If I interpret that paragraph correctly the Injection light should light if something is wrong with the highlighted section. And certainly the last part but in that case the engine would stop.Malfunctions
If a fault occurs in any of the following circuits:
manifold absolute pressure sensor, fuel temperature
sensor or coolant temperature sensor, the ECM will
provide substitute values. In the case of a faulty
throttle position sensor, start of injection sensor or
injection timing device, the engine will run at a
reduced performance level.
If the servo unit potentiometer or servo unit fails, the
injection system is deactivated. The engine shuts
down as a result.
I assume you meant fuel quantity and not timing?dave3d said:The FIP timing is altered by the position of the top cover.
After you fixed the electric lift pump which makes it easier to start and all the leaks from overflow hoses which ensures you don’t get air in the system and the leaking FIP itself you still have the original problem to deal with.Hi all, I have just joined the P38 fraternity with my very recent purchase of a 1998 diesel variant... As per usual there are a few issues that need sorting and indeed may well be connected.
I bought it from a trusted friend who has told me it has had a new engine approx 30K miles ago and he had no issues with it running until he noticed a leak in the fuel injection pump about 3 months ago.
He duly had this rebuilt at a cost of around £800 and since then it started randomly losing power and on a few occasions has cut out on him. He then parked it on his drive and bought another vehicle to use, with the intention of maybe fixing the Rangie when he had the time. A few months later here we are...
Ok, so down to facts...
He tells me it runs rough sometimes and occasionally cuts out, it loses power going up....
