Been busy, thanks for verifying the vp30 and injectors are OK. the timing chain is correct I had 6mm drills in all 3 holes and all sprockets were turned back and tightened when the chain was tight.
the PCM will need checking for faults but I have read that the NEW pump will need to be retimed by the PCM interface
This blog has basically the same fault but he changed the timing solenoid. But states if you have a new pump it need re-timing
Does this mean the chain timing or timing by the PCM interface.
I will try to get the PCM test done tomorrow
the replacement pump doesn't need to be timed to the PCM, the only programming needed when a pump is replaced is the immobiliser.
The timing people refer to will be making sure the pump is correctly timed when fitted.
As I said earlier if the original codes aren't cleared or any are set when the pump is bled due to the air then these need to be deleted.
Let me know if I can assists further.
I have finally got the PCM codes read (my readers Won't read them) and a full read out printed. The stored codes were
P0404 (PCM) EGR valve position Control Fault (the EGR has a Blanking plate in
P1666 (PCM) (FIP) Crank Ref syncronisation
P0149 (PCM) Fuel timing error reported by (FIP)
P1564 (PCM) (FIP) requesting reduced fuel Mode
And B1318 -no discription
these were all cleared and the engine was started again
after a few seconds P0149 came back and the engine was still running (pinking)
we were told that after alittle while the others may come back as well.
So the fault was not cleared by resetting as suggested
I am certain that the chain timing was done correctly if that is so (i will check again) is it that the NEW pump (from Euro carparts at £900) is faulty. (ie timing solenoid). Or could you come up with anything else.
P1564 was not present are you saying that it is not the timing solenoid if it is not present
please ignor that last reply P1564 was present with P0149 therefore you are saying that If the chain timing is correct (which I shall re-check tommorrow then it is the timing solenoid on the new pump at fault.
which should be under warranty.
