Hi Guys. we have a Voyager; 2.8CRD automatic. just off the motorway and the engine just died, not to go again. our local expert plugged his diagnostic (Fluke Bluetooth) into it and decided there was no electrical problem. we disconnected the output pipe from the main fuel pump, when pumping the primer pump, fuel came out, when then cranking the motor, very little fuel came.. should be 300bar!? apparently the only answer is to replace the main fuel pump, this means removing the timing cover, belt, and it looks like a nightmare (air-con collector in the way and no space to work)... is this the only answer or is there an alternative??
It is a 2006 year, 2.8CRD Automatic (standard (not Grand)) with around 41,000 miles on the clock
are there any electrical connections that would cause the motor to stop and give same result??
I have a sneaking suspicion that there's nothing wrong with the fuel pump and some tiny wire connection somewhere has come adrift and the whole shebang stops!?!?
The borrowed solenoid valve was "only Borrowed", I had to return it, I'm now waiting for another one, but it looks like I have to buy the whole injection pump to get another solenoid valve... the agents want a HUGE amount of money for the valve alone!!! Hoping it will arrive tomorrow.
By the way...the motor will not start at all with the original Fuel Control Valve in place.. I want to check if the control valve does anything when I put voltage on it... Do you know what voltage the system puts on it to operate it? ie: 12Volts? or would it be less? I don't want to totally destroy the damm thing just in case the problem is elsewhere... First Do No Harm!
Hi Mike, Sorry for the delay, we are still waiting for the spares, but, I return to South Africa tomorrow, so someone else will have to fit the solenoid flow control valve when it finally puts in an appearance. Many thanks for your help. best regards. James
