Has anyone seen the P2187 code come up? It says the system is too lean at idle.

I erased the code on the post date & today the amber check engine light came on again throwing the same code.

Haven't heard of that one. Did u call service?
Not yet, I been on vacation. It drives fine. Cold start is the only time you can tell something is off, which is when the idle varies until it settles down to normal. This will be a good time for the airbag recall sorting as well.

So I took my 12 Evoque in for the check engine light with code P2187. The service rep called & said the low pressure fuel pump is the problem. I should have it back tomorrow provided the install goes well & they don't find any other issues.The airbag recall only requires a 're-flash. My fingers are crossed. Currently I have just over 44,000 miles on the odometer.

Finally got my rig back this evening and about 2 hours later the check engine light is on again and throwing the same code, P 2187. I'd be willing to bet now that the low pressure fuel pump isn't causing the problem.

Below is the screen from my OBDII scanner. Taking my Rover back in on Monday as there is no sense in letting it just sit in service over the weekend.

Probably doesn't apply to your Evoque, but when I had a Bank 1 Lean code (similar code to what you're getting) on my 4-Runner, it was a dirty/ bad MAF (Mass Airflow) sensor. Many people had the same issue on their 4-Runners - especially those running K&N filters who over oiled them.

DVFlyer I was surprised when service said a fuel pump because, as you mentioned, I was expecting a sensor issue considering the vehicle ran well. Service seemed sure it was the low pressure fuel pump. Once service got the pump apparently it didn't match up to the sending unit so another delay.

Service did take care of the airbag recall and cured a non-retracting lumbar support on the passenger side.

I will post an update after Monday's return to service.

I just got an update from the service manager. They don't know what's wrong! They're trying to figure it out...

The service manager called yesterday to inform me that they have ordered new fuel injectors... :confused:

Service thinks this is related to the work performed in April/May, which I posted, titled amber check engine.

My dealer said I had a fuel pump issue too a few months back. The car was chugging at speeds of around 70 mph... almost like it was losing power or the feeling you'd get if you let off on a clutch. It also idles really rough. Whatever they did cured it for about a week, now it's back to the chugging and rough idle. I have been so busy I haven't made another appointment (not a good excuse), but got a letter in the mail yesterday that has me SCARED. It was from Consumer Legal Services, RE: Lemon Laws in ALL states and it specified Evoques 2011 - 2014!! It said many "owners were experiencing problems with the engine, suspension, steering, fuel system, and electrical system". It went on to say I may be eligible for "vehicle refund, vehicle replacement, or money damages"!! Seriously? Is this gonna get worse before it gets better? Is this in response to all the posts I'm seeing on the fuel system?

Great! Haven't received a letter yet & LR sure hasn't mentioned anything. The high pressure fuel pump & sensors were replaced back in April, in the amber post. My Rover was in service 30 days that time.

Sounds to me like an advertisement for a Lemon Law Attorney.

I sure hope you're right! Below is the latest from Service;

"I just checked with tech and he says the injectors were clogged up. After replacement of those the car runs better on startup but still has some lean codes. He ordered two oxygen sensors yesterday but they haven’t arrived as of right now."

I'm pushing just over 1,000 mile on their loaner!

Since our engines are direct injection, which means the injector is in the combustion chamber, it would be interesting to know if the injectors were clogged
on the input side, dirt etc. in the gasoline. Or were the tips of the injectors clogged with carbon from being in the combustion chamber?

I will ask. I had the same issue with my Mini Cooper S and it was carbon build up.
