

Suzie

I'm like a broken record on this lol.
Both mines suffered the same issue, both times it was the fuel filter. On my 2.5 diesel, removing and refitting the filter bowl cured it, my 2.8 the fuel filter was loose. Has the fuel filter been changed recently?
If the fuel filter hasn't been changed for a while, changing it may resolve the issue as well.
Failing that, the fuel filter housing can crack and allow air in.
Symptoms exactly the same.

Well at least you got a fault code. Injector fuel leakage test required. Might be just the pressure valve on the fuel rail even. MAP would shut it down like it did on mine. Cleaning out the gunk made no difference. But no code like yours.
