2005 XLT Code P0190 Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor

Good Evening, all.

Tonight I went to pull out my 2005 XLT out of the garage and found it was idling rough to the point it died. I started it again and it was revving between 100-1500 rpms. I let the engine warm up but this did not alleviate the problem. Finally, the truck stalled and would not start again. I read the codes and recieved P0190 Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor malfunction. Can I safely assume I need a new sensor?

Yes. The shop ended up replacing both the fuel rail pressure sensor AND the fuel pump. Now, in retrospect, I wish I had them change the sensor first and fuel pump second as I still wonder if it was truly the pump. I trust my mechanic though (old friends) so I doubt he would lead me astray. Interestingly, I had a minor accident (rear-end) about 3 months prior and it might have been connected.

He may have changed the sensor first and when it didn't fix it he changed the fuel pump? Still had to charge for both though.
